Corinne Bailey Rae: [ singing ]

“Three little birds sat on my window
And they told me I don’t need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon, so sweet
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we got it wrong, but it’s alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don’t you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down.
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sombre and lonely
Sipping tea in the bar by the road side.
(just relax, just relax)
Don’t you let those other boys fool you
Gotta love that afro hairdo.

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it’s alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change
Don’t you think it’s strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down.
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Just more than I could take, pity for pity’s sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realisz, that you don’t even have to try any longer
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down.
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down.
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Oh, you’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.”
