The Marvelettes

The Marvelettes were an all-girl group who achieved popularity in the early to mid-1960s. They consisted of schoolmates Gladys Horton, Katherine Anderson (later Katherine Anderson Schnaffer), Georgeanna Tillman (later Georgeanna Tillman-Gordon), Juanita Cowart (later Juanita Cowart Motley) and Georgia Dobbins, who was replaced by Wanda Young (later Wanda Rogers) prior to the group signing their first deal. The group was the first major successful act of Motown Records after The Miracles and were its first significant successful girl group on the label's early years after the release of the number-one single, "Please Mr. Postman", one of the first number-one singles recorded by an all-female vocal group and the first by a Motown recording act. more »


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

It won't hurt me when you tell me we are through, yeah 
Now I've found me someone just as sweet as you 
He's gentle & he's kind, he won't leave me behind 
So I'm not gonna cry, boy, when you say goodbye, boy 
For I know somehow, somewhere, someday 
You've got to pay, boy, for your cheating ways 

When you feel that you must go, be on your way, yeah 
For the love I had for you belongs to yesterday 
You hurt me, so I know it's better if you go 
Don't worry when you're gone, boy, 'cause I'll get along, boy 
I'm feelin' sorry for you, you'll find out one day it's true 
You've got to pay, boy, for your cheating ways 

(I gave my love to you; you showed me you just won't be true, true) 

After all you've said & done, it's just that I 
Won't wait until you're ready, dear, to say goodbye 
You walked right out that door & left me once before 
Oh but this time it's something new; it's me that's leaving you 
So now you're on your own, & when you're all alone 
You've finally got to pay, boy, for your cheating ways 
I said you've got to pay, little boy, for your cheating ways 
You know that you've been wrong, you've been cheating all along 
...& fade
