cetmst Lyr Req: Swans of Swansea (9) RE: Lyr Req: SWANS OF SWANSEA 09 Feb 05


Still searching. I have part of the song on a cassette transcribed from some radio program and have difficulty making out some of the words:

-------within, within, we look for the swan within.

All of the swans of Swansea began as a feathery lump,
Waffleing (?) down to the river to swim, to walk and to jump(?).
All of the swans of Swansea were burst from an egg in Spring,
All of swans of Swansea and this is the song that they sing.

Our souls were born for flight, yet our dream as we begin
What is the thing that makes us soar (?)
We look for the swan within, within, we look for the swan within.

All of the swans of Swansea were feathered by feathery bone (?)
Finally given new plumage alive with the light of the morn (moon?)
All of the swans of Swansea were lifted aloft to wing
All of the swans of Swansea have taught themselves to sing

Our souls were born for slight, yet our dream as we begin
What is the thing that makes us soar
We look for the swan within, within, we look for the swan within.


Lovely female singer whose voice I don't recognize Would appreciate name of song, writer, singer and correct lyrics
