I just called to say I love you

I just called to say I love you

Stimmband Nr. 1

I just called to say I love you,
I just called to say how much I care.
I just called to say I love you,
and I mean it from the bottom to my heart.

  1. No New Year’s day to celebrate,
    no choc’late covered candy hearts to give away.
    No first of spring, no song to sing,
    in fact here’s just another ordinary day.
    No April rain, no flowers bloom,
    no wedding Saturday within the month June.
    But what it is, is something true,
    made up of these three words that I must say to you.
    Chorus: I just called …
  2. No summer’s high, no warm July,
    no harvest moon to light one tender August night.
    No autumn breeze, no falling leaves,
    not even time for birds to fly to southern skies.
    No Libra sun, no Halloween,
    no giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring.
    But what it is though old so new,
    to fill your heart like no three words could ever do.
    Chorus: I just called …

Stimmband Nr. 2

Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight.
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
and who but my lady Greensleeves?

  1. Alas my love you do me wrong
    to cast me off discourteously;
    and I have loved you so long;
    delighting in your company.
    Chorus: Greensleeves …
  2. If you intend thus to disdain,
    it does the more enrapture me,
    and even so, I still remain
    a lover in captivity.
    Greensleeves …
  3. Alas, my love, that you should own
    a heart of wanton vanity,
    so must I meditate alone
    upon your insincerity.
    Greensleeves …
  4. Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu,
    to God I pray to prosper thee,
    for I am still thy lover true,
    come once again and love me!
    Greensleeves …
