A Love Song

Album: Love Songs (1973)
Charted: 12
  • There's a wren in a willow wood
    Flys so high and sings so good
    And he brings to you, what he sings to you
    Like my brother the wren and I
    Well, he told if I try, I could fly for you
    And I want to try for you, 'cause

    I want to sing you a love song
    I want to rock you in my arms all night long
    I want to get to know you
    I want to show you, the peaceful feelin' of my home

    Summer thunder on moon-bright days
    Northern Lights and skies ablaze
    And I bring to you, lover, when I sing to you
    Silver wings in a fiery sky
    Show the trail of my love and I
    Sing to you, love is what I bring to you
    And I want to sing to you, oh

    I want to sing you a love song
    I want to rock you in my arms all night long
    I want to get to know you
    I want to show you, the peaceful feelin' of my home

    Brief interlude

    I want to sing you a love song
    I want to rock you in my arms all night long
    I want to get to know you
    I want to show you, the peaceful feelin' of my home
    I want to show you, the peaceful feelin' of my home
