Bryan Johnson - Looking high high high
Tekst en muziek: John Watson
(1960)






I once had a love and oh
I loved her very dearly
She told me she loved me so
I thought she spoke sincerely
But one day, away
I found that she had flown
And off to find that love of mine
I set alone



Looking high high high
Looking low low low
Wond’ring why why why
Did she go go go
For if I I I
Don’t find my love, I know
I shall die die die
’Cause I love her so



I journeyed across the sea
I sought her with devotion
Though where she would really be
I’d not the slightest notion
But so bright the light
Of love within me shone
I knew full well, what e’er befell
I must go on



Looking high high high
Looking low low low
Wond’ring why why why
Did she go go go
For if I I I
Don’t find my love, I know
I shall die die die
’Cause I love her so



To east over desert sands
To west where grass is greener
I asked in a dozen lands
But none had ever seen her
It was clear, I fear
My quest was all in vain
So I departed, sad at heart
For home again



Looking high high high
Looking low low low
Wond’ring why why why
Did she go go go
For if I I I
Don’t find my love, I know
I shall die die die
’Cause I love her so



But when I arrived, all brown
And tanned by wind and weather
You sure could have knocked me down
With the proverbial feather
She stood there, so fair
And sweetly she confessed
That she’d been wrong and all along
She loved me best



I looked high high high
I looked low low low
Wond’ring why why why
Did she go go go
Now that I I I
Have found my love, I know
Till I die die die
I will love her so



Looking high high high
Looking low low low
Wond’ring why why why
Did she go go go
For if I I I
Don’t find my love, I know
I shall die die die
’Cause I love her so
