There are few things that’s forever, my lady. We can make war or make babies. Back when I was nothin, you made a brother feel like he was somethin.

Word life you don’t need a ring to be my wife. Just be there for me and I'ma make sure we be livin in the effin lap of luxury. I’m realizing that you didn’t have to fuck wit me. But you did, now I’m going all out kid.

Plus I love the fact you got a mind of your own. No need to shop around you got the good stuff at home. Even if I’m locked up North you in the world. Wrapped in three-fourths of cloth never showin your stuff off, boo. It be true me for you that’s how it is

Can we talk about how fucking amazing these lyrics are? 

Valerie Simpson, singer, composer and producer, was born on this day, August 26, 1946 in the Bronx, New York. Simpson, on the right, rose to fame alongside her husband Nicholas Ashford, left, who she met in New York city in 1963. They wrote for artists such as Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles with hits “Cry Like a Baby” and “Let’s Go Get Stoned.” They later joined Motown Records and wrote “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “You’re All I Need to Get By” and among many other big hits. Ashford & Simpson, as they were known collectively, continued to have hits with Teddy Pendergrass, Chaka Khan, Rufus, Smokey Robinson and others. Together they also had their own albums, four of which were certified gold. Simpson, herself, had three solo albums in the 70s. They were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002. In 2011, Ashford died of complications due to throat cancer. Simpson has since released a solo album, “Dinosaurs Are Coming Back Again.”
