  • Oh, I would take the stars out of the sky for you
    Stop the rain from falling if you ask me to
    I'd do anything for you, your wish is my command
    I could move a mountain when your hand is in my hand

    Oh, words can not express how much you mean to me
    There must be some other way to make you see
    If it takes my heart and soul, you know I'll pay the price
    Everything that I possess I'd gladly sacrifice

    [Chorus]
    Oh, you to me are everything
    The sweetest song that I can sing
    Oh baby, oh baby
    To you I guess I'm just a clown
    Who picks you up each time you're down
    Oh baby, oh baby
    You give me just a taste of love
    To build my hopes upon
    You know you've got the power boy
    To keep me holding on
    Oh, now you've got the best of me
    Come on and take the rest of me, oh baby, yeah, oh

    Oh, when you're close to me we seem so far apart
    Maybe given time you'll have a change of heart
    If it takes forever boy then I'm prepared to wait
    The day you give your love to me won't be a day too late

    [Chorus]

    Oh, you to me are everything
    The sweetest song that I can sing
    Oh baby, oh baby
    To you I guess I'm just a clown, I'm just a clown
    Who picks you up each time you're down
    Oh baby, oh baby

    Oh, you to me are everything
    The sweetest song that I can sing
    Oh baby, oh baby, baby
    To you I guess I'm just a clown
    Who picks you up each time you're down
    Oh baby, baby, oh baby, oh yeah

    You to me are everything
    The sweetest song that I can sing
    Oh baby, yeah, oh baby, baby
    To you I guess I'm just a clown
    Who picks you up each time you're down
    Oh baby, you know it, oh baby, baby

    You to me are everything
    The sweetest song that I can sing
    Oh baby, oh baby
    To you I guess I'm just a clown
    Who picks you up each time you're down
    Oh baby, oh baby Writer/s: KEN GOLD, MICHAEL DENNE

  • Clive Govender from South AfricaOne of my all time favorites too - the words are so clean and yet so meaningful…we all relate to it no doubt
    So glad we can always go back to the old school stuff and listen to songs with real lyrics… and not the drivel of today
  • Gwen from Buckingham, United KingdomThis is my all time fav song, co written by an old acquaintance Ken Gold, always be gratefull to him for a great song and introducing me to my bestest friend and father of my daughter. He's not with us now, but when ever I blast out this song loud and proud always brings a smile to my face. Thank you Kenny and all us Essex girls miss u xx
  • Sylvia from Suva, United StatesI love this song! I will drop everything and pelt out this tune on the top of my voice! How poetic are the lyrics?!! If a guy sang me this song, without even first talking to me, I'd be his love slave till the end of time!!!!
