Their debut album, ?Give It Away,? was a solid effort, though not necessarily memorable. The next year, 1970, the band got funkier, and a new album was rushed out to include singles like ?I Like Your Lovin? (Do You Like Mine?).

Chi-Lites bass singer Creadel "Red" Jones gets a prominent vocal on this track, punctuating Record's lead. John Lennon's "Power to the People" was a hit shortly before this song cracked the charts. Like The Temptations, The Chi-Lites specialized in songs about love and heartbreak, but did release an occasional political song like this one. Eugene Record explained: "I don't want to get involved in this militant thing. I believe in what I'm doing but I don't want to get any deeper involved

Album (For God’s Sake) Give More Power to the People. Have You Seen Her Lyrics. And have a seat on the same old bench To watch the children play, huh You know, tomorrow is their future But to me just another day. They all gather around me They seem to know my name We laugh, tell a few jokes But it still doesn't ease my pain. As another day comes to an end I'm lookin' for a letter or somethin' Anything that she would send With all the people I know I'm still a lonely man You know, it's funny But I thought I had her in the palm of my hand. Have you seen her Tell me, have you seen her (tell me, have you seen her?) Oh doo Have you seen her?

Cut this jive an' see who's got the power to kill the most When they run out of power, the world's gonna be a ghost They know we're not satisfied, so we begin to holler They give us a promise an' throw in a few more dollars.
