Here are the lyrics of the song: “Mary In The Morning“
(from “That’s The Way It Is” soundtrack)
When through the sleepy haze I see her lying there
Soft as the rain that falls on summerflowers
Warm as the sunlight shining on her head
I want to take her in my arms,
The ache is there so deep inside meNothing’s quite as pretty as Mary in the morning
Chasing the rainbow in her dreams so far away
And when she turns to touch me I kiss her fingers so softly
And then my Mary wake to love and love againAnd Mary’s there in summer days or stormy weather
She doesn’t care how right or wrong the love we share,
We share togetherNothing’s quite as pretty as Mary in the evening
Kissed by the shade of night and starlight in her hair
And as we walk, I hold her close beside me
All our tomorrows for a lifetime we will share
