    (Queen, a long time family member, now an ancestor, loved this song sung by Aretha. I had not found a version by anyone else who came close to Aretha's, till now. En-Joy in her memory.)



    Skylark, have you anything to say to me?
    Won't you tell me where my love can be?
    Is there a meadow in the mist
    Where someone's waiting to be kissed?

    Skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring?
    Where my heart can go journeying
    Over the shadows and the rain
    To a blossomed covered lane

    And in your lonely flight
    Oh, haven't you heard the music in the night?
    Wonderful music, yes, faint as a will o' the wisp
    Crazy as a loon, sad as a gypsy serenading the moon

    Skylark, oh I don't know if you can find these things
    Oh but my heart, my heart is riding on your wings
    So if you see them anywhere
    Won't you lead me there?
