Verse 1 No New Year's Day to celebrate No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away No first of spring, no song to sing In fact here's just another ordinary day Repeat Riff C Verse 2 No April rain, no flowers bloom; No wedding Saturday within the month of June But what it is, is something true Made up of these three words that I must say to you Riff D Chorus
