Once upon a time, when I was in high school
I was in love with you, lady and you treated me so cool.
I was drivin' a Chevy '72 had 4 on the floor, girl,
One hundred 20 it would do

I remember Marvin Gaye, singin',
What's goin' on

There was a war, baby, somewhere across the sea
I didn't wanna go and fight, girl, but you were really lovin' me.
I remember Martin Luther King,
Lord he was the man, baby, that gave us all a dream.

I remember Marvin Gaye, singin',
What's goin' on
Don't play with my love no,
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', What's goin' on

We used to have sweet music in the park
Lord up at Monterey a they sang throughout the dark
You used to wear girl, those hot pants
When you strolled down the hall,
All the boys wanted a chance...

I remember Marvin Gaye, singin',
What's goin' on
Don't play with my love, no
I remember Otis Redding, Sittin' at the Dock of the Bay
Ahh, he went away..
I remember Sam Cooke ya'll, Bring It On Home To Me,
From your love I can't be free
I remember Elvis Presley, and the Blue Suede Shoes
Ahh it gave me the blues.
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin' Let's get it on
