Playing Catch Up – Love Is In Da Blog – Day 11

The category for Day 11 was for a love song from the year you were born #LoveIsInDaBlog.  I chose a song that was not only from 1966 but was number one on the charts the week of September 10 – 16, the week I was born and it stayed number one for the next two weeks. Gotta love The Supremes “You Can’t Hurry Love”!

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!

 

I need love, love to ease my mind
I need to find, find someone to call mine
But Mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes
But how many heartaches must I stand
Before I find a love to let me live again?
Right now the only thing that keeps me hangin’ on
When I feel my strength, yeah, is almost gone
I remember Mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
How long must I wait?
How much more can I take?
Before loneliness will cause my heart
Heart to break?
No, I can’t bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can’t go on
These precious words keeps me hangin’ on
I remember Mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes
No, love, love, don’t come easy
But I keep on waiting, anticipating
For that soft voice to talk to me at night
For some tender arms to hold me tight
I keep waiting, I keep on waiting
But it ain’t easy, it ain’t easy
But Mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
