The Greatest Medley Ever Told
Performed by Deloris & The Ronelles

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Started my life
In a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out
(Somebody threw out)
I knew the way it felt to always live in doubt
To be without the simple things
So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me
So I got a

Good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
I never lost one minute of sleep
Worrying about the way things might have been

I was a devil with a blue dress, blue dress, blue dress
I was a devil with a blue dress on
I was a whole

Sugar pie, honey bunch (sugar pie, honey bunch)
You know that I love you (love you)
I can't help myself
I love you and nobody else

Oh yeah, wait a minute Mr. Postman
Wait Mr. Postman
Mr. Postman, look and see (oh yeah)
If there's a letter in your bag for me
(Please, please Mr. Postman)
I’ve been waiting for a long, long time
Deliver the letter
The sooner the better

She wore an itsy bitsy
Teenie weenie
Yellow polka dot bikini

Stop!
In the name of love

But my momma told me
You better shop around

Do the hustle
Do the hustle

But it wasn’t enough, baby
Cause I needed cash
I needed
Money, money, money
Money
Money, money, money

I was a bad girl
Toot, toot, beep, beep
Talking about the sad girl
Toot, toot, freak out

Mr. Big Stuff
Who do you think you are
Mr. Big Stuff
You’re never gonna get my love

But he did
He got my coat
He got my love
He got my cousin pregnant
And when I tried to throw him out, baby
You know what he did
He whipped out this great big

Shotgun
Shoot him before he run now
Do the jerk baby
Do the jerk now

Hey, I had nowhere to run to baby
Nowhere to hide
I had nowhere to run to baby
I didn’t have nowhere to hide, until

Halleluiah, halleluiah
Halleluiah, halleluiah
Hallelu

Nothing you can say
Could tear me away
From my guy (my guy)
Nothing you could do
Cause I’m stuck like glue
To my guy (my guy, my guy)

Well he may not be a movie star
But when it comes to being happy
We are

There’s not a man today
Who can take me away from my guy
What did you say
There’s not a man today
Who can take me away from

I love him, I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him, wooh

I will follow him
Follow him wherever he may go
There isn’t an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep
Keep me away
Away from this love, why

Cause we are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing
We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody (well get up)
Get up everybody (well get up)
Get up everybody and sing
