SC 123...Words

Jenny Matlock  presents a wonderful challenge weekly.  Regular rules today not to exceed 109.  Since I am an old person, the famous songs "Words" came into my head by the Bee Gees.  I am presenting their words instead of mine...I can't get the song out of my head!

Amazing by removing one repeat course, the words are an exact count.  Why should I even try when the Bee Gees said it so well?

WORDS

Smile an everlasting smile
A smile could bring you near to me
Don't ever let me find you gone
'Cause that would bring a tear to me
This world has lost it's glory
Let's start a brand new story
Now my love right now there'll be
No other time and I can show you
How my love
Talk in everlasting words
And dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life
I'm here if you should call to me
You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say
It's only words, and words are all
I have to take your heart away

May you enjoy some "Oldies but Goodies" today.

Great song. Always enjoyed the Bee Gees. Even after Saturday Night Fever. ;o)

Thanks, Gail!

For a brief moment in time, I liked the BeeGees. I think of it as a sin of my youth and am glad I have evolved past them. Thank goodness that we all outgrow our follies. xox

I grew up with the Bee Gees and their brother Andy Gibb. Nice that you found the lyrics were almost perfect for the prompt.
