  • Here is my song for the asking
    Ask me and I will play
    So sweetly, I'll make you smile

    This is my tune for the taking
    Take it, don't turn away
    I've been waiting all my life

    Thinking it over, I've been sad
    Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
    To change my ways for the asking

    Ask me and I will play
    All the love that I hold inside
