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

Ah, let me show you
Let me show you the way to go

I don't know everything
But there's something I do know (I know, I know)
I've read and heard a lot
And now I'm ready to show

That we can come together
And think like one
Come together, now
Live together underneath the sun
Please, please let me show you

Let me show you, let me show you the way to go
Follow me my friend
Let me show you, come on, let me show you the way to go

Just put your trust in me
I'll try not to let you down (Let you down, let you down)
This job is hard to do
But all of us can wear this crown

'Cause we can help each other to overcome
We can do it, we can do it, now
Rejoice everybody
And get the job done
Please, please, please just let me show you

Let me show you, let me show you the way to go
Follow me my friend, hey, hey, hey
Let me show you, come on, let me show you the way to go
Please follow me, now

That we can help each other to overcome
we can do it, we can do it, now
Live together underneath the sun
Please, please, please just let me show you

(Let me show you, let me show you the way to go)
I swear I'll never let you down, hey, hey
(Let me show you) Come on (Let me show you the way to go)
We can do it, we can do it, we can do it, now
(Let me show you, let me show you the way to go)
Let me, let me, let me, just let me, let me show you know
(Let me show you) Come on (Let me show you the way to go)
(Let me show you, let me show you the way to go)
I swear I'll never let you down
(Let me show you, let me show you the way to go)
Come on, come on, come on, oh
(Let me show you, let me show you the way to go)
Let me, let me, let me show you
(Let me show you you, let me show you the way to go)
(Follow me, follow me)
Let me, let me, let me, let me, let me, let me show you
Let me show you
I'll never let you down, never let you down, never let you down
Put your hand in mine
We can do it, we can do it, we can work it out, work it out
Work it, work it, work it out
And get on top of the world
Let me show you, let me show you, let me show, yeah
Let me, let me, let me, let me, let me, let me show you
(Let me show you, let me show you the way to go)
(Follow me, follow me)
