Fairfield CP School - 'You are my world of beauty' by Katie & Jake from Y5

You are my sunshine on dark gloomy night!
You are my friend that never leaves my side!
You are my world of beauty!

Never leave my side! Never say goodbye!
I need to tell you something.
You are my world of beauty.

The I walk alone, all sad and forlorn.
You always make me smile!
Laugh, giggle, smile anything!
Just to make me happy because you are my world of beauty!

You never leave my side!
You never say goodbye!
I need to tell you something
You are my world of beauty.

Never go x 2
Never leave x 2
You are my world of beauty!

You never leave my side!
You never say goodbye!
I need to tell you something
You are my world of beauty.
