♫ When Will I See You Again ♫

This is the only song I can remember from the group The Three Degrees.  The group, originally formed circa 1963 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has had 15 members over the years, but only three at any given time.

This song, released in 1974, was written by the Philadelphia songwriting and production team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. It was released on their Philadelphia International Records and became the only #1 in the UK for the label.  According to member Sheila Ferguson …

“The song was played to me by Kenny Gamble at the piano in 1973 and I threw a tantrum. I screamed and yelled and said I would never sing it. I thought it was ridiculously insulting to be given such a simple song and that it took no talent to sing it. We did do it and several million copies later, I realized that he knew more than me.”

The song hit #2 in the U.S., and #1 in the UK where it spent two weeks.

When Will I See You Again
The Three Degrees

When will I see you again?
When will we share precious moments?
Will I have to wait forever?
Will I have to suffer (suffer)
And cry the whole night through?

When will I see you again?
When will our hearts beat together?
Are we in love or just friends?
Is this my beginning or is this the end? (is this the end?)

When will I see you again?
(When will I see you again?)
When will I see you again, love?

Are we in love or just friends?
Is this my beginning or is this the end? (is this the end?)

When will I see you again?
(When will I see you again?)
Sweet, sweet love of mine
(When will I see you again?)
Come on, come on
(When will I see you again?)
Tell me, yeah
(When will I see you again?)
My sweet lover, yeah
(When will I see you again?)
Ooh, yeah
(When will I see you again?)
Come on, come on
(When will I see you again?)
Come on, come on
(When will I see you again?)
Ooh ooh, yeah
(When will I see you again?)
(When will I see you again?)
