When We Were Kings

The Temptations

Ooooh, ooh-ooh-ooh ooh
Ooh

Six-foot tall and tan
Southern gentlemen
Dress impeccably, yeah
Called Otis, David, Blue
Eddie and Dennis too
Oh, what a pedigree, yeah
We're soul brothers to the bone (Ooh wee ooo)
And that four-headed microphone
Five-part harmony, yeah (Five-part harmony, oh)
Travellin' all around the world (World)
Stealing hearts and all the girls (My girl)
Every man's envy (Every man's envy)
Yeah (Ooh)

Music is our crown (Ooh)
Nothing like the sound
Of our voices together, yeah (Together)
We're still goin' strong
Sixty years ago and on forever (Ah, yeah)

When we were kings (Kings)
We had it going on so strong (Had it going on strong)
When we were kings (Kings)
We had it going on so strong (Had it going on strong)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

We were six feet tall
(That's everyone)
But best of all
(We sang like angels)
When we were kings (Kings)
We had it going on so strong (Had it going on strong)

The temptin' temptations, yeah (Temptin' temptations)
The temptin' temptations, yeah (Temptin' temptations, oh)

(When we were kings)
(We were kings)

Paul sure had the knack
Told 'em (Don't look back)
He always had the fire, fire
Eddie's voice could soothe (Soothe)
He was super smooth
Always takin' us higher, higher
There was so much goin' out there
Otis would keep us straight
While Melvin was so strong (Yeah)
Ooh, David wished it would rain (Rain)
Dennis sang about pain (Oh)
Papa was a rollin' stone (Papa was a rollin' stone)

Music is our crown (Ooh)
Nothing like the sound
Of our voices together, yeah (Together)
We're still goin' strong (Ooh)
Sixty years ago and on forever (Ah, yeah)

When we were kings (Kings)
We had it going on so strong (Had it going on strong)
When we were kings (Kings)
We had it going on so strong (Had it going on strong)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

We were six feet tall
(That's everyone)
But best of all
(We sang like angels) Oh yeah
When we were kings (Kings)
We had it going on so strong (Ooh, had it going on strong)

The temptin' temptations, yeah (Temptin' temptations)
The temptin' temptations, yeah (Temptin' temptations, oh)
The temptin' temptations (Temptin', temptin', temptin') (Temptin' temptations, oh)
This is a tribute to the greatest of all time (Yeah)
