Supremes, The - Floy Joy Lyrics




Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!
Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!
You're the man.
I know I'll never own you Floy
But see me when you can.

Ooh, ooh, I know
I'm only one of a million girls
Who would give their world to you Floy Joy.

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

That's your name.
Your real name may be Smith or Jones
But not your claim to fame.

Oh, it's a joy boy!
Any girl who knew you at all
Would have to call you Floy Joy!

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

I get a thrill when I hear your voice now, Floy.

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!
You're the man.

How much joy
Do I get from you?
You give me
So much pleasure
It's impossible to measure--

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

You're the man.
I hope in someway form or fashion
I fit in your plan.

Ooh, take me!
I wanna give myself to you
And live my whole life through with you
Floy Joy!

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

A-let me hear you say it one more time
Say it again.

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

A-let me hear you say it one more time
Say it again.

Floy, Floy, Floy
Floy Joy!

Supremes, The Floy Joy Comments
  1. mowestjohn

    Smokey definitely to The Supremes back to their roots on this track, wish he would have worked with them a bit more!

  2. Heather Ferreira

    As a kid listening to this in 1972, I always imagined Beatniks snapping their fingers inside some dark smoky club while singing along.  Cindy Birdsong certainly does seem to be affecting a husky, Beat vibe on her vocals here for sure... same with "Up The Ladder to The Roof" lol!  As a black woman, I sure wish we sisters would return to off-the-predicted-style songs like this again... hasn't melisma impressed enough drag queens and broken enough dishes by now?

  3. Anthony Patterson

    does it say diana ross and the supremes?

  4. TWTR4EVER

    Lol.......chosenssh......This are THE SUPREMES (Mary Wilson, Jean Terrell & Cindy Birdsong) Lynda Laurence substituted Cindy in the album cover and on tour but the recording was done by Cindy!
    There's NO Diane Ross here at all, she doesn't get credit for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Redboy4

    I wish Mary and Flo had the chance to at least share some of the leads in the early days, like Mary does here with Jean.  I really like Mary's vocals here.  It always seems to me from what I could remember of the post-Diana years that the group, Mary in particular, was so much more relaxed and gave off a happier vibe, even though they didn't have as many chart toppers.   Though we know that could be partly due to marketing, or the lack of it, in this case, by Motown.

  6. TheJmax59

    If there is any way you can change banner, I would definitely share it. Great audio!

  7. TheJmax59

    And Jean Terrell leads, not Mary Wilson. Actually she and Mary share lead on this one. My favorite!!

  8. fade2blackalone

    Editing is great.  It would have been nice to have given Jean Terrell her due considering Diana Ross wasn't with the group at the time.  Thank you for sharing.

  9. Pablo Rafael

    This Version is different, it exists on vinyl LP or 7 single ?

    I disagree with Craig - I was a young teenager when this came out and the whole sound was very Supremes - with or without Diana - Remember there was no video in those days - In retrospect I'm very glad those "Dreamgirls" finally got the spotlight. Too bad they weren't supported as Diana was. I enjoyed Diana's Supremes era more than her solo career material.

  11. Craig Paris

    you know I just saw this and youre editing is great I wish you could tudor me! but how could you possibly think Dianas voice was in there? I think the reason people went off was because this was a time where Mary got to do some leads Finally! niether Mary or Jeans voice sound anything like Dianas

  12. TWTR4EVER

    You're very welcome indeed & thank you once again for the memories!
    For those of us who travelled the "gamma" of THE SUPREMES this was a special period on which the group could have thrive and go to another level but all Motown's backing (marketing, publicity & distribution) was placed behind the image of Diane Ross who Berry Gordy together (her boss/lover) had plans of their own!
    The Supremes in 1970's were the "sacrificial lamb" for Diane Ross raise as a "solo act"
