2 comentarios:

  1. "A Fork in the Road" is a 1965 Motown song recorded by American R&B singing group The Miracles, and written by Miracles members Smokey Robinson, Pete Moore, and Ronnie White, on Motown Records' Tamla subsidiary label. (T54118) This song was included as the closing track on the Miracles' 1965 studio LP, Going to a Go-Go, and was also released as the B-side of their million-selling Grammy Hall of Fame hit single, "The Tracks of My Tears". Though this original version never charted nationally, it was a strong regional hit in many areas of the country and a popular part of the Miracles' live show.
    Nineteen years later, American singer Rebbie Jackson recorded a cover of the song for her debut album, Centipede. Jackson's cover was released as a single, and peaked at number 40 on the R&B chart.
    The Miracles' 2002 CD re-release of the Going To A Go Go/Away We A Go Go albums features a never-before released live version of "A Fork in the Road", delivered to an enthusiastic audience response.

  2. Beware

    Seems like love should be easier to bear
    But it's such a heavy load (A heavy load)
    Worldwide traveler, you ain't been nowhere
    Till you've traveled down love's road

    I know I may be just a stranger (Just a stranger)
    Lover, let me warn you there's the danger
    Of the fork in love's road

    The danger is there
    Ho, ho, ho (Danger)

    One way is for those who go along
    That way tempts a girl like me
    Oh, but lovers don't try to make it on your own (Don't try it, don't try it, don't try it)
    You don't want the misery

    Oh, oh, why didn't I see the sign
    Ooh, ooh, before I left my love behind
    At the fork in love's road

    The danger is there
    Ho, ho, ho

    If there is some thing that you don't see eye to eye (Eye to eye)
    You better think before you tell your love goodbye (Goodbye)
    'Cause your path may never cross again
    You make sure you take the same bend
    At the fork in love's road, baby

    The danger is there
    Watch the fork in the road
    You better beware
    (The fork in the road)

    Beware (Beware)
    The danger's there (Beware)
    Woo, hoo, hoo (Beware)
    (The fork in the road)

    The fork in love's road (Beware)
    You better beware (Beware)
