Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
whoowhoowhoo
Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooobabyooosaid ooo

And the days go by
like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, baby
Nothin' else mattered

He was no morethan a baby then
Well he seemed broken hearted
something within him
But the momentthat I first laid
Eyesonhimall alone
On the edge ofseventeen

Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
whoowhoowhoo
Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooobabyooosaid ooo

I went todaymaybe I will go again
tomorrow
And the music there it was hauntingly
familiar
And I see you doing
what I try to do for me
With the words from a poet
and the voice from a choir
And a melodynothing else mattered

Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
whoowhoowhoo
Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooobabyooosaid ooo

The cloudsnever expect it
when it rains
But the sea changes colours
but the sea
Does not change
And sowith the slowgraceful flow
of age
I went forthwith an age old
desireto please
On the edge ofseventeen

Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
whoowhoowhoo
Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooobabyooosaid ooo

Well then suddenly
there was no oneleft standing
In the hallyeah, yeah
In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
Oh I went searchin' for an answer
Up the stairsand down the hall
Not to find an answer
just to hear the call
Of a nightbirdsinging
come awaycome away

Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
whoowhoowhoo
Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooobabyooosaid ooo

Well I hear you in the morning
and I hear you
At nightfall
sometime to be near you
Is to be unableto hear you
my love
I'm a few years older than you
are (I'm a few years older than you) my love

Just like the white winged dove
sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooo babyooosaid (repeat
