SING ME A MELODY~by John Patrick Boutilier


(A lyric written during my John Lennon phase. Imagine an English boy’s choir doing the parenthesized bits)

 

SING ME A MELODY

Paint me a picture of people together
Living in true harmony
No classes, no races
No restricted places
Please paint that picture for me

Sing me a melody
(The world’s at peace)
Sing me a melody
(No more wars)
Sing me a melody
(We’re working together)
Please sing that song for me

Paint me a picture of children laughing
And nobody living in fear
No cheating, no stealing
No torture, no killing
Please paint that picture right here

Sing me a melody
(The children are safe)
Sing me a melody
(No more hate)
Sing me a melody
(We’re all really trying)
Please sing that song for me

Carve me a statue of eternal love
That everyone may come to see
May their hearts fill with joy
Each girl and boy
Please carve that statue for me

Sing me a melody
(Nobody’s hungry)
Sing me a melody
(No more greed)
Sing me a melody
(We’re all sharing)
Please sing that song for me

Please sing that song
(Everyone sing along)
Please sing that song for me
Please sing that song for we
