Musically Speaking You can't take away from me part one

Be it on a old 8-track tape, a 33 and a third. Spinning on a turntable of a phonogragh. You can't take away from me the day I heard him SANG to me..... "Cupid, draw back your bow", sending it piercing straight to my soul, from that day forward, I came to know, that " A change was going to come" as the 45 played...... you can't take my Sam Cooke away. You cant take away the day I heard a beautiful lady sang to me about "Strange Fruit" hanging in them trees, or the day when i heard her say "them that's got shall have, them that's not shall lose,so the bible says and it still is news. Mama may have, Papa may have, but GOD BLESS THE CHILD that's got his own" She took my soul to another level, had me caught into a zone!!!! No matter what you say, You can't take away my Billie Holiday. You can't take away from me the day I heard him sang to me, 'bout those "Picket lines,and picket signs, don't punish me with brutality, talk to me, so you can see, WHAT'S GOIN' ON!!!! nor can you take away from the day I heard him say" MERCY,MERCY,ME" sangin' in reference to the ecology..... seem more relevent today, you see. There's nothing you can say, that can take away my Marvin Gaye. I'm just musically speaking, is that okay?????
