Ebony Eyes

Lyrics

She's a Miss Beautiful Supreme
A girl that others wish that they could be
If there's seven wonders of the world
Then I know she's gotta be number one
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes

She's the sunflower of nature's seeds
A girls that some men only find in their dreams
When she smiles it seems the stars all know
Cause one by one they start to light up the sky
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes

a girl that can't be beat
born and raised on ghetto streets
a devastating beauty
a pretty girl with ebony eyes

When she starts talking soft and sweet
Like birds of spring her words all seem to sing
With a rhythm that is made of love
And the happiness that she only brings
She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony eyes

a girl that can't be beat
born and raised on ghetto streets
a devastating beauty
a pretty girl with ebony eyes

Yeah, yea yea
.......yeah
Pretty black beauty
Yeah, hea yeah
Yea, yea, yeah, yea, yea, yeah
yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yeah

She's a girl that can't be beat
Born and raised on ghetto streets
She's a devastating beauty
A pretty girl with ebony ey---es
Ebony ey---es
Ebony ey---es
Ebony ey---es
Ebony eyes

Classic Albums: Songs In The Key Of Life

Classic Albums: Songs In The Key Of Life
In one of the most creative periods of the soul, Stevie Wonder released Songs in the key of life. Despite the tight control exercised Barry Gordy over the Motown artists, was one of the few who, along with Marvin Gaye, managed to escape capture in their records and what his mind could create. In this double album, Stevie had collaborations with many artists, including musicians and vocalists such as large, Michael Sembello, Herbie Hancock, Nathan Watts, Minnie Riperton, Deniece Williams, George Benson ... and we discovered compositions of heavenly delicacy, instrumentation with a higher evolutionary level and inspiration only possible for a divine touch.

The album debuted at No.1 in the USA charts and stayed there for 14 consecutive weeks. He was nominated for seven Grammy Awards, winning four of them, highlighting the best production, disco and R&B singer. The album is part of the U.S. Library of Congress which preserves the audio events that are culturally, historically or aesthetically important, Diamond disc, and above all is an album where both black and white, lovers of pop, soul, jazz, rock or any genre will find the oasis in the desert thirsty, paradise in hell hotter and oxygen to survive in the deepest ocean.

His importance to the significance and influence that has made music that has achieved classic status. Stevie is aware of what led to this work in his life and in the world of music, and pay tribute in a tour live 2014 performing adaptations for more than 10 cities across North America, beginning Nov. 6 in New York (Madison Square Garden), and having invited as India.Arie, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and other artists that we'll be adding to this SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE PERFORMANCE.

It is undoubtedly one of the best albums ever made, a nectar available to our ears as such must necessarily be savored.
