Horace Silver and lyric Marion Cowings


"You Happened My Way"

it was hip to pretend I didnt care
is was cool to free
show the girl who's in charge
tell the world how to be
nothing that I had
could make me glad
I was always sad

and then you happened my way
the odds on romance
dont pay I'd say
thats when you happened my way
thanks for the ride
just when the bottom feel out
you came to see what was left of me
It's cuz you happened my way

never mind what all my girlfriends are saying
lots of people try to tell me that Im wrong
they dont know that Ive been searching oh so long
for someone who
thinks for himself
knows love is wealth

you put the ball into play
you threw the change up so well that day
I'm glad you happened my way
