SWEETER THAN SPRINGTIME

We are already through a rather cold winter of 2016 and it will soon be “Spring” again. Hundreds of songs dedicated to this “beautiful season” have been written and enjoyed by music-lovers all over the World.

Strauss wrote about it, Chopin wrote about it and being essentially a “love-song” I decided that a Lankan Composer should write one too. Written & dedicated many years ago, to a “few” girl-friends of my own past, here are the lyrics. Hope my elanka readers enjoy it.

SWEETER THAN SPRINGTIME.

You’re sweeter than Springtime
And as lovely as a rose
You’re an angel from heaven
That’s why I love you, I suppose
You do these funny things to me
And, as everybody knows
You’re sweeter than Springtime
And as lovely as a rose.

You’re sweeter than Springtime
And as.lovely, in the Fall
You’re an angel from heaven
You’re my Sri Lankan “living doll”
You do these funny things to me
And, as everybody knows
You’re sweeter than Springtime
And as lovely as a rose.

Lyrics & Music by Desmond (Kelly from Colombo).
