I’ve just reached a place
Where the willow don’t bend
There’s not much more to be said
It’s the top of the end

Hazel

Hazel, dirty-blonde hair
I wouldn’t be ashamed to be seen with you anywhere
You got something I want plenty of
Ooh, a little touch of your love

Something There Is About You

Somethin’ there is about you
That strikes the match in me
Is it the way your body moves
Or is it the way your hair blows free?

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.

You got me under your wing
And the way you walk and the way you talk
Feel I could almost sing
