Emotions, The - Walking The Line Lyrics

Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo
Ba Dee Ah Dee Ah Dee Ah
Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo
Ba Dee Ah Dee Ah Dee Ah
Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo
Ba Dee Ah Dee Ah Dee Ah

You're walking the line
You turned my life around
Say you will and then you won't
Say you do and then you don't
Take my love
Take my love

Cherish your love (you know I do)
In you it can be found
Say you will and then you won't
Say you do and then you don't
Take my love Take my love

Oh Ooh Oh Oh
Walking the line with my love
Oh...Say you will; then you won't
Say you do; then you don't
Take my love
Take my love

Just to pass the time
Fill these arms of mine
Say you will this time
To prepare for you
Love and kisses seems to do
Say you will this time
This time...

The sunshine is you
The brightest light around
Say you will and then you won't
Say you do and then you don't
Take my love Take my love

Oh Ooh Oh Oh
Walking the line with my love
Oh, Say you will; then you won't
Say you do; then you don't
Take my love Take my love

Walking the line
Say you will; then you won't
Say you do; then you don't
Love, love...

Walking, walking, walking
Walking the line
Walking, walking, walking

Oh, Say you will then you won't
Say you do and then you don't

I will take you, baby, if I really want your love...

Walking, walking, walking
Walking the line
Walking, walking, walking

    gwendolyn smith

    Yes On the 3, for the nations!!! their music is timeless!🔥❤️

  66. D. C.

    This is what we call "chirpin"!! Yeah, the entire '70s saw so much talent--- but there is something really special about the music of the latter '70s...as disco was waning and the '80s approached. I think it lasted until about '83 and then electronic/computerized music started taking over and R&B shifted....not for the better.

    Delondia Cobbs

    The Emotions love them love them all time Favorite ladies group three Beautiful Sisters ❤

  67. Dorene Yelvie

    Sharr Pracier never!!!!


    @Patricia Davis Yes. Pure perfection. Heavenly.

  89. Sharr Pracier

    Sounds like Maurice, clear and precise...he sound as if he toned his powerful voice down just enough to bring what only he could....PERFECTION and that...to everything he did.
    l love the way he would never try to out shine another artist or musicians.
    he didn't have too..he was the Shine💕 effortlessly

    Michael Harper

    You are right, that is Maurice.......he's also playing drums on this track.....

    Basstribes mag

    For clarity to Michael Harper & fans who love this song. I'm the bassist on this song. by the name of Charlie Chuckaluck Hosch. Maurice White of coarse is the Producer on this song ,but Maurice is not playing drums on this song. The drummer on this song is from Chicago like me by the name Donzell Davis.We had awesome moments working with Maurice White on the sunbeam album in the studio and the great world tours we did with The Emotions. Which I still perform with from time to time. Cheers!


    You can definitely hear Maurice's touch on this. EWF and the Emotions were great together.


    @Basstribes mag Sweet bro! What other tracks did you play on the album?

  90. 1goldbaby

    don't quite remember this one....
