Spinners, The - You Made A Promise To Me Lyrics




To whom it may concern, dig it
Each time we love we learn how to be sure
Knowing is trusting, these were your famous lines
"Don't live a life of lying"

I gave you all my time, dig it and in return I find
One hopeful dream that tends to wonder
Hanging beyond the cloud
You spoke these words out loud

You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Eo nide undri my
You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Then you walked out, left me in doubt

What makes you think it's right
To play around in spite of what I say
You just defy me, did you trade love for fame
The shrew cannot be tamed

My love for you is strained
Your love has seemed to change
Just like the bee, roses attracts you
They lead you on your way when flowers fade away

You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Eo nide undri my
You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Then you walked out, left me in doubt

You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Eo nide undri my
You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Eo nide undri my

You made a promise to me, you'll never go
(Go)
Eo nide undri my

  12. kevin harrison

    I was such a spinners fiend , i used 2 do odd jobs around my hood just so i could buy this album. wish i could go back & do it all over again. Fantastic song , bobbie smith delivers.

  13. Chiffon Smith

    👄Yess"❤

  14. Glemn Robinson

    i love that line. i dont know what language it is

    shells500tutubo

    Italian. One of them had an Italian wife. Io non andrai mai means I will never go.

  15. clubtough

    Even though it wasn't a hit, beautiful ballad. They should have translated the Italian phrase on the album though.

  16. Roy Sanders

    Timothy, it's Io non andre mai, which is an Italian phrase that means "I will never go." Joseph B. Jefferson's wife Rose, who is Italian, came up with the phrase for the song. I wonder why it was not a hit?

    Spook Killskillz

    Roy Sanders andare...not andre

    Clarence Wright

    Roy Sanders THANK U MR. ROY. I WAS JUST WONDERING TO MYSELF. WHAT ATE THEY SAYING. A VERY BEAUTIFUL SONG INDEED. I THINK THIS SONG WAS JUST FOR THERE ALBUM. I DON'T THINK THEY RELEASED IT AS A RECORD. SO THAT MAY BE ONE OF THE REASONS FOR IT NOT BEING A HIT RECORD. BUT STILL A BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN SONG. THAT WAS SUNG BEAUTIFULMY. THANK U FOR YOUR POST. AND EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT DAY.

    andy pine

    Thanks for the info Roy..much appreciated...im 55 and ive loved this song since I was a small boy.

  17. Timothy Stelly

    Eo non undra mi.

  18. Curtis Gilbert

    to whom it may concern, dig it, you made a promise to me, you'll never go. a hopelessly romantic song, when flowers fade away. you made a promise to me, you'll never go.

    Bruce A. Hawes

    It was really not hopeless Curtis. Love is a matter of acceptance of change and evolution of ones' self and the status of the situation. In life some break ups are inevitable. Thanks or commenting. #BH #TSOP
