“1 – 2 – 3” – Música

1 – 2 – 3” is a 1965 song recorded by American blue-eyed soul singer Len Barry, who co-wrote the song with John Medora and David White. The recording’s chorus and accompaniment were arranged by Jimmy Wisner. The single was released in 1965 on the American Decca label. The writers were sued by Motown Records at the time, claiming that the song is a reworking of Holland-Dozier-Holland‘s “Ask Any Girl” released by The Supremes as the B-side to their single “Baby Love” the year before. They denied the claim, but after two years of litigation, agreed to give the Motown writers 15% of the song’s writing and publishing royalties. Holland-Dozier-Holland are listed as co-authors by BMI.

 

Len Barry – 1-2-3

1-2-3, oh, that’s how elementary it’s gonna be
C’mon, let’s fall in love, it’s easy (it’s so easy)
Like takin’ candy (like takin’ candy) from a baby

A-B-C (A-B-C) fallin’ in love with you was easy for me (easy for me)
And you can do it, too, it’s easy (it’s so easy)
Like takin’ candy (like takin’ candy) from a baby

Baby, there’s nothin’ hard about love
Basically, it’s as easy as pie
The hard part is livin’ without love
Without your love, baby, I would die

[mostly instrumental with (1-2-3) (1-2-3)]

It’s easy (it’s so easy)
Like takin’ candy (like takin’ candy) from a baby, yay

One and one are two (one and one are two)
I know you love me and oh,oh, how I love you (how I love you)
Don’t try to fight it ’cause it’s easy (it’s so easy)
Like takin’ candy (like takin’ candy) from a baby, yay

1-2-3 (1-2-3) oh, that’s how elementary it’s gonna be (it’s gonna be)
C’mon, let’s fall in love, it’s easy (1-2-3)
[Fade]
Oh, that’s how elementary
