thank you for the music lyrics – abba

thank you for the music

i’m nothing special, in fact i’m a bit of a bore
if i tell a joke, you’ve probably heard it before
but i have a talent, a wonderful thing
’cause everyone listens when i start to sing
i’m so grateful and proud
all i want is to sing it out loud

so i say
thank you for the music, the songs i’m singing
thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
who can live without it, i ask in all honesty
what would life be?
without a song or a dance what are we?
so i say thank you for the music
for giving it to me

mother says i was a dancer before i could walk
she says i began to sing long before i could talk
and i’ve often wondered, how did it all start?
who found out that nothing can capture a heart
like a melody can?
well, whoever it was, i’m a fan

so i say
thank you for the music, the songs i’m singing
thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
who can live without it, i ask in all honesty
what would life be?
without a song or a dance what are we?
so i say thank you for the music
for giving it to me

i’ve been so lucky, i am the girl with golden hair
i wanna sing it out to everybody
what a joy, what a life, what a chance!

so i say
thank you for the music, the songs i’m singing
thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
who can live without it, i ask in all honesty
what would life be?
without a song or a dance what are we?
so i say thank you for the music
for giving it to me
