If I Could Build My Whole World Around You
Oh, if I could build my whole world around you, darlin'
First I'd put heaven by your side
Pretty flowers would grow wherever you walk, honey
And over your head would be the bluest sky

Then I'd take every drop of rain
And wash all your troubles away
I'd have the whole world wrapped up in you
And that would be all right, oh yes it would

If I could build my whole world around you
I'd make your eyes the morning sun
I'd put so much love where there is sorrow
I'd put joy where there's never been love

Then I'd give my love to you
For you to keep for the rest of your life
Oh, and happiness would surely be ours
And that would be all right, oh yes it would

Doo-doo doo doo doop
Doo-doo doo doo
Doo-doo doo doo doop
Doo-doo doo doo

Oh, if I could build my whole world around you
I'd give you the greatest gift any woman could possess
And I'd step into this world you've created
And give you true love and tenderness
And there'd be something new with every tomorrow
To make this world better as days go by

That's if I could build my whole world around you
If I could build my whole world around you
Then that would be all right, oh yeah

If I could build my whole world around you
If I could build my whole world around you
Then that would be all right, oh yeah

That's if I could just build my world, baby
If I could build it, build it all around you
Then that would be all right
