​You Must Believe Me

This song is by The Impressions and appears on the album People Get Ready (1965).

You must belie-ie-ieve me
No matter what the people might say
You must belie-ie-ieve me
Darling, it just didn't happen that way
No, no, it just didn't happen that way

You've come home with somethin' on your mind
Darlin', tell me, why are you cryin'
You say be serious, no time for fun
While tryin' to tell me somethin' that I've done
The things you've heard couldn't be denied
But before your opinion, listen to my side

And you must belie-ie-ieve me
No matter what the people might say
You must belie-ie-ieve me
Darling, it just didn't happen that way
No, no, it just didn't happen that way

Woah it's alright
Woah it's alright

Girl you're wrong to believe what was said
For you see nothing could ever be that bad
Though the talk is now all over town
Darling you know I'd never put you down
True, her and me we're at the party as guests
There's nothing else to say about whom I love best

And you must belie-ie-ieve me
No matter what the people might say
You must belie-ie-ieve me
Darling, it just didn't happen that way
No, no, it just didn't happen that way

Woah it's alright
Woah it's alright
Woah it's alright
Woah it's alright
