Thank You for The Music - The Carpenters
(from "the tonight show, 1978")
I'm nothing special, in fact i'm a bit of a bore
If i tell a joke you've probably heard it before
But i have a talent, a wonderful thing
'cause everyone listens when i start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All i want is to sing it out loud
(*) so i say
Thank you for the music, the songs i'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, i ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So i say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
Mother says i was a dancer before i could walk
She says i began to sing long before i could talk
And i've often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can?
Well, whoever it was, i'm a fan
I've been so lucky, i am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance!
