Jackson 5 Lyrics

I'll Be There Lyrics
[Verse:]
You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I'll be there (I'll be there)

I'll reach out my hand to you, I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I'll be there (I'll be there)


[Chorus:]
And Ooohh
I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on (Holding on, Holding on)
Yes I will, yes I will

[Verse:]
Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)
I'll be there to protect you (Yeah baby) with an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name and I'll be there (I'll be there)

[Chorus:]
And Ooohh
I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on (Holding on, Holding on)
Yes I will, yes I will

If you should ever find someone new, I know he'd better be good to you
'Cos if he doesn't, I'll be there ( I'll be there)


Don't you know, baby, yeah yeah
I'll be there, I'll be there, just call my name, I'll be there

(Just look over your shoulders, honey (ooh)

I'll be there, I'll be there, whenever you need me, I'll be there
Don't you know, baby, yeah yeah

I'll be there
(La La La La Da Da Da)
I'll be there
(La La La Da Da Da Da)
Just call my name, I'll be there...
(Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooooh)
