The Jackson 5 - Mama's Pearl

* Produced by The Corporation
* Composed by Berry Gordy, Jr./Alphonso Mizell/Freddie Perren/Deke Richards

Recorded by the Jackon 5 for their Third Album, issued in September 1970 in the US and February 1971 in the UK.

The single has a rarer mix, slightly different to the album version, most noticeable on Tito's opening backing vocals - this mix would have been included on the album, had it been completed in time.

It broke the group's run of no.1's in the US; peaked no.2 on both charts, prevented from topping the Hot 100 by One Bad Apple - performed in the classic Jackson 5 style by the Osmonds.

It featured on ''The Rare Pearl' episode of the new Jackson 5 cartoon in 1971.

Versions with alternate vocal takes featured on the Jackson 5's 1986 compilation, Anthology, and on The Jacksons Story compilation in 2004 - the latter featured the mono version 'folded' back into the stereo version.


Mama's Pearl - Lyrics

You send cold chills up and down my spine
We kiss for thrill then you draw the line, oh baby
íCause your mama told you that love ainít right
But donít you know good loviní is the spice of life, yeah

Mamaís pearl
Let down those curls
Wonít you give my love a whirl
Find what you been missiní
Ooh ooh, now baby, goody girl
Let down those curls
Let me give your heart a twirl
Donít keep me wishiní

You want my loviní
Yes, you do, do, do
(Yes you do, I know that you do)
You know my loviní is true, true, true
Now baby
But your conscience tells you that love is wrong
But just a little loviní never hurt no one

Mamaís pearl
Let down those curls
Wonít you give my love a whirl
Find what you been missiní
Ooh ooh, now baby, goody girl
Let down those curls
Let me give your heart a twirl
Donít keep me wishiní

Girl donít be afraid
Oh weíve got the first step made
Oh, the rest is up to you
Here is what to do
Let yourself go
let yourself just oo, now now no
Let your loviní go, now, now, now
Just give it to me
íCause Iíve got what you need
Got what you need

Letís fall in love
Letís fall in love
And find out what youíre missiní

Goody girl let down your curls
Let me give your heart a twirl
Why donít you give my love a whirl
Girl, donít be afraid
Oh, weíve got the first step made
Ooh, just give in, just give in to me
íCause I got what you need
Got what you need
Letís fall in love
Letís fall in love
Let yourself go
