„Ah, they tell me that the river's too deep
And it's much too wide for you can't get across to the other side.
But they don't know I've got to get there and hold her in my arms
Just a one more time like I did before when she was mine all mine.
Cause I can hear her saying (come to me baby)
I'm going away.
I'm going to stay.
I'm gonna get to you, no matter what I have to do.“
— Smokey Robinson American R&B singer-songwriter and record producer 1940
Way Over There, written by Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, Jr. (1960)
