About Still Water (Love)

"Still Water (Love)" is a 1970 hit single written by Smokey Robinson and Frank Wilson (who also produced the track) for Motown singing group The Four Tops, who took the song to the Top Ten of the UK Pop Charts and to #11 in the US Pop Chart. The socially conscious single was a departure from the group's past recordings and produced a smoother sound than the raucous Norman Whitfield productions that belayed on The Temptations. The single features Miracles member Marv Tarplin on guitar and The Andantes adding in additional background vocals shouting out "Still water!". Singers Brenda Joyce Evans and Billie Rae Calvin, brought to Motown by Bobby Taylor (and soon to be part of Norman Whitfield's group The Undisputed Truth), also add backing vocals. The single became The Tops' first Top Ten R&B hit since 1967's "Bernadette". This song was noted for its repeated chord phrases, beginning with E-Flat Major, shifting to C Minor, then to B-Flat Major, before re to E-Flatt Major, over and over again, with any changes or alterations to the song's fade.

Still water

Ah, ah, ah
Never you mind if I
Don't tell strangers passing by
If I don't brag
If I don't brag or boast
Click my glass and say a toast
About my love for you
How it runs so deep and true
And yet it's so
'Cause don't you know, oh
Still waters run deep
Still waters run deep
Still waters run deep
Still waters run deep

Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
Walk with me
Take my hand

Walk with me
Take my hand
Whoa, whoa, whoa now
Still waters run deep
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Whoa, whoa, whoa now
Still waters run deep
