The Supremes “Stone Love“ When When Diana Ross left to pursue a solo career in 1970 and was replaced by Jean Terrell, at which point the group’s name reverted to The Supremes.

Lyrics: Life is so short / Put the present time at hand/ Aww yeah–and if you’re young at heart/Rise up and take your stand/ And to the man/ On whose shoulder/ The world must depend/ I pray for peace and love–Amen
Oooh–can’t ya feel it–mmm hmm/ Stoned Love/ I tell ya I ain’t got no other/Ahh haa/ Stoned Love/ Aww yeah
