“What Love Has Joined Together” by Smokey Robinson Lyrics

Easy, it would be easy
I said, easy, it would be easy

It would be easier to take the wet from water
Or the dry from sand
Than for anyone to try to separate us
Stop us from holding hands

‘Cause I love you (‘Cause I)
Girl, I love you (Love you)
Ooh, I love you from the bottom of my heart
And what love has joined together
(What love has joined together)
Don’t let nobody (Nobody take it apart)
Oh, you know you can’t let (Nobody take it apart)
Alright

Ha-ha, yeah

It would be easier to take the cold from snow (Easier)
(It would be easier) Or take the heat from fire
Than for anyone to take my love from you (Easier)
(It would be easier) You’re my heart’s desire

And I love you, baby (‘Cause I love you, baby)
Really, really love you, baby (Really, really love you, baby)
Oh, I love you from the bottom of my heart
And what love has joined together, yeah
(What love has joined together)
Ooh, don’t let nobody (Nobody take it apart)
Oh, you know you can’t let (Nobody take it apart)
Nobody, nowhere, no how, no time (Nobody take it apart)
Dad or mother, sis or brother (Nobody take it apart)
Oh, nobody

I said, even if they (Even if they) separate us
A thousand miles apart (A thousand miles apart), yeah, yeah
We will still be together, I know
We will still be together
We’ll be together in each other’s hearts
It would be easy, it would be easy
(It would be easy) Easy
(It would be easy)

It would be easier to change all the seasons of the year
Than for anyone to come along and change
The way I feel about you
I love you, dear

Girl, I love you, love you (‘Cause I), love you, love you
Love you, love you (Love you), love you, love you
Love you from the bottom of my heart
And what love has joined together, together
(What love has joined together)
Don’t let nobody (Nobody take it apart)
Ooh, don’t let no one (Nobody take it apart)

I say what love
(Has joined) Has joined
(Together) Ooh, don’t let nobody come between it
(Love) What love
(Has joined) Has joined
(Together) Ooh, don’t say you love me unless you mean it
Forever
