Marvin Gaye

Marvin Gaye (April 2, 1939 – April 1, 1984), born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr., was an American singer-songwriter and musician whose career spanned more than two decades. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he was the son of a storefront minister of a local Pentecostal church sect and grew up singing gospel in church revivals as a young child. Gaye branched out into secular music as a teenager, joining the doo-wop group The Marquees, after returning from an honorable discharge from the United States Air Force, before the group was hired by Harvey Fuqua to be Harvey & The Moonglows. Following the band's separation in 1960, Gaye began working as a session drummer for the Detroit music label, Anna, before signing with Motown Records in 1961, adding an "e" to his s… more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Oh, I was a fool from the start
Fooling around with my mind instead of my heart
I was young and fine and you plucked me clean
Oh, but you didn't know that, I didn't know that
You didn't know what I mean

You know you had a brother who thought he was cool
But really, I was a dumb little fool
You said you'd never, never go away
And stand beside me night and day
You said you would love and obey
Well you should, well you should
It can only get you good

Dumb little fool
I was a dumb little fool
But I'll never get enough get enough
Enough of that funky stuff
I'm gonna jump back in
Up to my neck again

You always knew that I
Wasn't that kind of guy
All the times I thought you knew
Well I was busy loving you
What was you afraid to lose?
Everybody's got to choose

I don't know if I'm gonna get a yeah or nay
Or if I'm gonna do what his honor says

Well if I decide, baby, what you want (too possessive, jealous)
I wanna know (she was too possessive, jealous)
You would be satisfied (she was too possessive, jealous)
You would be satisfied, baby (she was too possessive, jealous)
You would be satisfied, baby (she was too possessive, jealous)
Would you be satisfied? (She was too possessive, jealous)

Is that enough, baby? (She was too possessive, jealous)
Is that enough?
Last you a lifetime
Is that enough?
Is that enough?
Keep you happy
Is that enough?
You know I know you 
And I know that you just love
That expensive stuff

You got a flair for style
And the style is all the while
What could I do?
The judge said she got to keep on living
The way she accustomed to
She trying to break a man
I don't understand
Somebody tell me please, tell me, please
Why do I have to pay attorney fees? (My baby's)
Attorney fees (ooh baby)
This is a joke
I need a smoke
Wait a minute
