This is just
A little samba
Built upon
A single note
Other notes
Are sure to follow
But the root
Is still that note
Now this new note
Is the consequence
Of the one
We've just
Been through

As I'm bound to be
The unavoidable
Consequence of you
There's so many people
Who can talk
And talk and talk
And just say nothing
Or nearly nothing

I have used up
All the scale
I know
And at the end
I've come
To nothing
I mean nothing
So I come back
To my first note
As I must
Come back to you

I will pour
Into that one note
All the love
I feel for you
Any one who wants
The whole show show
He will
Find himself
With no show
Better play
The note you know
