Wonder, Stevie - Sylvia Lyrics




Whoa, oh, oh, yeah
Mmm, hmm Sylvia
You know you're getting to me now
Mmm, mmm, mmm, Sylvia
You gently touched my heart somehow

Yesterday you made me happy as a child at play
Just like the summer sun that warms my heart
And move on, now you are gone

Whoa, oh, oh, Sylvia
You're everything that I adore
That sweet song, that caught a spark in me more
Tenderly that's how you whisper that you loved me
As if a raindrop kissed my ear and disappeared, now you are gone

Oh, oh, oh, yeah
You know I love my little Sylvia

Whoa, oh, oh, yeah
And yesterday I feel in love with you all the way
Tenderly you lit a spark in my heart, now you are gone

Mmm, hmm, Sylvia
I gently miss Sylvia
I'm crazy 'bout ya, Sylvia
You know I love my little Sylvia

    I first heard this song in 1979 when it was added to Motown’s release of some of his old songs in the album called ‘Looking Back’. Loved it instantly and played it over and over.

    I remember listening to this song I was about 6 years old and my parents would play this song along with many other motown artist back in philly especially on the weekends cleaning and washing clothes. This song was so pretty I never forgot it. I feel it is one of his best recordings ever. 16 years old GOD is the only one who can showoff his choir and Stevie was sent down like manna from heaven. 16!!!!!!!! singing like that. OMG. 2019

    I'M JUST SAYING...

  31. Bentom86

    RIP Sylvia Moy...The lady who made The Genius. Among all the epic songs & decades, I really think Ive listened to this one more than any of his others. Stevie was only 16 when he delivered this classy & underrated gem, and he had an amazing team behind him at Motown to make it possible. I hope Ms. Moy's contributions will properly celebrated and never forgotten.

    lisa bradford

    it s amazing that a 16 year old is singing this. but then, stevie is pretty amazing anyway.

  49. solesirching73

    @PsalmsNmyrrh Actually, the real Sylvia Moy co-wrote this song with Stevie. No doubt what her reaction was

  50. Noal Downey

    I have this record and this song doesn't have those background vocals on it...does anyone know why that is?

    Shelly Rocha

    diferent version of course.

    Rich G

    Mono 45 version maybe .

  51. Silvia Maia

    Me orgulho do meu nome Sílvia ainda mais na boca deste ícone da boa música cantando, Stevie Wonder , the best!!

  52. Noal Downey

    the album version is a little different, no background, I like it a little better...

  53. musiclover59

    One of his best -- gorgeous melody, great arrangement, superb lead and backing vocals. The 60s were a special time.

  54. ricisrock

    All out Classic!

  55. rxs98

    Thank you for posting this beautiful song! However, the single version which was the B-side of PLACE IN THE SUN I believe was a bit smoother without the background singers. If someone could do the comparison it might be interesting. I do not own the album version heard here.

    Sylvia Blalock

    Exactly...

  56. Deayjay

    Always loved this song! Thanks for posting
