Danny's Song

People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one
We've just begun; I think I'm gonna have a son
He will be like you and me; as free as a dove
Conceived in love; the sun is gonna above

CHORUS: Even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with you, honey
Everything will bring a chain of love

In the morning when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes.
And tell me everything's gonna be alright

Pisces-Virgo rising is a very good sign, strong and kind
And the little boy is mine
Now I see a family where there once was none
We've just begun, yeah, we're gonna fly to the sun

CHORUS: And even though, we ain't got money, I'm so in love with you, honey. Everything will bring a chain of love. And in the morning when I rise, bring a tear of joy to my eyes. And tell me everything's gonna be alright

Love a guy who holds the world in a paper cup, drink it up
Love him and he'll bring you love
And if you find that he helps your mind, better take him home
And don't you live alone, try to have what lovers own

CHORUS: And even though, we ain't got money, I'm so in love with you, honey. Everything will bring a chain of love. And in the morning when I rise, bring a tear of joy to my eyes. And tell me everything's gonna be alright

People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one
And we've just begun, I think I'm gonna have a son
He will be like you and me, as free as a dove
Conceived , the sun is gonna shine above

Love a guy who holds the world in a paper cup drink it up
Love him and he'll bring you love
