INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SONG
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_I_Ever_Fall_in_Love

If I Ever Fall in Love” is a song by American R&B-soul quartet Shai. The song reached number 2 in the US in 1992, and peaked at number two on the US R&B chart.[2] Its eight weeks at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, which was held off from the top slot by The Height’s How Do You Talk to an Angel and also due to the massive success of “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston, it was blocked for another seven more weeks, meant that it held the record for the second-most weeks at number two in the chart’s history at the time, behind Foreigner’s “Waiting for a Girl Like You”. The record has since been equalled and surpassed, and “If I Ever Fall In Love” is now in joint ninth place with a number of more recent songs.

The song was also their only Top 40 hit in the UK, peaking at number 36.[3]”…

LYRICS – IF I EVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
(writer- Carl Martin)

The very first time
That I saw your brown eyes
Your lips said “Hello”
And I said “Hi”
I knew right then you were the one
But I was caught up
In physical attraction
But to my satisfaction
Baby you were more than just a phase
And if I ever (ever fall) in love again (again)
I will be sure that the lady is a friend
And if I ever (ever fall) in love so true (true)
I will be sure that the lady’s just like you
Oooh
Yeeaah, baby, yeah
Ma-ma, ma-my, ma-my
I swear next time she’ll be my friend
If I say that I can be your one and only
(Promise, promise) Promise that you’ll never leave me lonely
I just wanna be the one you need
Oh baby
I just wanna be the one who serves you
Sometime I feel as if I don’t deserve you
I cherish every moment that we share
And if I ever (ever fall) in love again (again)
I will be sure that the lady is a friend
And if I ever (ever fall) in love so true (true)
I will be sure that the lady’s just like you
(My friend)
Very next time she will be my friend
Someone who I can believe in
(My friend)
[Repeat]
And if I ever (ever fall) in love again (again)
I will be sure that the lady is a friend
And if I ever (ever fall) in love so true (true)
I will be sure that the lady’s just like you

“Fall/Winter of 1992 into 1993!
Teenager growing up in Crown heights/Flatbush/Brooklyn!
Girls went crazy at every house/apartment party when any DJ played this hit/tune!
R&B in the 1990s was the last golden era/decade of real music with meaning, soul, harmony and a message!”
