Song Lyric Sunday – Cruisin’ – Smokey Robinson

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday from Helen Vahdati is DRINK/DRIVE

So many songs to choose from!  The list is endless.

My choice evokes lots of great memories, one being from just a year ago when I had the chance to see Smokey Robinson in concert again, many years after the first time.  This guy still has it!  He was amazing and his rendition of Cruisin’ brought the house down.

Enjoy it!

Cruisin’

Baby let’s cruise, away from here
Don’t be confused, the way is clear
And if you want it you got it forever
This is not a one night stand, baby, yeah so
Let the music take your mind, ooh
Just release and you will find
You’re gonna fly away
Glad you’re goin’ my way
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together
The music is played for love
Cruisin’ is made for love
I love it when we’re cruisin’ togetherBaby tonight belongs to us
Every thing’s right, do what you must
And inch by inch we get closer and closer
To every little part of each other ooh baby, yeahSo let the music take your mind
Just release and you will findYou’re gonna fly away
Glad you’re going my way
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together
The music is played for love
Cruisin’ is made for love
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together
Cruisin’” is a 1979 single written, produced, and recorded by Smokey Robinson for Motown Records’ Tamla label.
Enjoy your Sunday!

    Smokey Robinson always “had it,” and will continue to “have it” even after he departs this mortal plane. He’s a classic.

      Yes I agree. To still look and sound so good in his seventies and still performing is fantastic! Some will always “have it” 😊
