Fell down on both knees
You were young
Bones still soft
Legs felt numb
Oh, how those sparrows sang for you.
So you grew up
Isolated pub
Had some birch
Had some love
Oh, God was watching over you.
Oh, how those sparrows sang for you.

Oooooooooohhhhhhhhh
Oooooooooohhhhhhhhh…

You witnessed a man
A holy man
Touched your head
With his gentle hands
Oh, God was watching over you.
Lived in a house
In Birmingham
Preachers self
Lord's plan
Oh, God was watching over you.
Oh, how those sparrows sang for two.

Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhh
Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhh…

When you arrived
The carriage had left
Near the preacher's cell
Your own love
Oh, God was watching over you.
Wedding bells rang (wedding bells ring)
The church choir sings (church choir sings)
Gospel sells (Ooohhh)
Beautiful world (beautiful world)
Oh such a melody calling to
Oh how it reminds me of you

Ooooooooooooooohhhhhhh
Ooooooooooooooohhhhhhh…
