Wildflower

Wildflower

The O'Jays

Oh oh yeah, what a song, what a song to sing
And I’m singin’ my song, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing a song, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

She faced the hardest time you would imagine
And many times her eyes fought back the tears, yeah, yeah
And when her youthful world was about to fall in

Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears
And a sorrow, no one hears, still rings in midnight silence in her ear

Let her cry for she’s a lady, let her dream, she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her, she’s a free and gentle flower growin’ wild

And if by chance I should hold her, hold her
Let me, let me hold her for a little while
And if I had but one possession
I would take her from the garden to be mine, oh, oh, yeah, yeah

Be careful how you touch her for she might awaken
And sleep is the only freedom that the little girl know
And when you walk into her eyes, she won’t believe

The way she’s always payin’ for a debt she never, never owed
And the silent wind still blows but only she can hear
And though she goes

Let her cry, ah, for she’s a lady, let her dream, she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her, she’s a free and gentle flower growin’ wild

Let her cry, cry for she’s a lady
Let her dream and dream and dream and dream, she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her, she’s a free and gentle flower growin’ wild

She is, she is, she’s a free and gentle flower, yeah, yeah
I’ma tell the world about my wildflower, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Growin’, growin’, growin’, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hoo, hoo, ooh, ooh, hoo, hoo, ooh, yeah, yeah
Growin’, growin’, growin’, yeah, growin’ wild

She’s a flower growin’, growin’ wild
She’s a flower growin’, growin’ wild
She’s a flower growin’, growin’ wild
She’s a flower growin’ wild

Wild, wild, growin’ wild
Wild, wild, la la la, growin’ wild
Wild, wild, la la la, growin’ wild
Wild, wild, la la la, growin’ wild
