Got To Be There Lyrics by Michael Jackson


Michael Jackson Lyrics

Got To Be There Lyrics
Got to be there (got to be there)
Got to be there in the morning
When she says hello to the world
Got to be there (got to be there)
Got to be there bring her good times
And show her that she's my girl
Ooh what a feeling there'll be
The moment I know she loves me
Cause when I look in her eyes


I realize
I need her sharing the world beside me
So I got to be there (got to be there)
Got to be there in the morning
And welcome her into my world
And show her that she's my girl
When she says hello world (got to be there) (got to be there)
I need her sharing the world beside me
That's why I got to be there (got to be there)
Got to be there where it all begins
And that's everywhere she goes
I got to be there so she knows
That when she's with me

Shes home (ooo shes home) (ooo shes home) yea
(Got to be there) got to be there, got to be there
(Got to be there) got to be there, got to be there
(Got to be there) ooh baby, baby, got to be there, got to be there
(Got to be there) got to be there, got to be there
(Got to be there) ooh, got to be there, got to be there
(Got to be there) ooh, got to be there, got to be there
