Lyrics

  • Jackson Five: Oooh, Oooh-Oooh-Oooh, Oooh, Oooh-Oooh-Oooh,
  • Mama, oh mama, I found that girl
  • Mama, oh mama, I found that girl
  • Jermaine: Mama, blind for me now
  • Is a new sensation
  • Just like, you said it would be
  • With the right situation
  • Now love has a meaning
  • And I...have a goal
  • This feeling inside me now
  • May chance to be a 100 years old
  • Now I understand
  • J5: I understand
  • Jermaine: What it is to be a man
  • J5:To be a man
  • Jermaine: The way you explained it to me that day,
  • You said only the right girl
  • Can make me feel this way
  • Well mama, I think I found that girl
  • J5: I found that girl
  • Jermaine: Yeah, yeah
  • Mama, I think I found that girl
  • J5: I found that girl
  • Jermaine: Oooh, mama, she's that beautiful dream
  • That I dream each night,
  • She's that hurdle of
  • On those wings, of their flight
  • She's those words left,
  • When there's no more to say
  • She's my sunshine
  • At the end, of a perfect day
  • Jermaine: All this lets me find
  • J5: Let's me find
  • Jermaine: A reason to be alive
  • J5: To be alive
  • Jermaine: That day, when you saw me upon your knee,
  • You said only the right girl can be all these things
  • Jermaine: Mama, I think I found that girl
  • J5: I found that girl
  • Jermaine: Mama, I think I found that girl
  • J5: I found that girl
  • Jermaine: You said son, go on and search around,
  • There's a good girl, who's out there, to be found
  • Jermaine: And Mama, I think I found that girl
  • J5: I found that girl
  • Jermaine: Yeah, yeah mama, I think I found that girl
