One little song

there’s got to be a song left to sing
everybody can’t have thought of everything
one little song that’s not been sung
one little rhyme that’s not been rung out completely yet
it’s got a little left

one little drop of falling rain
one little chance to try again
one little bird that makes it home
every now and then
one little piece of endless sky
one little taste of cherry pie
one little week in paradise
and I start thinking

there’s got to be a song left to sing
everybody can’t have thought of everything
one little note that’s not been used
one little word’s not been abused a thousand times
in a thousand rhymes

one little drop of falling rain
one little chance to try again
one little bird that makes it home
every now and then
one little piece of endless sky
one little taste of cherry pie
one little week in paradise
and I start thinking

{oooh etc., behind:}
there’s got to be a song left to sing
everybody can’t have thought of everything
one little song that’s not been sung
one little rhyme that’s not been rung out {end BVs} completely yet
until there’s nothing left
