Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “seconds/minutes/hours.”

~~~~~~~~~~

I went with the concept of time in general because… Michael Jackson! 😀

Remember the Time was a successful attempt by Jackson in 1992 to create a dance-oriented, new jack swing-flavored jam with the assistance of co-producer Riley. The lyrics are about remembering having fallen in love with someone.

Remember the Time was generally well received by contemporary critics. The song was commercially successful, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number one on the Billboard R&B singles chart. Internationally, the song was a top ten hit in nine countries, peaking at number one in New Zealand, at two in Spain and three in the United Kingdom. The song reached the top ten in all major territories.

A nine-minute music video directed by John Singleton, marketed as a “short film”, was released for the song. The video is set in ancient Egypt and features appearances by Eddie Murphy, Iman, Tommy “Tiny” Lister and Magic Johnson.

Get ready to chair dance!

Enjoy!

Remember the Time

by Michael Jackson

Songwriters:  Michael Jackson / Bernard Belle / Teddy Riley

Do you remember
When we fell in love
We were so young and innocent then
Do you remember
How it all began
It just seemed like heaven so why did it end?
Do you remember
Back in the fall
We’d be together all day long
Do you remember
Us holding hands
In each other’s eyes we’d stare
(Tell me)
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
Do you remember
How we used to talk
(Ya know)
We’d stay on the phone at night till dawn
Do you remember
All the things we said like
I love you so I’ll never let you go
Do you remember
Back in the Spring
Every morning birds would sing
Do you remember
Those special times
They’ll just go on and on
In the back of my mind
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
Those sweet memories
Will always be dear to me
And girl no matter what was said
I will never forget what we had
Now baby!
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
Remember the times
Ooh
Remember the times
Do you remember girl
Remember the times
On the phone you and me
Remember the times
Till dawn, two or three
What about us girl
Remember the times
Do you, do you, do you, do you, do you
Remember the times
In the park, on the beach
Remember the times
You and me in Spain
Remember the times
What about, what about
Remember the times
Ooh, in the park
Remember the times
After dark
Do you, do you, do you
Remember the times
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Remember the times
Yeah yeah
