Lyrics

TPut It In A Song

When you told me in your silly little way

That I was like a sunny day

On the Champs Elysée

I told you I would find some way

To put that in a song

 

You said I was the best

I told you you were better

You told me I was too much

And I said better than not enough

We said all kinds of other crazy stuff

 

It’s taken me this long

To put it in a song

 

You used to ask me why I’d sing

Only about my imagining

You said I’d sing about most anything

But you, and you are everything

Or so I’ve told you all along

 

You don’t haunt my dreams, I’d explain

The earth is your domain

You are sweetest dream come true

And so I never dream of you

But when I do no song will ever be so strong

 

It’s taken me this long

To put that in a song

 

Last night after you fell asleep

By your bedside light

I counted all the freckles on you cheek

And kissed each one sweet dreams and then

I took some paper and a pen

 

And put it in a song

It didn’t take me long

It didn’t take me long

To put it in a song
