    ı've been alive forever
    and ı wrote the very first song
    ı put the words and the melodies together
    ı'm music and ı write the songs

    ı write the songs that make the whole world sing
    ı write the songs of love and special things
    ı write the songs that make those young girls cry
    ı write the songs, ı write the songs

    my home lies deep within you
    and ı've got my own place in your soul
    and with such good friends when ı look out through your eyes
    ı am young again, even though ı'm very old

    ı write the songs that make the whole world sing
    ı write the songs of love and special things
    ı write the songs that make those young girls cry
    ı write the songs, ı write the songs

    oh my music makes you dance
    and gives you spirit to take a chance
    and ı wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
    music fills your heart
    well, that's a real fine place to start
    ıt's from me, it's for you, it's from you, it's through me
    ıt's a world wide symphony

    (ı write the songs)
    ı write the songs that make the whole world sing
    ı write the songs of love and special things
    ı write the songs that make those young girls cry
    ı write the songs, ı write the songs

    ı write the songs that make the whole world sing
    ı write the songs of love and special things
    ı write the songs that make those young girls cry
    ı write the songs, ı write the songs

    ı am music, and ı write the songs
