Jennifer Holliday – And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going lyrics

And I am telling you:
I'm not going
You're best man I've ever known
There's no way I can ever go

No no there's no way
No no no no way
I'm living without you
I'm not living without you
I don't wanna be free

I'm staying
I'm staying
And you - and you
You're gonna love me
Hm
You're gonna love me
Yes, you are

And I am telling you:
I'm not going
Even though there are times I should
There's just no way -
There's no way!

We're part of the same place.
We're part of the same time.
We both share the same blood.
We both have the same mind.

In time, in time
We've had so much to share...
No, no, no, no!
I'm not wakin' up tomorrow morning
Hah, hah -
And finding that there's nobody there!

Darling, there's no way -
No, no, no, no way
I'm living without you.
I'm not living without you.
You see there's just no way -
There's no way!

Tear down the mountains!
Yell, scream and shout!
You can say what you want -
I'm not walking out!

Stop all the rivers!
Push, strike and kill!
I'm not gonna leave you -
There's no way I will...

And I am telling you:
I'm not going.
You're the best man I'll ever know.
There's no way I can ever, ever go.
No, no, no, no way,
No, no, no, no way
I'm living without you.
I'm not living without you.
Not living without you.
I don't wanna be free.
I'm staying.
I'm staying.
And you - and you - and you -
You're gonna love me...
You're gonna love me...
Yes you are...

Oo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Love me -
Love me -
Love me -
Love me -
Love me -
Love me -
You're gonna love -
Me!

    I posted to you a little while ago and hit enter too soon. I didn't finish my message. This is the correct one. I also sent you some corrections for lyrics and comments in the comment box. I was practicing, with your fantastic site, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" (The original Jennifer Holliday version, not the cheap, lousy, undeserving knock-off who won the Oscar for the movie. I won't even print her name. If they had cast it a touch older, they could have used the real thing instead. She's only forty-eight, but scuttlebutt says she's svelte these days and looks sensational). Jennifer Yvette Holliday, was born in 1960. Make ya feel old? She was so young when I saw her. But I guess I wasn't 13 after all, as I told you, because I am 43 now. Either she was very young, or I was much older. For that song, Holliday won a Grammy, a Tony, A Drama Desk, A Theatre World, Oh. And she has a Ph. D. In Music from Berklee School of Music in Boston.
