Tito Jackson – I Gotta Play lyrics

Since I was a young boy
I never messed with toys
Good music is what I enjoyed
Papa Joe often looked me to
Sittin' round the house
Making guitar's groove

That's why I
That's why I play the blues

Grabbed myself a guitar
And started playing live
In a group with my brothers
The Jackson 5
Gave music to my boys 3T
It's cool
But nothing makes me happier
Than grooving blues

That's why I say
I gotta play the blues

We played music all over the
North, East and South
Way before ABC
Was even thought about
Music was caused
In different direction
That's what I remember
To my best recollection

But today
I gotta play the blues

Wanna be
A little different
Do something
My brothers dare to do
