Northern Soul: The Three Degrees

Ze bestaan sinds 1963, slechts een lid van het trio zou als uit de begintijd kunnen gelden (Helen Scott), hoewel ook zij niet van het allereerste uur is.
Ze komen uit Philadelphia maar de Phillysoul die hen beroemd maakte was ver weg in 1966. Dit kan zonder problemen op de Northern Floor. Nog vroeger dan een ander vroeg nummer van hen dat eerder is langsgekomen.

Tales are true
I wish I knew
Before I gave my heart
To one like you
I should have played it smart
I just walk away
But when you kissed me
I thought you missed me

Tales are true
I found that you were the cheating kind
While all the time
I was true to you
I loved you every day
While I came home to hear them say

Ain’t that true, girl?
He found a new girl
We know you’re blue now
You’ll get over him somehow

Ooh ooh ooh

Tales are true
I’m gonna break away from you
It’s gonna take some time
For me to find
Another boy like you
Who finally one that’s true
I’ll be dating
Watch him waiting

Ain’t that true, girl?
He found a new girl
We know you’re blue now
You’ll get over him somehow

Ooh ooh ooh

Tales are true
I wish I knew
Before I gave my heart
To one like you
I should have played it smart
I just walk away
But when you kissed me
I thought you missed me

Tales are true
I found that you were the cheating kind
While all the time I was true to you
I loved you every day
While I came home to hear them say

Ain’t that true, girl?
He found a new girl
We know you’re blue now
You’ll get over him somehow


Tales are true
