Melody Fair

Who is the girl with the crying face looking at millions of signs?
She knows that life is a running race,
Her face shouldn't show any lines.

Melody Fair won't you comb your hair? You can be beautiful too.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a woman.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a girl. Ah...

Who is the girl at the window pane, watching the rain falling down?
Melody, life isn't like the rain; its just like a merry go round.

Melody Fair won't you comb your hair? You can be beautiful too.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a woman.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a girl. Ah...

Who is the girl with the crying face, looking at millions of signs?
She knows that life is a running race.
Her face shouldn't show any lines.

Melody Fair won't you comb your hair? You can be beautiful too.
Melody Fair , remember you're only a woman.
Melody Fair, remember you're only a girl. Ah ....

To Love Somebody

There's a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you
There's a way everybody say
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I ain't got you, ain't got ?

You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

In my brain
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You ain't got to be so blind
And I'm blind, so so so blind
I'm a man, can't you see
What I am
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain't got you, ain't got ?

You don't know what it's like, baby
You don't know what it's like

To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

First of May

When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall,
we used to love while others used to play.
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by,
some one else moved in from far away.

(chorus)
Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small,
and you don't ask the time of day.
But you and I, our love will never die,
but guess we'll cry come first of May.

The apple tree that grew for you and me,
I watched the apples falling one by one.
And I recall the moment of them all,
the day I kissed your cheek and you were mine.

(chorus...)

When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall,
do do do do do do do do do...
Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by,
some one else moved in from far away.

Spicks And Specks

(The lyrics are not sung in the movie, the melody is played by children on recorders)

Where is the sun
That shone on my head
The sun in my life
It is dead
it is dead
Where is the light
That would play
In my streets
And where are the friends
I could meet
I could meet

Where are the girls
I left all behind
The spicks and the specks
Of the girls on my mind
Where is the sun
That shone on my head
The sun in my life
It is dead
it is dead

Where are the girls
I left all behind
The spicks and the specks
Of the girls on my mind

Where is the girl I loved
all along
The girl that I loved
she's gone
she's gone

All of my life
I call yesterday
The spicks and the specks
of my life 'have gone away
All of my life
I call yesterday
The spicks and the specks
of my life 'have gone away

Spicks and Specks!

In The Morning (Morning Of My Life)

In the morning when the moon is at it's rest,
you will find me at the time I love the best
watching rainbows play on sunlight;
pools of water iced from cold night, in the morning.
'Tis the morning of my life.

In the daytime I will meet you as before.
You will find me waiting by the ocean floor,
building castles in the shifting sands
in a world that no one understands,
In the morning.
'Tis the morning of my life,

In the evening I will fly you to the moon
To the top right hand corner of
the ceiling in my room
Where we'll stay until the sun shines
Another day to swing on clothes lines
May I be yawning
Tis the morning of my life
Tis the morning of my life
In the morning
In the morning
In the morning

Give Your Best

I'm just a clown that used to run around .
I used to have a million friends.
I used to start where everybody ends.
But I just give my best to my friends .

I've done my shows. Everybody knows .
I nearly sold all my clothes.
One man can give; another has to lend.
So I just give my best to my friends.
(spoken) and so you should .

And when you think that your life isn't right.
You know the day isn't always like night.
You've had your peace now it's time for you to fight.
Just give your best to your friends.

I'm just a clown that used to run around .

You've had your peace now it's time for you to fight.
Just give your best to your friends.

And when you think that your life isn't right .
You know the day isn't always like night .
You've had your peace now it's time for you to fight .
Just give your best to your friends.

Teach Your Children

 

You who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good bye.

Teach your children well,
Their father's hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

And you, of tender years,
Can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,
They seek the truth before they can die.

Teach your parents well,
Their children's hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.
