The Happening Lyrics:

Original songwriter: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, Eddie Holland, Franck De Vol Hey life

Look at me

I can see the reality

'Cos when you shook me took me outta my world

I woke up

Suddenly I just woke up to the happening

When you find that you left the future behind

'Cos when you got a tender love you don't take care of then you better beware of the happening

One day you're up when you turn around

You find your world is tumbling down

It happened to me and it can happen to you

I was sure

I felt secure until love took a detour

Yeah

Riding high on top of the world it happened

Suddenly it just happened

I saw my dreams torn apart

When love walked away from my heart

And when you lose a precious love you need to guide you

Something happens inside you

The happening

Now I see life for what it is

It's not of dreams ooh it's not of bliss

It happened to me once

And then it happened ooh ooh

And then it happened ooh ooh and then it happened

Ooh ooh and then it happened

Is it real?

Is it fake?

Is this game of life a mistake?

'Cos when I lost the love

I thought was mine for certain suddenly it starts hurtin'

I saw the light too late when that fickle finger of fate

Yeah it came and broke my pretty balloon

I woke up suddenly I just woke up

So sure I felt secure until love took a detour

'Cos when you got a tender love you don't take care of

Then you better beware of

So sure I felt secure until love took a detour

'Cos when you got a tender love you don't take care of

Ooh then you better beware of the happening

Artist Information

American soul and R&B group, recording during the 1960s and 1970s. Diana Ross (1961 to 1970) Mary Wilson (1961 to 1977) Florence Ballard (1961 to 1967) Barbara Martin (1961 to 1962) Cindy Birdsong (1967 to 1972, 1974 to 1976) Jean Terrell (1970 to 1973) Lynda Laurence (1972 to 1973) Scherrie Payne (1974 to 1977) Susaye Greene (1976 to 1977) Hugely successful female vocal group formed in 1961, after initially after being called The Primettes from 1959 to 1960. Their best-known and most stable lineup was Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson, in which configuration they became Motown's top act of the 1960s, though of that line-up only Wilson remained in the group by the time of the 1970s disco incarnation represented here. The Supremes changed name in early 1967 to Diana Ross & The Supremes. Motown president Berry Gordy stated that the name change was done so that Motown could demand more money from live bookings, but rumors began to spread of an approaching Diana Ross solo career. At that time member Florence Ballard had begun drinking and occasionally missing performance and, by June 1967, was replaced by Cindy Birdsong, a member of Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles. In January 1970, Diana Ross & The Supremes gave their final performance and Ross began her solo career. Jean Terrell replaced Diana as the lead singer and thereby renaming the group back to The Supremes. Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 (Performer).
