Got love, if that's what you need
I got three or four babies sitting on my knee
I got good love waiting for you
I come sneaking around the corner of the avenue

Got love, if that's what you need
I got three or four babies sitting on my knee
I got good love waiting for you
I come sneaking around the corner of the avenue

You got Ma-Ma-Ma Belle or I will get you
You know you got Ma-Ma-Ma Belle, I will get you

There's one thing that's on my mind
And that's getting hold of you before I serve my time
I got to keep on, with my heavy load
Till I see you come a strolling down that open road

You gotta Ma-Ma-Ma Belle before I get you
Can't deny it, you gotta Ma-Ma-Ma Belle, I will get you
[Incomprehensible] Ma-Ma-Ma Belle, I will get you
You know I'm talking 'bout Ma-Ma-Ma Belle, I will get you

I love you Ma-Ma Belle
That's why I want to get it on well I'm sure you can tell
I got good soul running so deep
Gonna get you in the corner so that I can keep

Can't you hear me once Ma-Ma-Ma Belle or I will get you, yeah
And I love Ma-Ma-Ma Belle or I will get you, yeah
And you got Ma-Ma-Ma Belle or I will get you, yeah
Down inside those Ma-Ma-Ma Belle or I will get you, yeah

The album introduction

Electric Light Orchestra's third album showed a marked advancement, with a fuller, more cohesive sound from the band as a whole and major improvements in Jeff Lynne's singing and songwriting. This is where the band took on its familiar sound, Lynne's voice suddenly showing an attractive expressiveness reminiscent of John Lennon in his early solo years, and also sporting a convincing white British soulful quality that was utterly lacking earlier. The group also plugged the holes that made its work seem so close to being ragged on those earlier records. "Showdown" and "Ma-Ma-Ma Belle" (the latter featuring Marc Bolan on double lead guitar with Lynne) became AM radio fixtures while "Daybreaker" became a concert opener for the group and, along with "In the Hall of the Mountain King," kept the group's FM/art rock credentials in order.
