Johnny Nash - Cupid Lyrics




Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow flow
Straight to my lover's heart for me
No, nobody else but me hey hey hey
Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Now listen! I don't want to bother you but I'm in distress
There's danger of me losing all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn't know I exist
Ah and this you can fix so...

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow flow
Straight to my lover's heart for me
No, nobody else but me hey hey hey
Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Now Cupid if your arrow makes her love strong for me
I swear I'm gonna love her until eternity
I know that tween the both of us her heart we can steal
Cupid help me if you will so...

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow flow
Straight to my lover's heart for me
No, nobody else but me hey hey hey
Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Hey Cupid Cupid I'm calling
Don't you hear me I'm calling you

  11. Harry S. Anchan

    Blows the Sam Cooke version out of the water!. Released on October 18, 1969, reaching # 39 on January 24, 1970. Fabulous memories of 1969. Should have been in the Top 10, at least.

    monica bella

    You've got a very good taste!

    monica bella

    @Degree7 YES!

  12. Emma Schneider

    This version without a doubt birthed Amy Winehouse's ska cover.

    I love the Sam Cook version but this has a very unique spin on it, Johnny made it his own. Love it

  17. Projectile

    Michael Spezio

  19. TheWeekend

    Great tune

  20. Annika Haagen

    ❤❤❤❤

  21. Dirk Pehrke

    Would like to know if Amy Winehouse knew this version or if it was her idea to make a reggae version of Sam Cook's Cupid without knowing that this version exists. She knew a lot about reggae and ska anyway. But the instrumentation on her version is very similar.

    doowoppyify

    I have just heard this version for the very first time and I have no doubt Amy was covering or being compleately influenced by this song.

    kelpiedog74

    Amy's is a direct cover of Johnny Nash's version. Listen to this straight after Amy's beautiful rendition and you can tell. I love them all!

    monica bella

    Amy's dad surely introduced her to only THIS ONE ! Cause it's the best!

  22. oz oz

    whatever happened to Johnny Nash, I saw him in Talk of the Town in Plymouth early 70s, now Sam Cooke seems to be doing all his songs, by the way he was good, totally underated, loved Reggae

  23. Richard Jones

    Johnny had a super voice and a nice character. Proud to have served him as he bought his girl a pair of dungarees way back, circa 1974

    Azza's Escapade

    That's awesome.

    Mike Pritchard

    Wish I could have met him, but I'm from the north in the UK, so not much chance, still love his music.

    Karl Blanchette

    Dungarees!
    I want to write a song about growing up in the 70z, 'Dungarees n Cheerios',

  24. Tim Grzonkowski

    Otis and Johnny... nice covers... can't decide which i like more

    Hayley Mizon

    Tim G sam cooke dick

  25. empresstashaii

    Memories of my  Dad.................miss you so much......

  26. Grace Ashie

  27. Yonah Music Emporium

  31. Rigadon2013

    Great version wish I had a time machine

  32. Bun Bee

    Amazing song!!

  33. muzikman3955

    This was originally the flip side of "Hold Me Tight" which came out in the fall of '68. I have the 45 : )

  34. Olaf Mccaw

    Great song, great singer!

  35. Jim Jasion

    This was being played as early as 1968, early 1969. I remember listening to this as a senior in High School. Little did I know that I was listening to Reggae.

  36. bumkumcsa

    So it happened to me :)))

  37. Emmanuel Yartey

    love it. Oh Johnny Nash's Cupid. Fantastic.

  38. walshamite

    Yes, that IS saying a lot. Sam wrote it, I knew Jonny's version first. His reggae rhythym adds some energy; Amy Winehouse used it likewise on her rather slurred cover - both lacked Sam's tenderness; Sam's beautiful voice was in a different universe to mere ordinary singers.

  39. SylarGrimm

    Heard this on Blackpool with David Tennant... glad i found the version he was singing... thx for uploading.

  40. chilliconcarnie1
