​Ella May

This song is by Mohair and appears on the album Small Talk (2006).

May I introduce you to the world;
May it be your playground.
It's a roller coaster ride; if you hold tight,
It passes you by.
Don't let folks get you down.
I won't let you down.

Ella May,
I love you every day.
Here's what I'm tryin' to say:
You're the "yes" to my yesterday,
The lovely Ella May.

You're only 8 pound 5, but you're never more
Alive in your lifetime. (Ooh,)
(The lovely Ella)
Smile and the world will smile with you, and (May)
You will be all right. (Ooh,)
(The lovely Ella)
The higher up the ladder, the more snakes (May)
There are who will charm you.
(Sssss)
Take the diamonds in the rough with the smooth and (diamonds in the rough with the smooth)
They slither away.
Don't let them think of you (Woo-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Like you don't want them to. (Woo-ooh-ooh-ooh)

Ella May,
I love you every day.
Here's what I'm tryin' to say:
You're the "yes" to my yesterday.
I love you,
The lovely Ella May.

There'll be a thing or two
That you won't want to do.

Ella May,
I love you every day.
Here's what I'm tryin' to say:
You're the "yes" to my yesterday,
A lovely
Ella May. (Ella May.)
From cradle to the dark o' the bay, (From cradle to the dark o' the bay,)
There's a piece o' my heart on its way. (There's a piece o' my heart on its way.)
You're the "yes" to my yesterday. (You're the "yes" to my yesterday.)
I love you,
The lovely Ella May.
