The Jackson 5 Show You The Way To Go Lyrics

Last updated: 07/06/2014 03:36:55 PM

Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go

I don't know everything
But there's something I do know
(I know, I know)
I've read and heard a lot
And now I'm ready to show
That we can come together
And think like one

Come together now
Live together underneath the sun
Please, please let me show you
Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go

Follow me, my friend
Let me show you, come on
Let me show you the way to go

Just put your trust in me
I'll try not to let you down
(Let you down, let you down)
The job is hard to do
But only we can work this out
'Cause we can help each other to overcome
We can do it
We can do it now
Rejoice everybody
And get the job done

Please, please, please
Just let me show you
Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go
I swear
I'll never let you down
Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go
Let me, let me, let me
Just let me, let me show you now

Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go
follow me, follow me
Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go
I swear
I'll never let you down

Let me, let me, let me
let me, let me, let me show you...

Humm, let me show you
never let you down
never let you down
I'll never let you down

Put your hand in mine
We can do it
We can do it
we can work it out
work it out, work it, work it, work it out


Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go
(follow me, follow me)
Let me show you
Let me show you the way to go
(follow me, follow me)

Correction... | Reviewer: Debi | 7/7/14

I love this song... it's one of my favorites, but then being a lifelong J5/The Jacksons/MJ fan, there's really not many of their songs that I don't love. But I'm here for a completely different reason-on EVERY single lyric site, there's a small bit incorrect section of lyrics, but it's me INSANE:
"JUST PUT YOUR TRUST IN ME
I'LL TRY NOT TO LET YOU DOWN
(LET YOU DOWN, LET YOU DOWN)
THIS JOB IS HARD TO DO
BUT ONLY WE CAN WEAR THIS CROWN
(not "work it out" as suggested by every lyric for I've looked this song up on).
First, not to overstate the obvious but "down" & "crown" rhyme-right? Why yes they do! Very good... next, & just in vase there's someone out there that still doesn't get it, he's basically saying, though it'll be difficult, WE have a tall assigned to us... as in "Heavy is the head that wears the crown".
So that's it boys & girls- hope I've helped enlighten some, while others will remain stick in blissful ignorance I'm sure. No matter- I'm already singing the correct lyrics!

MY FAVORITE SONG | Reviewer: LUV4MIKE | 7/13/10

I think that it is a great song. It brings back .so many memories. I could still remember dancing in my livingroom to this song when I was eleven years old. Out id all the songs the Jacksons made this song was my favorite. And now every time I listen to this song,I think about Michael and it makes me so sad because I miss him so much.

LOVE IT!!! | Reviewer: m. | 6/14/10

I heard it for the first time accidentally when I was playing with my tape recording at age 12. I found it on the radio and it impressed me, the vocals by Michael were compelling. I reminded myself about this song a year ago and now it is one of my favourite songs by Michael Jackson. Amazing that I remembered that song for eleven years 'till I heard it again!

"Show you the way to go" | Reviewer: pamela | 8/20/09

Well i am gonna start by saying a DJ played this particular song on a boatride on Aug. 2,2009 on the circle line and the crowd went ballistic. The way he mixed it was just awesome, and of course the sound system made all the diff. Ever since i heard it played that way, i re- fell in love with this song. Now its getting radio airplay and it just sounds so good. I'm still having a hard time believeing he is dead. I just don't wanna come to grips with this. His music will always be played in my household, u can believe this. I love you Michael

Love this Song | Reviewer: MIKO | 8/11/09

I remember this song when it first came out. It was during the time when the Jacksons had left Motown and were trying to find their way. I always loved this song but now that Michael is gone, it is as if I am listening to this song and other Jackson songs through new ears.

Michael's vocals are amazing! | Reviewer: SVB | 7/6/09

Show You The Way To Go is one of the best Jackson 5 songs ever made! The bass is amazing, the lyrics are very cute and comforting, and MJ's vocals are fantastic in this song! His adlibbing is just adorable. This song never got as popular as it should've but it's my favorite next to Never Can Say Goodbye. It's still very hard rapping my finger around the fact that Michael is no longer living. He was musical hero and just a wonderful person. He will live forever spiritually and in his music. God Bless Michael Jackson!

the G.O.A.T.!!! | Reviewer: Mark Tarrant | 1/13/09

I first heard this song when i was 10 years old in 1976. it was the first song i heard after learning my uncle william (my father's younger brother of 5 years) was killed in a motorcycle accident in birmingham al on dec 3rd of 76. it was the first time i had seen my father cry. i played this song in my truck everyday while going back & forth to long island jewish hospital, then jamaica hospital, then to dry harbour nursing facility in queens,ny during a six month stretch after my wife suffered a massive brain hemorrage during her preganecy & spented the next six months in rehab. She's lost the use of the left side of her body, but after what she had been through, & almost losing her,(she spented 2 1/2 weeks in an indused coma after surgery)that's not such a bad thing. So with all of that, & the fact that i play this song at least once every TWO days, i simply think in terms of a song.... With the harmonies of the jacksons, the beautiful mesh of those seawinds & michael's lead vocals. it's the GREATEST OF ALL TIME!. Oh, as for the baby... our beautiful Olivia grace is as fun as any three year old, & with our eight year old samantha paige, we couldn't be any more grateful to be alive & have each other. And they ALL love show you the way to go. the G.O.A.T.!.
