Verse:
A song bird yearns to sing a love song,
The ros - es yearn just for the dew,
The whole world's yearn - ing for the sun -shine,
I have a yearn - ing too.

Chorus:
Yearn - ing just for you,
That's all I do my dear.
Learn - ing why I'm blue,
I wish that you were near.
Smiles have turned to tears,
Days have turned to years.
Yearn - ing just for you,
I hope you're yearn - ing too.
