Bo Diddley Sings Stars on the Beach


To Skyward

Tonight of baby why
not chase me through the sky

It’s not so high
for love like mine

With eyes upon the stars
One wish and there we are

It’s only pride
that’s down by flight

So ... fly

For heaven’s a smile made out in body and mind
All love for all time, cool with wonder why

Lips flutter now they sing
The spreading of the wings

Takes more than height
To reach the sky

So ... smile

For now is the time for you and me on high
A place in the light on high ... on high ...
