Artiestinformatie


Begonnen als de Jackson Five in 1969 onder het Motown verhuisde de broers in 1976 naar het Epic label en Jermaine bleef achter bij Motown. Nu heette het viertal The Jacksons en scoorde Michael, Marlon, Randy en Tito grote hits met Shake Your Body, Blame It On The Boogie en Torture. Can You Feel It uit 1981 was hun grootste hit en kwam tot nummer 2 in de Nederlandse Top 40. In 1989 scoorde The Jacksons hun laatste hit met Nothin' (That Compares 2 U). Michael maakte toen geen deel meer uit. Sinds Michael's overlijden in 2009 treden de broers soms nog op.

Songtekst

You went to school to learn girl
things you never knew before
like "I" before "E" except after "C"
and why 2 plus 2 makes 4
now, now, now
I'm gonna teach you, teach you, teach you
all about love girl, all about love
sit yourself down, take a seat
all you gotta do is repeat after me

A B C , It's easy as
1 2 3 , or simple as
do re mi, A B C, 1 2 3
baby you and me girl (x2)

Come on and love me just a little bit
I'm gonna teach you how to sing it out
come on, come on, come on
let me tell you what it's all about
reading, writing, arithmetic
are the branches of the learning tree
but without the roots of love everyday girl
your education ain't complete
teacher's gonna show you (she's gonna show you)
how to get an "A" (na, na, na, na, na ,na)
how to spell "me", "you",
add the two
listen to me baby that's all you got to do

Oh,
A B C , It's easy as
1 2 3 , or simple as
do re mi, A B C, 1 2 3
baby you and me girl

A B C it's easy, it's like counting up to 3
singing simple melodies
that's how easy love can be
singing simple melodies
1 2 3 baby you and me

Sit down girl, I think I love ya'
No, get up girl, show me what you can do
Shake it, shake it baby, come on now
Shake it, shake it baby, oooh, oooh
Shake it, shake it baby, yeah
1 2 3 baby, oooh oooh
A B C baby, ah, ah
do re mi baby, wow
that's how easy love can be
A B C it's easy, it's like counting up to 3
singing simple melodies
that's how easy love can be
teacher's gonna teach you how to
sing it out, sing it out,
sing it out baby
