"You Made Me What I Am" as written by Deke Richards, Alphonso James Mizell, Freddie Perren and Berry Gordy Jr....
On the ground
Lost then found
To the top
Thanks a lot
You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today

You knew me when (do do do do)
But still you loved me (do do do do)
You stuck with me through thick and then, yea
You took my hand (do do do do)
And then you shoved me (do do do do)
'Til opportunity let me in
You pushed me right up to the top

[Chorus]
You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today

Fame and fortune (do do do do)
Can't change my name (do do do do)
That's not the life I want to lead, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Success is passing (do do do do)
And friends have left me (do do do do)
And a friend in need is a friend indeed
I know who my friends are
I know who you are


You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today

[Bridge]
Testify, Testify
Come on Testify
Testify, Testify
Come on Testify

The road was dark
When I set out to look for love
And you let the light shine through (Oh Testify)
I used the words
"That I could touch the sky above"
And you made it all come true (Whoa, Testify)
It was you (Thank you love, thank you baby)
It was you (Thank you love, thank you baby)

[Chorus]
You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today

On the ground
Lost then found
To the top
Thanks a lot
You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today

On the ground
Lost then found
To the top
Thanks a lot
You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today

On the ground
Lost then found
To the top
Thanks a lot
You made me what I am today
You made me what I am today
