The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Could/Might/Should/Would.

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeffrey Osborne has enjoyed a successful music career as lead singer of the 70s R&B Funk band, LTD, and as a solo artist.

One of his biggest solo pop hits, You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song), reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart in 1986. On other US charts, You Should Be Mine peaked at #2 on both the Hot Black Singles and Adult Contemporary charts.

The Woo Woo Song is the title in parentheses because Jeffrey’s little daughter did not know the exact title. She identified the song saying “Daddy, sing ‘The Woo Woo Song’!” Jeffrey thus affectionately nicknamed the track.

FUN FACTS

    • The 17th episode of Cosby titled Valentine’s Day features Jeffrey Osborne guest starring and performing You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song).
    • You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song) appears on Jeffrey’s fourth album, Emotional.
    • Jeffrey was born in Providence, Rhode Island, the youngest of twelve children, with five brothers and six sisters. Osborne’s family was musically inclined and some of his siblings went on to have music careers—his brother, Billy Osborne, was his band-mate in L.T.D. Osborne’s father, Clarence “Legs” Osborne, was a popular trumpeter who played with Lionel Hampton, Count Basie, and Duke Ellington.

The song’s video has a smooth, easy feel, but it screams 80s because… blunt-cut hairstyles… and shoulder pads!  😀

Enjoy!

You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song)

Songwriters: Andy Goldmark / Bruce Robert
When you want all the love you deserve
And the heat is on your mind
Don’t you even think about it
I’ll be there just wrapped around you
I can’t hold back what I feel inside
It’s just a fact that you should be mine
Anything you want
You’ve got to fortify my love to fortify me
You should be mine, anything you want
You’ve got to fortify my love to fortify me
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Should be mine all mine
Anyway, that your heart has been denied
You can come to me, every time that we’re together
Just confirms the good thing we’ve got
And something this good can’t be defined
One thing’s for sure that you should be mine
Anything you want
You’ve got to fortify my love to fortify me
You should be mine, anything you want
You’ve got to fortify my love to fortify me
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Should be mine all mine
In the height of your worry
Where it’s running too deep for you
When it all proves too much, too much, too much
I’ll pull you through
I can’t hold back what I know inside
It’s just a fact that you should be mine
Anything you want
You’ve got to fortify my love to fortify me
You should be mine, anything you want
You’ve got to fortify my love to fortify me
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Can you woo, woo, woo?
Should be mine all mine
You should be mine
You should be mine
