Donovan

Donovan (born Donovan Philips Leitch, 10 May 1946) is a Scottish singer, songwriter and guitarist. Initially labelled as an imitator of Bob Dylan, Donovan quickly developed an eclectic and distinctive style that blended folk, jazz, pop, psychedelia, and world music (notably calypso). He has variously lived in Scotland, London, California and Ireland, and currently lives with his family in County Cork in Ireland. more »

From the album donovan

All you have to do is write a song
Not too smart now and not too long
Easy to listen to hard to forget
Then we'll cut it and press it
Release it while the words are still wet
All it really takes is to link a few lines
Hang em' on a hook and repeat a few lines
The words need not be committed
Though you'll be if it flops
So we're pickin' out your straight jacket
For the Top of the Pops
When I sing my song
My song of songs
I want the whole wide world
To sing along
Sing for me
I'll sing for you
I want the whole wide world
To sing it too
All they really want is
A witty little ditty
For the Broken hearted kids in
The broken down cities
Make it sort of simple
And make it sort of pretty
And take your time but hurry
'cause the radio is hungry for your song
Sing my song
My song of songs
I want the whole wide world
To sing along
Sing for me
I'll sing for you
I want the whole wide world
To sing it too
