Lyrics 

(Musixmatch)

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day

My cherie amour, distant as the milky way

My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore

You’re the only girl my heart beats for

How I wish that you were mine

In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street

I’ve been near you, but you never noticed me

My cherie amour, won’t you tell me how could you ignore

That behind that little smile I wore

How I wish that you were mine

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

Maybe someday, you’ll see my face among the crowd

Maybe someday, I’ll share your little distant cloud

Oh, cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore

You’re the only girl my heart beats for

How I wish that you were mine

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

    Fun Fact.
    Mr. Morris hates the country that paid him millions and now lives in Ghana. He has been a star since he was 11 and STILL does not appreciate the country that allowed him that opportunity. I hope I never hear his name again. ,,,, Get Woke, Go Broke. Good riddance.

    Smokey, Ya screwed up when you signed him.

    Stevie Wonder is one of the best composers and musicians ever known. His songs are all catchy and so diversified! Some rock and roll, some blues, some jazzy, funk,reggae, you know it. A favorite of all ages young and old.
