Jouw kostbare liefde

Blindelingse Greep nr. 63 in de RG-Collectie levert het album op vernoemd naar het onmisbare gekozen nummer, Jerry Butler and the Impressions. Curtis Mayfield moest nog apart terecht beroemd worden.

Your precious love
Means more to me
Than any love could ever be
For when I wanted you
I was so lonely and so blue
For that’s what love will do

And darling, I’m
(I’m so surprised)
Oh, when I first realized
(I realized)
That a-you were fooling me

And darling
(Whoa-ooh)
They say that our love won’t grow
But I just wanna tell them
(Ooo-ooo-ooo)
That they don’t know-oh-ho

For as long
As you’re in love with me
Our love will grow wider
Deeper than any sea

And of all the things that I want
In this whole wide world
Is just for you to say
That you’ll be my girl

And woo-ooo-ooo
(Wanting you)
Wanting you
(Oh-ooh, I’m lonely and blue)
I’m so-whoa, lonely
(That’s what love will do)


For your precious love, Jerry Butler & the Impressions, 1958
