Song for the Asking
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and I will play
So sweetly, I'll make you smile

This is my tune for the taking
Take it, don't turn away
I've been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I've been sad
Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking

Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold inside

Hm

Take it, don't turn away
I've been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I've been sad
Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking

Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold inside

The only thing that is wrong in this song is that is too short. It's so beautiful that you want more from that beauty

skateordizzy

I agree with you that it seems really short , more I listen , the more the simplicity of it is part of why I love it

Daseph J. Edwards

The brevity is a part of its beauty. Just like fireworks or falling cherry blossoms in spring.

,my fav song Paul ever wrote

Norfolk Enchants

People go on about Art's voice, which was undoubtedly something special. But Paul Simon had such a sweet voice & that fact often gets overlooked.

Avi Soncino

Agreed. They both have different styles. Art’s voice is more “professional” and grown up sounding, and Paul’s is very innocent and boyish.

Tildi Bu

I prefer Paul's voice

Larry Heller

Not to mention being an incredible songwriter and a pretty fair fingerstyle acoustic guitar player!

Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and I will play
So sweetly, I'll make you smile

This is my tune for the taking
Take it, don't turn away
I've been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I've been sad
Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking

Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold inside
