Room with a view

Room with a view I'll never forget the day we met, my neck still hurts from turning my head, First thing I know you were looking back, You almost gave me a heart attack I turned the corner and there you were, looking all shy and so demure I knew right then you were made for me Isn't it funny how life can be? Chorus 1 Who cares about a room with a view? When I can stay here and look at you! Who needs a view of Montserrat? When I can see that you're looking back Who cares about a room with a view? When I can stay here and look at you Who needs a view of Monaco? When were here alone with the lights down low! (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) You and I have been all around the world, Only been with you 'cause you're my kind of girl Don't want to be with no one but you Who cares about a room with a view? (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) Years gone by and you still turn my head, I'd still rather look at you instead I'll look at you till all fades to black, as long as I see you're looking back Chorus 2 Who cares about a room with a view? When I can stay here and look at you Who needs a view of Iguazu?* When I can stay here and look at you Who wants to see all of Cancun? When we're all alone here in our room! (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) Years gone by and you still turn my head, I'd still rather look at you instead I'll look at you till all fades to black, as long as I see you're looking back (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) (you know that it's true yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) repeat and fade to zero *Iguazu pronounced Ee gwa zoo Series of waterfalls bordering Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil John Derek Hamilton June 12,2019
