"Now that must rate as one of the worst lyrics I've ever read. Is the tune as bad?"
"It is bloody awful."

You idiots have no idea what you're saying. Since you've obviously never heard the original, you have no right to criticize it! The tune is fantastic; the song is poignant. Replace the word "him" with "her", which was the original version; it was changed from "her" to "him" because it was written for a male singer but recorded by Anne Murray.

If you ever heard the original, by Gene MacLellan himself, you would see exactly what I'm saying.

This is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Think! before you speak.
