The Shirelles

The Shirelles were an African American girl group that achieved popularity in the early 1960s. They consisted of schoolmates Shirley Owens (later Shirley Alston-Reeves), Doris Coley (later Doris Kenner-Jackson), Addie "Micki" Harris (later Addie Harris McPherson), and Beverly Lee. They have been described as either the first African-American girl group to top the Billboard Hot 100, or the first girl group overall, with the song "Will You Love Me Tomorrow". more »

It's not the way you smile that touched my heart
It's not the way you kiss that tears my apart
But how many many many nights roll by
I sit alone at home and cry over you
What can I do
I can't help myself
'Cause baby it's you
Baby it's you
You should hear what they say about you (Cheat, cheat)
They say, they say you never never ever been true (Cheat, cheat)
Wo ho, it doesn't matter what they say
I know I'm gonna love you any old way
What can I do, when it's true
Don't want nobody, nobody
'Cause baby it's you
Baby it's you
Wo ho how many many many nights roll by
I sit alone at home and cry over you
What can I do
Can't help myself, 
'Cause baby, it's you 
Baby, it's you
Don't leave me alone 
Come on home
