Noted in November – 2018 – Song Lyric Sunday – Soul

Helen’s theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday is “Soul.”

My pick is “Lady Soul” by the Temptations.

Lady Soul
Oh
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
My lady soul
Lying here beside you
Close as we can be
I know what this leads to
I know what you need, yeah
I’m ready to surrender, my love
Lay it all in your hands
Give you my forever
Everything I am
‘Cause you are my, my, my, my lady soul
You warm my heart
When I grow cold
Oh you are my, my, my, my lady soul
You are my life
You make me whole
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
My lady soul
I feel it in your heartbeat
Hear it in your crys
This is where our hearts meet
I see it in your eyes
I’ve waited for this moment, my love
It’s a dream come alive
Heaven must have sent me
An angel of the night
‘Cause you are my, my, my, my lady soul
You warm my heart
When I grow cold
‘Cause you are my, you’re my, you’re my, my lady soul
You’re my, my lady soul, you’re my lady soul
You are my life
You make me whole
I always knew we’d end up together
Right from the very start
And I believe we’ll make it forever
It’s written right here in my heart
Oh yeah, ay, ho
You’re my, you’re my, my lady soul
You warm my heart
When I grow cold
Oh you are my, my, my, my lady soul
You are my life
You make me whole
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo
My lady soul, hoo
My, my
My, my
You’re my, you’re my (my, my) my lady soul
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo (my, my)
Oh wo oh wo oh wo oh wo (my, my)
My, my, my, my, my, my, my
My lady soul

My favorite part of the song is:

“I always knew we’d end up together
right from the very start
and I believe we’ll make it forever
It’s written right here in my heart.”

cos I’m just a sappy romantic and this is the kind of thing that makes me think of my husband.

I’ve seen the Temptations a couple of times.  The first time was about 100 years ago (well maybe in the mid-’70’s) and I saw them at the Circle Star theater.  That was such a fun venue because the stage turned so every seat was a good one (except when their back was to you – LOL).  They claimed that none of the over 3,000 seats was more than 50 feet from the stage.  The stage made a complete turn every eight minutes.  Some of the performers didn’t like it though because they said the moving stage gave them motion sickness.   

We saw the Temptations again last year at the Mountain Winery.  Only one of the originals (Otis Williams) was still performing but they sounded and looked great anyway.

All movements still in sync and they did perform “Lady Soul” that night.  We were side stage and a little farther back than we usually sit but it was still a fun night.  The Four Tops were there as well so we had a full night of Motown soul.  We had our friend, Mike, with us and it was his first experience at the Mountain Winery.  He’s a big Motown lover. 

Have a listen:

Make sure to stop by the other participants in the SLS hit parade.  Happy singing Sunday to you.

  3. I love that the line makes you think of your husband, Janet. Nothing wrong at all with being “sappy.” Actually, our world could use more of that. I’ve seen the Temptations live…they’re awesome!
