the moment I met you
I swear I felt as if something
Somewhere had happened to me
Which I couldn’t see.
And then the moment I met you again
I knew in my heart that we were friends
It had to be so it couldn’t be no
But try as hard as I might do.
I don’t know why you get to me
In a way I can’t describe
Words mean so little
When you look up and smile.
I don’t care what people say to me
You’re more than a child oh Clair
Clair if ever a moment so rare
Was captured for all to compare
That moment is you
in all that you do
But why in spite of our age
Difference do I cry each time I leave you
I feel I could die
Nothing means more to me
Than hearing you say.
I’m going to marry you
Will you marry me Uncle Ray oh Clair
Claire I’ve told you before don’t you dare
Get back into bed can’t you see that is late
No you can’t have a drink
Oh alright then but wait just a bit
While I in an effort to baby sit
Capture my breath what there is left of it
You can be murder at this hour of the day
But in the morning tonight will seem a life time away
