Subject: Lyr Add: LOVE YOU (from The Free Design)

I heard this song recently in, I think, a Toyota commercial, and was intrigued by it. (There are more complete recordings at YouTube, also on Spotify.) I was surprised to learn that the song and the group that recorded it are 45+ years old. These lyrics are copied from The Free Design's web site, with spelling and punctuation corrected by me. The printed lyrics don't do justice to the contrapuntal style of singing.


LOVE YOU
(Sandy and Joe Zynczak/J. A. Zynczak, Inc./ASCAP)
As sung by The Free Design on "...Sing for Very Important People," 1970.

Give a little time for the child within you.
Don't be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
And take off your shoes and socks, and run, you.
La, la, la?

Give a little time for the child within you.
Don't be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
And take off your shoes and socks, and run, you.
La, la, la?

Run through the meadow and scare up the milking cows.
Run down the beach kicking clouds of sand.
Walk a windy weather day; feel your face blow away.
Stop and listen; love you.

Roll like a circus clown; put away your circus frown.
Ride on a roller coaster upside down.
Waltzing Matilda, Carey loves a kinkajou.
Joey catch a kangaroo; hug you.

Dandelion, milkweed, silky on a sunny sky,
Reach out and hitch a ride and float on by.
Balloons down below catching colors of the rainbow,
Red, blue and yellow-green; I love you.

Bicycles, tricycles, ice cream, candy,
Lollypops, Popsicles, licorice sticks,
Solomon Grundy, Raggedy Andy,
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, home free.

Cowboys and Indians, puppy dogs and sand pails,
Beach balls and baseballs and basketballs, too.
I love forget-me-nots, fluffernutters, sugar pops.
I'll hug you and kiss you and love you.
La, la, la? Love you.

I was wrong; it was a Delta commercial that I saw recently, not Toyota. (I saw it again just now.)
