My gift is my song, and this one’s for you
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
[Verse 3]
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
[Verse 2]
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
I know it’s not much, but it’s the best I can do
I hope you don’t mind
[Chorus]
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
Or a man who makes potions on a traveling show
[Outro]
It may be quite simple, but now that it’s done
And you can tell everybody this is your song
So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
[Chorus]
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I’d buy a big house where we both could live
I hope you don’t mind

It’s for people like you that keep it turned on
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
I hope you don’t mind

And you can tell everybody this is your song
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words

Well, a few of the verses, well, they’ve got me quite cross

[Verse 4]
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
[Verse 1]
I don’t have much money, but boy if I did
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean
You see, I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
