If I Had Words

20130328 001If I had words to make a day for you
I’d sing you a morning golden and new
I would make this day last for all time
Give you a night deep in moonshine

Lyrics by Scott Fitzgerald & Yvonne Keeley 

From Wikipaedia: “If I Had Words” was a 1977 UK hit song performed by Scott Fitzgerald as a duet with Yvonne Keeley.  It reached number 3 in the UK charts and number 24 in the Australian charts in 1978.  It sold more than one million copies. It was also a hit in New Zealand, Belgium, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.  The tune was taken from the main theme of the Maestoso from Saint-Saëns Symphony No.3 in C minor (Symphony with organ) with an added reggae beat. The lyrics and arrangement were by Jonathan Hodge, a prolific writer of TV jingles and movie themes, who also produced the single.   The backing was by the St Thomas More Roman Catholic School Choir in Chelsea, London.[1]
