Sit for a while
I sit and smile
I think about you for a while
Whenever you are on my mind
I think about you till I die

When you are near me
Oh you will hear me
I will sing so sweetly

Up in my blue heaven there will be a spot
for me to sing
Everyone can sit and watch me
While I do my thing

Tell them who I'm singing for
The one I adore
Will you join me my love?

I can sit by myself with a guitar
and I can sing the blues
You should know by now
That I would give anything to be with you

When I am near you
Oh I will hear you
You will sing so sweetly

Composition: Chris Carman
(with a bridge section by Beorn Leonard)

Oscar the Band Melbourne, Australia

Oscar the Band craft pseudo-jazz, junk funk and anti-pop with a keen sense of the inappropriate. Started in late 2000 as a 2 piece featuring guitar and trumpet, we got our name with the addition of a drummer who, not owning a kit, played rubbish bins.
