I’ve been on the most random Clark Sisters kick for about three days now. I’m finding all of the old stuff, rare performances, and all -and if you didn’t already know, The Clark Sisters were/are a BAD group (MJ BAD), and not only did they sound AMAZING [ harmony, riffs and runs to DIE for]; but what they did was  iconic. They said they used to play the Clark Sisters (Gospel group brought up in the C.O.G.I.C. church) in the Dance Clubs (Studio 54 and all). 

Also, I knew that this song sounded a little too close to Stevie’s “Master Blaster” , and Twinkie confirmed she “borrowed” from the song.

Just to get on Twinkie a little, she is probably my favorite Clark Sister. When I say this lady can BEAT an organ, and then slay your life with her vocals at the same time, Wrote, produced, and arranged almost all of their songs- Incredible; and to top it off she’s super humble.  But yeah, all of them are talented ( you don’t need me to tell you that). Now Imma need a collaborative CD with all of the family: TCS, Kierra Sheard, JMoss, and Angel and any of their other kids/cousins that can SANG.

If it had not been for the Lord
I don’t know
If it had not been for the Lord
I don’t know

I can’t take no credit for where I am today
That would be silly of me
But I’ve been guilty of getting beside myself
Doin’ things my way
Makin’ a mess I confess
That I’m so undeserving ya’ll
No I’m not worthy at all
For some reason He chose me
To be a voice for Him
To make some noise for Him
Clearly He saw somethin’ I didn’t see

If it had (had) not (not) been (been) for the Lord
(I don’t know) I don’t know (don’t know)
If it had (had) not (not) been (been) for the Lord (for the Lord)
I don’t know (Ohhhhh)

Could have been the topic of some breakin’ news
But He kept His hand on my life
And sometimes I forget to say thank you
For the things that He’s done
Like giving His son
So undeserving ya’ll
No I’m not worthy at all
For some reason He chose me
To be a voice for Him
To make some noise for Him
Clearly He saw somethin’ I didn’t see

If it had (not) not (not been oooo) been for the Lord (for the Lord)
I don’t know (ehhhh)
If it had (had not been) not been for the Lord (the Lord)
I don’t know (don’t know)

I know what I’m talking bout
Take little voice and open your mouth
Tell Him have you waited for the Lord
Excuse me that’s what I was made for

If it had (had) not (not) been (been) for the Lord (for the Lord)
I don’t know (don’t know where I would be)
If it had (had not been Ohhho) not been for the Lord
(I don’t like to think about it don’t know where I’d be without Him)
I don’t know
If it had (uh) not (oh) been (been) for the Lord (Oooo)
I don’t know (don’t know where I would be)
If it had (oo) not (oo) been (been) for the Lord (for the Lord)
I don’t know (I don’t know but I’m glad he did)
