LADY BIRD

 

When I open my door, In a breeze comes a fly

Then she glides evermore , And tickles my eyes

Who are you ?   Funny you

She says I’ve got to take you , To my greater country

Put down your shoe , And climb on my tree

Who are you ?   Funny you

Now that we are two , Isn’t it sunny ?

Who are you ?    I love yo

 

Hoo hoo lady bird , hoo hoo lady bird hoo hoo (bis)

I wouldn’t change for the world my Lady Bird

Hoo hoo lady bird , hoo hoo lady bird hoo hoo (bis)

 

When the winter’s over  , We’ll go down t’ the fields

We will live on flowers,  eat sugar and seeds

Who are you ?    Funny you

And if we need water  , We’ll do as we please

Who are you ?    I love you

 

Hoo hoo lady bird , hoo hoo lady bird hoo hoo (bis)

I wouldn’t change for the world my Lady Bird

hoo hoo lady bird, hoo hoo lady bird, hoo hoo ! (bis)

(ter)

 

"FATHER"

 

Father, if you'd been here...

You would have shown me the crack of down, the rising sun, the nights of fear.

Father, if you'd been here...

I wouldn't have dreamed of you as a wanderer, as a revenant, a stranger ...

 

I had to call you sometimes

I had to cry my sorrow

I did call for you...endlessly

I prayed the Lord for you

Not knowing who was who

I laid my life in your hands... disenchanted.

 

Father, if you'd been here...

You would've guided me in this life of dangers, this world of worriers, the life of mine

Father, if you'd been here...

I wouldn't be standing here, singing your song, shouting my pain, begging for love

 

I had to call you sometimes

I had to cry my sorrow

I did call for you...endlessly

I prayed the Lord for you

Not knowing who was who

I laid my life in your hands... disenchanted.

I had to call out to the stars

In hope one of them could be you

Maybe one of them was shining just for me...

 

Father...if you'd been here...

I wouldn't have gone mad imagining you, trying to be you, failing to be you...
