04/14/16 - NNHS Newsletter - Let's Stay Together

“Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like
and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone
would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say
good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.”

- Snoopy - as quoted by Charles M. Schulz
(26 Nov 1922 - 12 Feb 2000)

Let's Stay Together

Written and Recorded by Al Green, 1972
(b. 13 Apr 1946)

I'm, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is alright with me
'Cause you make me feel, so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Me sayin' since, baby, since we've been together
Ooo, loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me, be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue
Ooo baby

Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Oooo oooo ooo ooo, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up
Oh, and turn around and make up
I just can't seeeeeeeee
You'd never do that to me
(Would you baby)
'Cause being around you is all I see
It's why I want us to

Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
