My gift is my song, and this one's for you/ and you can tell everybody this is your song, / it may be quite simple but, now that it's done,/ i hope you don't mind/ i hope you don't mind/ that i put down in words, how wonderful life is now you're in the world./ I sat on the roof, and i kicked off the moss,/ Cause some of these verses well, they got me quite cross,/ but the sun's been kind/oh while i wrote this song,/ it's for people like you that keep it turned on,/ so excuse my forgetting/ but these things i do,/ you see i've forgotten if they're green or they're blue,/ but see the thing is, while i'm still living,/ yours are the sweetest eyes i'v ever seen./ And you can tell everybody/ this is your song/ it may be quite simple but,/ now that it's done, oh/ I hope you don't mind,/ i hope you don't mind that i put down in words/ how wonderful life is/ Now you're in the world!

    General CommentI must say that at first I hated the movie cause of all the weird angles and stuff but it was this version of this song and when I realized what it was, I thought this was one of the greatest versions of this song ever. I would sing this to Nicole Kidman anyday. Or I would sing to a girl I liked if I got the courage. Maybe one day soon.

    General Commentthis is the funniest part of the movie how satine thinks he's trying to turn her on with poetry and shes rolling on the floor. and then christian just belts the song out and it is so shockingly beautiful it leaves you breathless. i love this movie!! (i can directly relate to it too minus the whole cortisoa whore house thing)
