Marvin Gaye (April 2, 1939 – April 1, 1984), born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr., was an American singer-songwriter and musician whose career spanned more than two decades. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he was the son of a storefront minister of a local Pentecostal church sect and grew up singing gospel in church revivals as a young child. Gaye branched out into secular music as a teenager, joining the doo-wop group The Marquees, after returning from an honorable discharge from the United States Air Force, before the group was hired by Harvey Fuqua to be Harvey & The Moonglows. Following the band’s separation in 1960, Gaye began working as a session drummer for the Detroit music label, Anna, before signing with Motown Records in 1961, adding an „e“ to his surname.

Marvin Gaye – Sunny Lyrics
Sunny, yesterdayMy heart was filled with rainSunny, you smiled at meAnd really eased the pain Oh, the dark days are doneAnd the bright days are hereMy sunny one shines so sincereOh sunny one, so true, I love you Sunny, thank youFor the sunshine bouquetSunny, thank youFor the love you’ve brought my way You gave to me your all and allNow I feel ten feet tallOh sunny one, so true, I love you Sunny, thank youFor the truth you’ve let me seeSunny, thank youFor the facts from A to Z My life was torn like wind blown sandThen a rock was formed when we held handsSunny one so true, I love you Sunny, thank youFor that smile upon your faceSunny, thank youFor that gleam that flows with grace You’re my spark of nature’s fireYou’re my sweet complete desireSunny one so true, I love you
Marvin Gaye – Save The Children Lyrics
I just want to ask a questionWho really cares?To save a world in despairWho really cares? There’ll come a timeWhen the world won’t be singin’Flowers won’t growBells won’t be ringin‘ Who really cares?Who’s willing to tryTo save a worldThat’s destined to die When I look at the worldIt fills me with sorrowLittle children todayAre really gonna suffer tomorrow Oh what a shameSuch a bad way to liveAll who is to blameWe can’t stop livin‘ Live, live for lifeBut let live everybodyLive life for the childrenOh, for the children You seeLet’s let’s save the childrenLet’s let’s save all the childrenSave the babiesSave the babiesAnd if you wanna loveYou got love Save the babies[Incomprehensible] feelings[Incomprehensible] feelingsYou will save the babiesAll of the children But who really caresWho’s willing to tryYes, to save a worldYea, save our sweet worldSave a world that is destined to die Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, laOh, oh dig it everybody
Da fehlt die zweite Strophe. Das was die Frau singt…
Super Übersetzung! (wenn man vergleicht, was man da auf anderen Seiten zu lesen bekommt)
Ich habe das beim casual listening immer als „Komm, wir legen Marvin Gaye auf und…“ verstanden, aber so ist es natürlich richtiger. 🙂
