musical score description
[Verse 1]In the house of “nobody cares”,Little “Miss No-one” lived with her pray’rs;Never knowing love’s tenderness,She longed to feel, someone’s caress;One day love came her way;And the whole world heard her say:[Chorus]“My Daddy Long Legs,You made my life worth while;My Daddy Long Legs,You taught me how to smile,When I saw your shadow on the wall,The one that the sun beams drew;My daddy Long legs, I fell in love with you.”[Verse 2]Who turned all the dark clouds to blue,My daddy Long Legs, no one but you;Who dried all the tears in my eyes,Who made the sun, shine in the skies?Ev’ry pray’r that I say; I will always end this way:(to Chorus)
