Liefde die niet dagelijks aan de deur klopt

Martha and the Vandellas, nota bene de artisten van mijn allereerste Motownplaatje (Dancing in the street, 1964), en het embarras du choix maakt dat zij buiten de Zwarte Lijst vallen. Als je de bombast van de Turners kent en dan kennismaakt met dit b-kantje ben je verloren…

I broke your heart
And I made you blue
Instead of hurting back
You said “I love you”
That very day you won my heart
And my love for you shall never part

You have such an understanding way
And I appreciate you believe what I say
‘Cause a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

Although I treated you bad from the start
Without question you gave me your heart
No, a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

It’s the little things you do
That mean so much
So very, very much
(Consideration) I never knew
That is, until I met you
Believe me

You made my life complete
And I know our love with all of my mind
You can believe me it’s gonna hold on tight
‘Cause a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

No, a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

Parlando:

Although I treated you bad from the start
Without question you gave me your heart
No, a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

I broke your heart
And I made you so blue
Instead of hurting back
You said “Darling, I love you”

No, a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday


A love like yours (don’t come knocking everyday), 1963
