Lyrics :


Here is my song for the asking 
Ask me and I will play 
So sweetly, I'll make you smile 

This is my tune for the taking 
Take it, don't turn away 
I've been waiting all my life 

Thinking it over, I've been sad 
Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad 
To change my ways for the asking 

Ask me and I will play 
All the love that I hold inside
