Donny Hathaway – I Thank You lyrics

With June Conquest

Mama said thank you
For the rain
She said thank you
For every little drop
On the window pane

She said thank you
When she didn't have a dime
'Cause she knew
That the Man upstairs
Would be right there on time

And like the love
She spread from day to day
June, I'd like to tell you
In my own sweet way
You really got a hold on me

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
(My Lord) saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but
Baby, now I'm found
I was so blind, now I see

I, too understand
Going back into my life
And though it was hard
He would comfort me

Ooh, baby, my home was depressed
From the strain and strife
I'm in gratitude for the
Love she gave so tenderly

And like the love
She spread from day to day
I'd like to tell you
In my own sweet way
You really got a hold on me

I thank you, baby (thank you)
You really got a hold on me
I thank you, baby

Oh, like the love
She spread from day to day
Honey, I wanna tell you
In my own sweet way

You know I love you (I love you)
Oh, oh, you really got a hold on me

I thank you, baby (I thank you, baby)
I thank you, baby (I thank you, baby)
I sure thank you, baby
(Thank you, thank you, baby)

Been good to me, baby
(Thank you, baby)
So good to me, boy
(I wanna thank you, darling)

I wanna thank you, baby
(Oh, thank you, baby)
