It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live.
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no,
or a man* who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you.
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
($) |: I hope you don't mind :| that I put down in words,
how wonderful life is while you're in the world (fine)
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well, a few of the verses, well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on.
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen.
dal $egno al fine
