​Write One for Me

This song is by Ringo Starr and appears on the album Ringo Rama (2003).

A young man strumming his guitar
In the corner of the bar
Singing 'bout a broken heart
For hours and hours

By closing time, I face the fact
That if I had a gift like that
I know that I could win her back
But there's some things I can't do
So now it's up to you

Write one for me
Put the perfect words together
Write one for me
A melody to last forever
I don't have the song, so if you please
Tell her she's the right one for me

It does no good for you to play
A pretty song like "Yesterday" (Why she had to go)
'Cause that's not what I need to say
To get her to love me

And I'm too scared to tell her so
So if you'd be my Cyrano
And send to her a tune, I know
That she would send her mind
Take a little time and

Write one for me
Put the perfect words together
Write one for me
A melody to last forever
I don't have the song, so if you please
Tell her she's the right one for me

If I could write a poem, I would sing one
But I don't have a pen I can depend on
I can't come up with a single line
So would you write a song
And tell her that it's mine, all mine

Write one for me
Put the perfect words together
Write one for me
A melody to last forever
I don't have the song, so if you please
Tell her she's the right one for me
Tell her she's the right one for me
