"My Cherie Amour" as written by and Stevie/moy Wonder....
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour, distant as the milky way
My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street
I've been near you, but you never noticed me
My cherie amour, won't you tell me how could you ignore
That behind that little smile I wore
How I wish that you were mine
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
Maybe someday, you'll see my face amoung the crowd
Maybe someday, I'll share your little distant cloud
Oh, cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la

    General CommentI agree with the previous comment. This is one of my favorite songs ever. I do think it's ironic, however, that Stevie Wonder can write about seeing this girl in the crowd when he is blind. I can't help wondering how it made him feel to sing those words. Anyway, it's a great song.

    General CommentHow could no one comment on this song??? La la la la la la. I love this song soooo much. Everytime I hear it, I have to start it over and listen to it at least one more time. To me, this is one of his best songs. The man's a genious!

    My favorite line is "Maybe someday I'll share your little distant cloud." It sounds like he is in love with a woman who is lost in her own world and is completely oblivious to her surroundings and the fact that he watches her with loving eyes. It's so sweet because some people just don't realize how much they can mean to someone.

    General CommentYeah sfgirl82 put it perfectly.
    It's a really sad song to me because I'm in a situation like this for a long long time.
    what's really sad is that I don't think I'll ever get out of this situation..

    General CommentI love this song from the bottom of my heart....I actually feel similar to when Stevie Wonder says "In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street I've been near you, but you never notice me My Cherie Amour, won't you tell me how could you ignore That behind that little smile I wore How I wish that you were mine" Oh man...I cant get enough of this....ladies why do you have to play so hard to get?

    General CommentThe line "distant as the Milky Way" is a wonderful yet over looked line. I sometime wonder about the meaning of this comparison. Is it that he has some type of relationship with her. Like in the actual milky way, we only leave on earth. But desire to explore the rest of the it.

    just a beautiful verse.

    General Commentomfg <3 Ok. Wonder wrote this song about a woman he was fascinated with while in school at the Michigan School for the Blind in Lansing, Michigan.

    The song was originally written as "Oh My Marcia", for Stevie's girlfriend but after they fell off the lyrics were changed to cherie amour.

    General CommentThis song speaks of a man who is heartsick, in love with someone but whose love is unnoticed, or under- or unappreciated - or, more generally, the man is heartsick because he desires a relationship, but sees that the relationship is unattainable. It is probably about a romantic interest, but the song speaks to me in a different context: I am hearsick about a young girl who I wish I could adopt, but life just is not going to work out that way for us.
