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 it had 4 on the floor, girl
A hundred twenty it would do

And I remember Marvin Gaye, singin'
"What's Goin' On"

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

And I remember Marvin Gaye, singin'
"What's Goin' On"
Don't play with my love oh
And I remember Marvin Gaye, singin'
"What's Goin' On"

They used to have sweet music in the park
Lord up at Monterey straight down to the Melody Bar
You used to wear girl, a them 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 oh
I remember Otis Redding
Sittin' at the Dock of the Bay
But then he went away
And I remember Sam Cooke ya'll
So Bring It On Home To Me
From your love I can't be free
I remember Elvis Presley
And them Blue Suede Shoes
Lord they gave me the blues
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin' yeah
"Let's Get It On"
