Lyrics

Writer: Stevie Wonder

Do Do Do, Do Do Do, Do Do Do, Do Do
Do Do Do Do, Do Do Do, Do Do Do-oo

I longed for you since I was born
A woman sensitive and warm
And that you were

With pride and strength no one would test
But yet have feminine finesse
And so much more

Chorus: You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world
You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world

A female Shakespeare of your time
With looks to blow Picasso's mind
You were the best

Your body moved with grace and song
Like symphonies by Bach or Brahms
Nevertheless, oh oh

Chorus: You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world
Ooh you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world

Da Da Da, Da Da Da, Da Da Da, Da Da Da
Da Da Da, Da Da Da-aa

The passion burning in your heart
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark
Where did it go

Just why that you would overnight
Turn love to stone as cold as ice
I'll never know

Chorus: But you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world
Baby you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world
Cold, too cold, you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me right back down to this cold, cold world
Oh, Oh, Oh, you took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down into this cold, cold world
I would not do that to a dog

Background
You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world
You took me riding in your rocket gave me a star
But at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world
Rocket love
