Marvin, he was a friend of mine And he could sing a song, his heart in every line Marvin sang of the joy and pain He opened up our minds, and I still can hear him say "Aw talk to me, so you can see, what's going on" Say you will sing your songs forevermore
Album: Nightshift (1985). Charted: 3 3. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. David from Honolulu, HiI have a feeling the "nightshift" The Commodores are singing about is in reference to the afterlife. A great song & I wish this group had more than one major hit after Lionel Richie's departure in 1982. The Commodores had one more follow-up single to "Nightshift" ( - Billboard Hot 100). Janet" made the lower reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 chart during the summer of 1985 before The Commodores split up. Trevino from UsaThis song brings back memories as a kid listening to the radio.
Nightshift is found on the album Nightshift. You found another home I know you're not alone On the nightshift. Jackie (Jackie), hey what'you doing now It seems like yesterday When we were working out Jackie (Jackie, oh) you set The world on fire You came and gifted us Your love it lifted us Higher and higher Keep it up and We'll be there At your side Oh say you will sing Your songs forevermore (evermore)
