Petula Clark My Friend The Sea

Oh you great ocean so deep, Oh you ocean so wide

I feel you are my friend so in you I confide

You know the world, every land, every shore

There’s not a place you don’t explore

Send every wave as it rolls on it’s way

Searchin’ high, searchin’ low, searchin’ each little bay

Send out a plea to the whole of seven seas

Where is the one I adore?

My friend the sea, be true to me

My love, one day sailed far away

My friend the sea, please ask the tide

To bring my love home to my side

Oh you great ocean so deep, Oh you ocean so wide

There are hearts you unite, There are hearts you divide

You know the world; Every river, mountain, stream

Look everywhere you’ve ever been

Ask all the fish as they swim out to sea

Would they pass on the word as a favor to me

Maybe they’ll look out some little brook

And find the one I adore

My friend the sea, be true to me

My love, one day sailed far away

My friend the sea, please ask the tide

To bring my love home to my side

Petula Clark Two Rivers

I was born in a great big city

With a river running by

London (London)

And this is the town that I loved and knew

This is the place where I lived and grew

And dreamed of love

Then, I met someone with a different voice

Had a different sound, from a different town

From a different land, and he took my hand

And I followed him, oh yeah

Now, I live in a great big city

With a river running by

Paris (Paris)

And this is the town that I’ve learned to know

This is the place where my love can grow

And the dream of love has come true

In my heart with every beat

Two rivers flow, two rivers meet

And love, and love

Petula Clark I Will Follow Him

I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go

There isn’t an ocean too deep

A mountain so high it can keep me away

I must follow him

Ever since he touched my hand I knew

That near him I always must be

And nothing can keep him from me

He is my destiny

I love him, I love him, I love him

And where he goes I’ll follow, forever, and ever

And side by side together, I’ll be with my true love

And share a thousand sunsets together beside him

I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go

There isn’t an ocean too deep

A mountain so high it can keep, keep me away

Away from my love

I love him, I love him, I love him

And where he goes I’ll follow, forever, and ever

And side by side together, I’ll be with my true love

And share a thousand sunsets together beside him

I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go

There isn’t an ocean too deep

A mountain so high it can keep, keep me away

Away from my love

Petula Clark Don’t Sleep In The Subway

You wander around

on your own little cloud

when you don’t see the why

or the wherefore.

Ooh, you walk out on me

when we both disagree

’cause to reason is not what you care for.

I’ve heard it all a million times before.

Take off your coat, my love, and close the door.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darlin’.

Don’t stand in the pouring rain.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darlin’.

The night is long.

Forget your foolish pride.

Nothing’s wrong,

now you’re beside me again.

You try to be smart

then you take it apart

’cause it hurts when your ego is deflated.

um-m-um-um-um-um

You don’t realize

that it’s all compromise

and the problems are so over-rated.

Good-bye means nothing when it’s all for show.

So why pretend you’ve somewhere else to go?

Don’t sleep in the subway, darlin’.

Don’t stand in the pouring rain.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darlin’.

The night is long.

Forget your foolish pride.

Nothing’s wrong,

now you’re beside me again.

Oh, oh, oh.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darlin’.

Don’t stand in the pouring rain.

Don’t sleep in the subway, darlin’.

The night is long.

Forget your foolish pride.

Nothing’s wrong,

now you’re beside me again.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

[repeat chorus and fade out]

Petula Clark The Other Man’s Grass

Life is never what it seems

We’re always searching in our dreams

To find that little castle in the air

When worry starts to cloud the mind,

It’s hard to leave it all behind

And just pretend you haven’t got a care

There’s someone else in your imagination

You wish that you were standing in their shoes

You’d change your life without much hesitation

But would you if you really had to choose?

So, don’t look around

Get your feet on the ground

It’s much better by far

To be just who you are

The other man’s grass is always greener

The sun shines brighter on the other side

The other man’s grass is always greener

Some are lucky, some are not

But just be thankful for what you’ve got

Many times, it seems to me

There’s someone else I’d rather be

Living in a world of make-believe

To stay in bed ’til nearly three

With nothing there to worry me

Would seem to be the life I might achieve

But deep inside, I know I’m really lucky

With happiness I’ve never known before

And just as long as you are there beside me

I know that I could ask for nothing more

Then living can start

With the love in your heart

So, with you all the time,

All the treasures I’ve longed for are mine

The other man’s grass is always greener

The sun shines brighter on the other side

The other man’s grass is always greener

Some are lucky, some are not

But I’m so thankful for what I’ve got

The other man’s grass is always greener

The sun shines brighter on the other side

The other man’s grass is always greener

Some are lucky, some are not

But I’m so thankful for what I’ve got

Petula Clark Reflections

Reflections of my life reveal

so many misty memories

Of me, as a tiny child in Wales

of mountains streams and daydreams.

I’d sing all through the days and there

in the chapel with the organ playing.

I knew from the very start

that music was in my heart to stay

with me all the way

each and every day of my life.

And though I was only six years old,

My soul was so much older

with the joy and love to lead me on

and angels on my shoulder

So now that my heart is heavy

and the world seems too demanding

I go to that other place and smile with her happy face

She’s there with me everywhere

And we breathe the sweet mountain air.

I travel a long and winding road

to all of life’s directions

and now in the mirror I can see it all in these reflections

and through all my ups and downs

disillusion, joy and wonder

we stand in the golden light

one voice reaching through the night

At last the present and the past

live together here in my heart.

Petula Clark Crazy

I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind

There was something so pleasant about that place.

Even your emotions had an echo

In so much space

And when you’re out there

Without care,

Yeah, I was out of touch

But it wasn’t because I didn’t know enough

I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?

Does that make me crazy?

Does that make me crazy?

Possibly

And I hope that you are having the time of your life

But think twice, that’s my only advice

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,

Ha ha ha bless your soul

You really think you’re in control

Well, I think you’re crazy

I think you’re crazy

I think you’re crazy

Just like me

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb

And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them

Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun

And it’s no coincidence I’ve come

And I can die when I’m done

Maybe I’m crazy

Maybe you’re crazy

Maybe we’re crazy

Probably

Uh, uh

Petula Clark Colour My World

You’ll never see a dark cloud hanging round me.

Now there is only blue skies to surround me.

There’s never been a gray day since you found me.

Everything I touch is turning to gold.

Oh, you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!

Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!

Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!

And if you colour my world just paint it with your love!

Just colour my world.

Just as long as I know you’re thinking of me,

there’ll be a rainbow always up above me.

Since I found the one who really loves me,

everything I touch is turning to gold.

So you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!

Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!

Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!

And if you colour my world just paint it with your love!

Just colour my world.

Um.

Sunshine yellow.

Orange blossums.

Laughing faces

everywhere!

Yeah!

Oh, you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!

Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!

Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!

And if you colour my world just paint it with your love.

Just colour my world.

Colour my world.

Oh, colour my world.

Colour my world!

Petula Clark The Song Of My Life

Everyone has a song, that belongs to their life

That will go on and on, through the years of their life

There’s a wonderful song, one that you brought to me

And I look on this song, as my life’s symphony

This is the song of my life

It will go on through my life

Something you said tenderly

Suddenly it’s music for me

It springs from things that we share

Only through you is it there

I walk along day and night

Singing the song of my life

I can picture the past, that we knew yesterday

Every tear, every laugh, every step of the way

I recall what was wrong, and the things that were right

And each moment belongs, to the song of my life

This is the song of my life

It will go on through my life

Something you said tenderly

Suddenly it’s music for me

It springs from things that we share

Only through you is it there

I walk along day and night

Singing the song of my life

This is the song of my life

It will go on through my life
