Harry Nilsson – This Is All I Ask lyrics

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 girl, walk a little slower, when you walk by me
Lingering sunset, 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
Then I will stay younger than spring
