“I Don’t Need A Valentine”

I love the whole world, Oh yes!, I really do…

but most of all I love you, and you, and you and you.

When I see de flowers bloom and I feel deep their perfume,

that is love to me..and I say: The world is fine

I don’t need a Valentine

When I hear a baby’s cry and a mothe’s lullaby,

that is love to me…and I say: The world is kind

I don’t need a Valentine

When I look up to the sky, sunshine at day, moonlight at night,

that is love to me…and I say: The world is mine

I don’t need a Valentine

The fragrance of a flower, the singing of a bird,

The smile of a child, the twinkling of the stars,

The colors of the rainbow, the whistling of the wind,

The whiteness of the snow, the greenness of the grass,

The breeze of the sea, the blue of the sky.

All of this is love to me and I keep it in my mind

I don’t need a Valentine

So, I love the whole world, Oh yes! I really do…

but most of all I love you, and you, and you, and you.
