The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Babe/Cutie/Doll/Honey/Sweetie.

The driving beat and horn section in the beginning of this song tells you 1) it’s 80s music and, 2) it’s time to dance!

Detroit funk band, One Way, had only enjoyed modest success until the second release from their 1982 album, Who’s Foolin’ Who, Cutie Pie. A dance club favorite, the song soared to #4 on the US Billboard R&B Singles chart and #29 on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart. It peaked at #61 on the pop chart and would be the band’s only appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, leaving One Way to join the list of one-hit wonders.

 

FUN FACTS

    • Though One Way disbanded and reformed several times over the years without another hit song, in 2019, after a 31-year hiatus and now called One Way featuring Al Hudson, they  released their 12th album, New Old School.
    • Lead vocalist, Alicia Myers, left One Way before the release of their second album and went on to a moderately successful solo R&B career in the early 1980s.
    • Alicia’s older brother, Jackie Myers, also a musician, would later become part of the beach band, Chairman of the Board.
    •  Alicia is a survivor of childhood tuberculosis. She later survived breast cancer in 1998 and has since become an advocate for the disease.

Enjoy!

Cutie pie
You’re the reason why
I love you so
I don’t want you to go
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
Cutie pie
You brighten up my day
It’s impossible
For me to stay away
Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ‘round
I want you to know
How much I love you so
Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ‘round
Want you to see
How much you mean to me
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
Nothin’ but a cutie pie
Cutie pie
You really pick me up
Till I can’t
Hardly get enough
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
Cutie pie
You’re the reason why
I’m full of joy
Since you came into my life
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ‘round
I want you to know
How much I love you so
Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ‘round
Want you to see
How much you mean to me
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
Nothin’ but a cutie pie
Who makes me feel so good
You’re my cutie pie
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
You’re nothin’ but a cutie pie
Who makes me feel so good
You’re my cutie pie
You’re the girl who makes me feel good
Cutie pie
You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
You’re the girl who makes me feel good
Cutie pie
