Al Green - Let's Stay Together

I, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is all right with me
'Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Since, since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue

Let's, let's stay together
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why, why some people break up
Then turn around and make up
I just can't see
You'd never do that to me (would you, baby)
Staying around you is all I see
(Here's what I want us to do)

(repeat to fade):
Let's, we oughta stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Been a while since i've last posted a song lyric. This last one is among my secret favourites, so secret i only realized it today, after Winamp random-played Tokyo Ska Paradise's cover right after Al Green's original version. And i also realized the tune had constantly been in my head for the past week or so. Well, that, and Wes Montgomery's version of Satin Doll.
Anyway, at the moment this is only one of the two songs i know by Al Green (the other one is Simply Beautiful, which i discovered via Arto Lindsay's wonderful cover). So somebody remind me to download anything available by the man next time i open WinMX.

(Also, i have to see Pulp Fiction again sometime soon. Haven't seen it in something like a year)
