Sweet January: Video- Lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie



"Sweet January" written by Buffy Sainte-Marie.

Taken from the album "Sweet America". "Sweet America" was the twelfth studio album by Buffy Sainte-Marie originally recorded in 1975 but not released until February 1976. It was her last before retiring from music to work on Sesame Street and in education. The album was dedicated to the American Indian Movement.


It's three in the morning
and you've left the party
with another young lady on your arm
and all my tomorrow's have died in my stories
and heaven has lost all its charm

Oh, I'm not gonna sing about love anymore
and I'm finished with the dreams of the heart
Our gentle December in ol' California
has taken its toll from the start

Oh, lovin' is fine -
for the lucky, the blessed, and the wise!
Oh, but this love of mine
has only put tears in my eyes.

My heart is a dancer on little brown feet,
your eyes are the music she hears.
Your love is the answer to all of my dreams
and your shoulder to all of my tears.
And all of my songs that I wrote for your birthday
like babies abandon their lives
and sweet January is pullin and tuggin
my life down the streets in your eyes

Oh, lovin' is fine -
for the lucky, the blessed, and the wise!
Oh, but this love of mine
has only put tears in my eyes.

What present have you prepared for your parents and friends? In fact, gifts are not the most important thing. What matters is to stay with people you love and enjoy the holiday. By the way, if you lover is a guild wars 2 fan, you can present him some guild wars 2 gold. I know a reliable store where you can buy cheap guild wars 2 gold. Do not miss the oppotunity. Have a nice day
