AMY SKY / BETH NIELSEN CHAPMAN / OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN
"I Will Take Care Of You"
(Dave Pickell / Amy Sky)

On a September afternoon, in nineteen-sixty-one,
A baby girl's first cry ran out - a new life had begun.
Her mother rocked her in her arms, and she kissed the tiny brow.
She said 'Darling I'm just as scared as you, but I promise you somehow...'

[Chorus:]
I will take care of you
The very best that I can
With all of the love here in my heart
And all of the strength in my hands
Your every joy I'll share
For every tear I'll be there my whole life through
I will take care of you

On a September afternoon in nineteen-eighty-five
That little girl had grown into a beautiful young bride
And she turned to the man who held her hand
In front of the waiting crowd
They smiled at eachother as they spoke,
And this was their wedding vow... And they said...

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
On a September afternoon in nineteen-eighty-nine
A Girl waited by a hospital bed, never leaving her mother's side
She said 'Mama, why don't you close your eyes - try to get some rest.
It's my turn to take care of you...
I learned from the best, I will take care of you'

[Chorus]

With all of the love here in my heart
And all of the strength in my hands

On a September afternoon in nineteen-ninety-one
A baby girl's first cry rang out - a new life had begun
