Ed Sheeran - Tribute To Stevie Wonder (Live) Lyrics

Everybody say yeah (yeah!)
Say yeah! (yeah!)
Everybody say yeah (yeah!)
Say yeah! (yeah!)
Say yeah! (yeah!)
Say yeah! (yeah!)
Just a little bit of sou-ou-ou-oul (sou-ou-ou-oul)
Just a little bit of sou-ou-ou-oul (sou-ou-ou-oul)
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder

Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Well I know
Everybody had a good time
Now if you want me to,
if you want me to
I’m gonna swing the song, yeah
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder

Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Clap your hands just a little bit louder
Say yeah! (yeah!)
Say yeah! (yeah!)
Say yeah! (yeah!)

[Ed Sheeran:]
Everyone’s feeling pretty
It’s hotter than July
Though the world’s full of problems
They couldn’t touch us even if they tried

From the park I hear rhythms
Marley’s hot on the box
Tonight there will be a party
On the corner at the end of the block

[Ed Sheeran:]
Didn’t know you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
I bet nobody ever told you that you
would be jammin’ and jammin’ and jammin’, jam on

[Ed Sheeran:]
They want us to join their fighting
But our answer today
Is to let all our worries
Like the breeze through our fingers slip way

Peace has come to Zimbabwe
Third World’s right on the one
Now’s the time for celebration
‘Cause we’ve only just begun
Didn’t know you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
I bet nobody ever told you that you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
Didn’t know you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
would be jammin’ and jammin’ and jammin’
would be jammin’ and jammin’ and jammin’, jam on

[Gary Clark Jr.:]
People keep on learnin’
Soldiers keep on warrin’


[Gary Clark Jr.:]
Keep on turnin’
‘Cause it won’t to be too long

Powers keep on lyin’
While your people keep on dyin’
World keep on turnin’
‘Cause it won’t be too long

[Beyoncé & Gary Clark Jr.:]
I’m so darn glad he let me try it again
‘Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then
keep on tryin’ till I reach my highest ground
I’m so darn glad he let me try it again
‘Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then
keep on tryin’ till I reach my highest ground

C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon

  26. Jos Waltmans

    One of the best covers I have heard and seen

  27. Miss Melody

    Most people should not even bother trying to cover Stevie. But, I actually love this version! Great job!

  28. Chilling Guy

    I was born in Lil' Rock,
    Had a childhood sweetheart,
    We were always hand in hand.

    I was hightop shoes and shirt tails,
    Suzy was in pig tails,
    I know I loved her even then.

    You know my papa disapproved it,
    My mama boohooed it,
    But I told them time and time again,
    "Don't you know I was made to love her,
    Built a world all around her"
    Yah! Hey, hey, hey.

    She's been my inspiration,
    Showed appreciation
    For the love I gave her through the years.

    Like a sweet magnolia tree
    My love blossmed tenderly,
    My life grew sweeter through the years.

    I know that my baby loves me,
    My baby needs me,
    That's why we made it through the years.

    I was made to love her,
    Worship and adore her,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    All through thick and thin
    Our love just won't end,
    'Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!

    My baby loves me,
    My baby needs me,
    And I know I ain't going nowhere.

    I was knee high to a chicken
    When that love bug bit me,
    I had the fever with each passing year.

    Oh, even if the mountain tumbles,
    If this whole world crumbles,
    By her side I'll still be standing there.

    'Cause I was made to love her,
    I was made to live for her, yeah!

    Ah, I was made to love her,
    Built my world all around her,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    Oo baby, I was made to please her,
    You know Stevie ain't gonna leave her, no,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    Oo wee baby, my baby loves me,
    My baby needs me,
    Hey, hey, hey.

    OO my baby loves me....

  29. MrZee
