Jermaine Jackson - You're Supposed To Keep Your Love For Me Lyrics

What are you doing out there baby,
Messin' 'round with all the guys,
What are you doing out there playing,
Aren't you supposed to be mine,
What are you doing out there baby,
That ain't the way it's supposed to be,
Because, you're, you're supposed to keep your love for me

What are you doing out there sugar,
Trying to bring my spirit down,
Because I've heard that you've been sneaking,
Around with every guy in town,
What are you doing out there baby,
You're acting like you're fancy free,
When, you're, you're supposed to keep your love for me
(So keep your love for me)
Da da da da da da da da da da da [4x]

Sooner or later I'm gonna leave you,
Though I've said this many times before,
And on the day you least expect it,
You'll find me walking out the door,
What are you doing out there baby,
I guess our love will never be,
Because, you, you don't wanna keep your love for me
(Say it one more time)
You, you don't wanna keep your love for me
(When all the time)
You're, you're supposed to keep your love for me
Da da da da da da da da da da da [till end]

  17. Gabriel D. Matthews II

    "You're Supposed To Keep Your Love For Me" was originally recorded in 1975, possibly for the aborted Do Unto Others album, and featured Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Jackie Jackson on background vocals. But when Jermaine's brothers left for Epic Records, this original version was shelved. Four years later, Stevie dug it out and remixed/overdubbed the track for Let's Get Serious and removed Michael and Jackie's vocals.

    Here's 2 words for you folks concerning this song..........Stevie Wonder. Producer......songwriter. .......musician........background vocalist........those were Stevie's contributions to this song. I loved Jermaine's performance on this record......but My God......he had a little assistance from a certified, Musical Master. Everything Stevie touches..............


    That's the truth...Stevie Wonder made it happen for Jermaine on this record.

    James Boyd

    Stevie Wonder originally wrote this for the Jackson 5 but revamped it for Jermaine Jackson solo album.

  21. daryl hunt

    This is a great song!

  22. ronald antoine


  23. joan Jones

    His daddy said he had the better voice of the bunch but Michael could dance and was the whole package.

    John Jackson


  24. Audrey Bowles

    Yes, Massimo, one of Jermaine's best songs from his first album, "Let's Get Serious"!  Produced by Stevie Wonder!

  25. Darrell Swinson

    Reminiscing on this favorite tune that I used to hear when I was a teenager in elementary school.

  26. Massimo D'Alessio of the best Jermaine'songs....


    One of my FAV of Stevie.

  27. littledrummerboy5902

    My favorite Jermaine Jackson tune. Thanks for posting the album version. How could one listen to this one without the harmonica solo. Great video to go along with the song.

  28. dcskfz

    Jermaine is really underrated, this is song is proof of that.

  29. littledrummerboy5902

    This has always been one of my favorites by Jermaine. Great song and wonderful video. Very informative. Thanks for sharing

  30. RandyThirdSun

    Excellent Video.

  31. Eileen Russell

    WOW I forgot how HANDSOME he used to be..... I always loved Jermaine, so sad that this entire really attractive family did NOT think they were. There is not enough room , time or space to talk about the talent which has spoken/ speaks for itself.

  32. George Rice

    this is a very beautiful song, although it has to do with one having an affair with someone else. Stevie at his best.Playing most instruments as well as background vocals.

  33. ThePoacherz

    I do too!
