This Is All I Ask

by Gordon Jenkins

As I approach the prime of my life,
I find I have the time of my life
Learning to enjoy at my leisure
All the simple pleasures
And so I happily concede:
This is all I ask;
This is all I need.

Beautiful girls
Walk a little slower when you walk by me.
Lingering sunsets
Stay a little longer with the lonely sea.
Children everywhere
When you shoot at bad men shoot at me.
Take me to that strange enchanted land
Grownups seldom understand.

Wandering rainbows
Leave a bit of color for my heart to own.
Stars in the sky
Make my wish come true before the night has flown.
And let the music play as long
As there's a song to sing
And I will stay younger than Spring.

I'd love to share with you regarding Harry Nilsson, his life and his music.
