Quincy Jones – Strawberry Letter 23 lyrics
Rain or shine sleet or snow
You're the reason why I ain't gon' go
Cause I'm playing mine high and low
Ain't afraid to let the whole world know

Hello, my love I heard a kiss from you
Red magic satin playing near too (near too)
All through the morning rain I gaze
The sun doesn't shine (doesn't shine)
Rainbows and waterfalls run through my mind (run through my mind)

In the garden I see west purple showers, bells and tea
Orange birds and river cousins dressed in green
(Cousin dress in green)
Pretty music I hear so happy and loud (happy and loud)
Blue flower echo from a cherry cloud, baby

A present from you
Strawberry letter twenty two (22)
A present from you
Strawberry letter twenty two (22)

Rain or shine sleet or snow
You're the reason why I ain't gon' go
Cause I'm playing mine high and low
Ain't afraid to let the whole world know

Feel sunshine sparkle pink and blue (hey yeah)
Playgrounds will laugh if you try to ask
(You try to ask)
Is it cool? is it cool?
If you arrive and don't see me (Yeah)
I'm going to be with my baby (my baby)
I am free, I am free

Flying in her arms (her arm)
Over the sea (Over the sea)
Stained window, yellow candy screen (Candy screen)
See speaker of kite velvet roses diggin' freedom flight
(Oh freedom flight)
Diggin' freedom flight (freedom flight)

A present from you
Strawberry letter twenty two (22)
A present from you
Strawberry letter twenty two (22)

Rain or shine sleet or snow
You're the reason why I ain't gon' go
Cause I'm playing mine high and low
Ain't afraid to let the whole world know

A present from you
Strawberry letter twenty two (22)
A present from you
Strawberry letter twenty two (22)

Rain or shine sleet or snow
You're the reason why I ain't gon' go
Cause I'm playing mine high and low
Ain't afraid to let the whole world know
