Whispers, The - Had It Not Been For You Lyrics

Do you realize
You're the only good thing
That has happened
To me since I've been on my own

Girl will you believe
If I had not met you
When I met you
Then I would not ever have known

The joy and beauty of
Two people sharing love, that's true
My whole world would have caved in
Girl had it not been for you

Girl you've done so much
To give my life a whole new direction
And much more than these word can say
(Word can say)

So I give you my thanks
And my promise that from now on baby
That we will with each passing day

Know the joy and beauty of
Two people sharing love, that's true
My whole world would have caved in
Girl had it not been for you


The joy and beauty of
Two people sharing love that's true
My whole world would have caved in
Girl had it not been for you

Oh baby, the joy and beauty of...

    Why oh why,has this amazing R and B who has been entertaining the masses for over 50 years....Not been honored with a B.,E.T.Honors Award, B.E.T.Legend nor a Soul Train Legend Award?
    All of the beautiful Ballads they have gifted us with..even finger-poppin songs " Rock Steady," And the Beat Goes On".
    It is a shame and a travesty ( I'm serious people),,that B.E.T. has Honored ,everybody and their Moma,but not this Group!!!!!

    Why is it year after year this amazing,gifted,soulful group from( over 50 years of giving us some of the most beautiful songs ever recorded ( such as this!!)...and yet B.E.T. continues to Look Over Snubb, WHISPERS.......Year after year!!!!
    I have called B.E.T.Corp,was told by a Receptionist that The Whispers were on the list,however only one performer/ group can be chosen ( that was about 7 years ago)2 years ago,I sent a E- mail,last year I mailed a handwritten written letter,yesterday( sinceThe Soul Train Awards were televised a few days ago)....I sent another E- mail( regarding this matter)
    And no I'm not some fanatic,nor Crazed fan!!!!
    With all due respect,The remaining members of the Group....are getting up in age!!!! It has been Long Overdue,for this fabulous group to be...... HONORED!!!!!!!!!!
    Rest in Peace,Marcus Hutson,Nicholas Caldwell,Mr.Grady" G" Wilkins.
    God Bless You and Thank you,Scotty,Walter and Leaveil....for keeping the Torch lit and Keeping it Movin.
    Peace and an Abundance to All.

    Many,many moons ago, when I was a young bachelor and had my own "Crib" back in the 1970's, I would invite some "Sweet Lady" over and would play Smokey, Luther, Marvin, Delfonics, Blue Magic, and a few other slow music jams on the old "Reel To Reel" tape recorder, getting in the mood, laughing, sipping on something smooth, having a good time, BUT, as soon as I started playing the "BOYS".....THE WHISPERS......
    .......EVERY TIME, and I MEAN EVERY TIME, the Romantic, Hot, Fireworks Kicked Off The Tender Surrender WITHOUT FAIL. WOW, WOW, WOW!! Thank You Whispers.

    After a lifetime 71 years, I found that special someone who became my best friend.  The joy and happiness of two people being love is an experience that I treasure even more when reminded by this song.  My love for my best friend grows with each passing day.  What is even more fantastic lies in the fact that I am 71 years old and my Best Friend is my six year old grandson.  My life, my love, my everything.

    "Had it not been for you."  Such a beautiful song that it transcends sex and gender.  it brings me to my "best friend"  who is a  five year old little boy that is also my grandson. Listening to this song makes me realize how God has blessed me with bringing that child into my life.
