Lyrics for Love You
written by Sandy (Dedrick) and Joe Zynczak, Almitra Inc, Record Songs Inc, ASCAP
Give a little time for the child within you
Don’t be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys and
Take off your shoes and socks and run you.
Roll like a circus clown
Put away your circus frown
Ride on a rollercoaster upside down
Waltzing Matilda Kerry Loves a kinkajou
Joey catch a kangaroo hug you.
silky in a sunny sky
Reach out and hitch a ride
and float on by
Balloons down below
blooming colors of the rainbow
Red blue and yellow green I love you
Bicycles tricycles icecream candy
Lollipops popsicles licorice sticks
Solomon Grundy, Raggedy Andy
Tweedle Dum Tweedle Dee Humphrey
Cowboys and Indians
Puppydogs and sandpails
Beachballs and baseballs
and basketballs too
I love forget me nots
Fluffernutters, sugar pops
I’ll hug you and kiss you and love you.
La la la la la…
