The Commodores is an American funk/soul band of the 1970s and 1980s. The members of the group met as mostly freshmen at Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) in 1968, and signed with Motown in November 1972, having first caught the public eye opening for The Jackson 5 while on tour. more »

Show me a river that's so deep
Show me a mountain so high
I'll show you love that'll last forever
Flying high, so high

Ah, show me a place where dreams are for dreamers
And all the things you wish come true, yeah
I'd wish the world had all happy people
Then there'd be no more wishing to do

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh

Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo,
Sweet, sweet love

Sun shines over the rainbow
High on a hill
Take a ride on a magic carpet
And you know its for real

The world is filled with all the lonely people
Trying to find their way
All they need is a hand to guide them
To a brighter day

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love (sweet, sweet love)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (well, well)
Sweet love (sweet, sweet love)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, yeah
Sweet love

Sweet love that comes through the ages
Reach out and touch my soul
Gave my life so much meaning
And everyone a heart of gold

Oh, oh, oh, oh,
Sweet love (well, well, well)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (sweet, sweet, sweet love)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (sweet sweet, sweet sweet love)
Ooo ooo

Oh you needed love (ohh sweet love)
Sweet, sweet love
(Ohh ohh) Sweet love

I know you're searchin'
I know you're searchin', for a little love
A little peace and understanding
And I know it's been hard tryin' to find your way
But you got to keep on searchin' harder day by day
'Cause I want you, and you, you, you, you, you, you, you you and you
To stand on up, yes sir
Put a little love in your heart
And little heart in your love
Together we can make a way
Listen to me
Don't wonder to hard ah, of what I trying to say
'Cause it's love, love's the only way

Oh, nothin' but love
Oh oh (Love)
Sweet love (Sweet love, ow)
Oh, oh, oh, (When you're down and out and you can't see your way)
Sweet love (And you need a friend, well-ell-ell)

Oh, oh, oh,  (Just call on love, love)
Sweet love (Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love)
