Ben E. King Do It In The Name Of Love

Do it, do it, you can do it

Do it in the name of love

(Do it) baby (do it)

I like to see you

(Do it in the name of love)

Oh, woman, why don’t you (do it)

I’d like to see you try (do it)

Why don’t you do it

(Do it in the name of love)

My mama told me a long time ago

Remember, in love

There’s no easy road

You’ve got to give more than you get

You never know what to expect

Hey, sometimes you’re up (up)

Sometimes you’re down (down)

Sometimes you whole word will

Come crashing down (crashing down)

Oh, love can be

No more than you make it

Hang on in there

And you’re gonna make it

Just get your strength

From the Lord above

Hey, do it (do it) do (do it)

Do it in the name of love

(Do it) oh, yeah (do it)

Why don’t you do it

In the name of love (do it)

You’ve got to work (work)

Fight (fight)

Try with all your might

Get your strength from

The Lord up above, oh, oh, hey

Do it in the name of love

(Do it) and I’d like to see you try

(Do it) why don’t you

(Do it in the name of love)

I’d like to see you try (do it)

Why don’t you (do it) oh, no, no

(Do it in the name of love)

There’s temptations all around

Don’t you let it get you down

Think about your woman

(Think about your woman)

Think about your man

(Think about your man)

Keep it together

Stay hand in hand

(Hand in hand)

Sometimes you cause

Each other so much pain

And then again

You’re sweet as sugar cane

You’ve got to show

What you give for each other

Then you will succeed as lovers

Just get your strength from

The Lord up above (Lord above)

And do it, do it

Do it in the name of love

(Do it) yeah, hey, hey (do it)

Why don’t you do it in

The name of love (do it)

You’ve got to work (work)

Fight (fight)

Try with all your might

Get your strength from

The Lord up above

(From the Lord above) oh

Do it in the name of love

(Do it) why don’t you try (do it)

Do it, do it, do it

(Do it in the name of love)

Hey, honey

Why don’t you try (do it)

You can do it (do it)

Why don’t you

(Do it in the name of love)

Ben E. King I Count The Tears

Na, na, na, na, na, na late at nite

Na, na, na, na, na, na late at nite

I have counted everyday since you’ve been away

It seemed like a thousand years

And at na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night

Na, na, na, na, na, na late at night

I’ll sit and count the tears

I have counted all your lies all your alibis

I’m a guy believes just what he hears

And at na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night

Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night

I’ll sit and count the tears

She’s gone and found somebody new

He may be happy now but soon

He’ll be counting everyday that she’s been away

It’ll seem like a thousand years

And at na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night

Na, na, na, na, na, na, late at night

He’ll sit and count his tears

He’ll sit and count his tears

He’ll sit and count his tears

He’ll sit…and count his tears

Ben E. King This Magic Moment

This magic moment

So different and so new

But like any other

Until I kissed you

And then it happened

It took me by surprise

I knew that you felt it too

By the look in your eyes

Sweeter than wine

Softer than the summer night

Everything I want I have

Whenever I hold you tight

This magic moment

While your lips are close to mine

Will last forever

Forever till the end of time

Sweeter than wine

Softer than the summer night

Everything I want I have

Whenever I hold you tight

This magic moment

While your lips are close to mine

Will last forever

Forever till the end of time

Magic moment…

Ben E. King On The Horizon

On the horizon out where the ocean greets the sky

On the horizon I saw a ship go sailing by

This was the ship that I’d often dreamed of

A ship made of gold with a golden sail above

This was the ship that I dreamed would someday bring my love

On the horizon out where the lonely seagulls cry

On the horizon my ship of dreams came sailing by

Sailing to me with this cargo so rare

It kept comin’ closer and closer I swear

Closer and closer ’til I woke up and found you there

Oh, on the horizon, the horizon, the horizon

Ben E. King Save The Last Dance For Me

You can dance

Every dance with the guy

Who gave you the eye

Let him hold you tight

You can smile

Every smile for the man

Who held your hand

‘Neath the pale moonlight

But don’t forget who’s taking you home

And in whose arms you’re gonna be

So darlin’

Save the last dance for me

Oh I know

That the music is fine

Like sparkling wine

Go and have your fun

Laugh and sing

But while we’re apart

Don’t give your heart

To anyone

But don’t forget who’s taking you home

And in whose arms you’re gonna be

So darlin’

Save the last dance for me

Baby don’t you know I love you so?

Can’t you feel it when we touch?

I will never, never let you go

I love you oh so much

You can dance

Go and carry on

Till the night is gone

And it’s time to go

If he asks

If you’re all alone

Can he take you home

You must tell him no

‘Cause don’t forget who’s taking you home

And in whose arms you’re gonna be

So darlin’

Save the last dance for me

‘Cause don’t forget who’s taking you home

And in whose arms you’re gonna be

So darlin’

Save the last dance for me

Save the last dance for me

Save the last dance for me

Ben E. King Spanish Harlem

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem

A red rose up in Spanish Harlem

It is the special one, it’s never seen the sun

It only comes out when the moon is on the run

And all the stars are gleaming

It’s growing in the street

Right up through the concrete

But soft and sweet and dreaming

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem

A red rose up in Spanish Harlem

With eyes as black as coal

That looks down in my soul

And starts a fire there and then I lose control

I have to beg your pardon

I’m going to pick that rose

And watch her as she grows

In my garden

I’m going to pick that rose

And watch her as she grows

In my garden

(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)…
