The Stylistics

The Stylistics are a soul music vocal group, and were one of the best-known Philadelphia soul groups of the 1970s. They formed in 1968, and were composed of lead Russell Thompkins, Jr., Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn. All of their US hits were ballads, graced by the soaring falsetto of Russell Thompkins, Jr. and the lush productions of Thom Bell, which helped make the Stylistics one of the most successful soul groups of the first half of the 1970s." During the early 1970s, the group had twelve consecutive U.S. R&B top ten hits, including "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)", "You Are Everything", "Betcha by Golly, Wow", "I'm Stone in Love with You", "Break Up to Make Up", and "You Make Me Feel Brand New". more »

By mistake I heard
Some news about you
I just turned my head
And closed my ears
It hurts so bad

First I tried to look
I paused a moment
Just to catch my breath
Until I saw how big a fool I was

To love you so
The way [Incomprehensible]
I had no where to go

Remember when I told you
Not long ago
If you wanted somebody new
To make me know

One day you know
Just how it feels

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog

It seems like only yesterday
We chased a rainbow
Now our pot of gold
Has turned to worthless, useless simple tune

It was just a dream
And I just woke up
I don't have anything

Now you seem to act so strange
I told you so
Only got yourself to blame
Wanna let you know

One day you'll see
Just how it feels

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog

Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
Pay back is a dog
Dog, it's a dog
