HOW CAN ONE SPEAK OF SOMETHING
THAT IS DEEPER THAN THE WORD DEPTH
HOW CAN ONE TALK OF LUSCIOUS
WHEN THE WORD RICH IS IRRELEVANT
HOW CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU
WHEN IT IS MORE THAN I HAVE EVER UNDERSTOOD
WELL THANK GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO YOU THROUGH YOUR BLOOD

HOW CAN ONE SAY FOREVER
WHEN IT’S FURTHER THAN THE WORD TIME
HOW CAN I SAY FOR CERTAIN
SOMETHING HAS & ALWAYS WILL BE MINE
HOW CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU
WHEN IT’S MORE THAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN
WELL THANK GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO     YOU THROUGH YOUR BONES

        MUSIC IS THE BLOOD WIT IN ME
        IT FLAUNTS IT TAUNTS IT HAUNTS IT  WANTS ME
        MUSIC IS THE RHYTHM WITHIN ME
        IT’S A CLEAR ELISION RIGHT DOWN THROUGH MY SYSTEM

HOW CAN ONE SPEAK OF SUNSHINE
WHEN ITS BRIGHTER THAN THE WORD LIGHT
HOW CAN ONE TALK OF MYSTIC
WHEN ITS DARKER THAN THE WORD NIGHT
HOW CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU
WHEN IT'S MORE THAN I HAVE EVER CLAIMED
WELL THANK YOUR GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO YOU THROUGH YOUR VEINS

        MUSIC IS THE BLOOD WITH IN ME
        IT FLAUNTS IT TAUNTS IT HAUNTS AND WANTS ME
        MUSIC IS THE RHYTHM WITHIN ME
        IT’S A CLEAR ELISION RIGHT DOWN THROUGH MY SYSTEM

HOW CAN ONE TALK OF MUSIC
WHEN ITS SWEETER THAN THE WORD SOUND
HOW CAN ONE SPEAK  OF CLOSENESS
WHEN ITS SMOOTHER THAN THE WORD ROUND
HOW CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU
WHEN IT IS MORE THAN I HAVE EVER FOUND
WELL THANK GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO YA
TROUGH THE SOUNDS THAT I FOUND

        MUSIC IS THE BLOOD WITHIN ME
        IT HAUNTS IT FLAUNTS IT TAUNTS IT WANTS ME
        MUSIC IS THE RHYTHM WITHIN ME
        IT MOVES IT GROOVES
        IT SOOTHES RIGHT THROUGH ME
        MUSIC IS THE BLOOD WITHIN ME
        IT STEELES IT FEELS
        IT REELS RIGHT THROUGH ME
        MUSIC IS THE RYTHYM WITHIN ME
        IT’S A CLEAR ELISION RIGHT DOWN THROUGH MY SYSTEM

HOW CAN ONE SPEAK OF SOMETHING
THAT IS DEEPER THAN THE WORD DEPTH
HOW CAN ONE TALK OF LUSCIOUS
WHEN THE WORD RICH IS IRRELEVANT
HOW CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU
WHEN IT IS MORE THAN I HAVE EVER UNDERSTOOD
WELL THANK GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO YOU THROUGH YOUR BLOOD
THANK GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO YOU THROUGH YOUR BLOOD
YES, THANK GOD I AM A SINGER
CAUSE I’M GONNA TELL IT TO YOU THROUGH YOUR BLOOD

Comment:
Sometime I feel shy listening to this song. It’s the only thing I ever wrote with a real SWING FEEL. Like the swing from the 40’s. It’s not exactly home for me, but I do enjoy listening to the lilt.
I was 23 years old when I wrote these lyrics and I was so chuffed because I used the words “irrelevant” & “elision”.
I do love the English language.
