I've been alive forever And I wrote the very first song I put the words and melodies together I am music, and I write the songs. (Chorus:) I write the songs that make the whole world sing I write the songs of love and special things I write the songs that make the young girls cry I write the songs, I write the songs. My home lies deep within you And I've got my own place in your soul Now when I look out through your eyes I am young again, even though I'm very old. Chorus My music makes you dance And gives you spirit to take a chance And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move Music fills your heart And that's a real fine way to start It's from me, it's for you It's from you, it's for me It's a worldwide symphony. Chorus (bis) I am music, and I write the songs!
