Petula Clark Two Songs

PETULA CLARK

Music is very inspiring for me, also pop music and especially with what I grew up. During the day, in the evening, and sometimes at night, the radio was on, until Daddy pressed the power button when I was already in a sleep land.

You may remember the radio stations Radio Veronica and Radio North Sea, from boats on sea, which were favorites.

 

One of my first favorites was the song Downtown by Petula Clark.

Later I listened to other songs sung by her.

I would like to highlight two of these on this website.

From the album Ultimate Petula Clark, sometimes it is called the Pink Album, released in 2003.

 

Text is very appropriate for this period in which we now live.

And I love both the melodies, I like this kind of pop music with a certain rhythm and intention.

 

I am not going to make a story about this good singer, I just put the link of her website, there you can find all relevant information.

And I hope that it will also help everyone who reads and listens to this to keep going and hold on.

Love and Blessings.

Above I consider a good link about the composers of these two songs.

Jackie Trent and Tony Hatch.

 

Order:

Song: don’t give up, with You Tube link top.

Song: colour my world, with You Tube link bottom.

With the Dutch version there is Dutch translation of lyrics.

Don’t give up – singer Petula Clark

 

When love seems to get you down
When you can’t turn around and run
You’ve got to stop and face the fact
That the heartaches have just begun
Because you need love, you need love
Keep on till you know what you’ve won yeah!

CHORUS:
Don’t give up, don’t let it get you down
Don’t give up, don’t think of leaving town
Don’t give up, don’t run away from it
Love will be yours in the end, my friend

When someone is on your mind
And you can’t find the words to say
Don’t put off until tomorrow, my friend
What you know you’ve gotta do today
Because you need love, you need love
And in time you’ll discover the way yeah!

 

CHORUS:
Don’t give up, don’t let it get you down
Don’t give up, don’t think of leaving town
Don’t give up, don’t run away from it
Love will be yours in the end, my friend

 

You know you need love, you need love
Keep on till you know what you’ve won yeah!

CHORUS:
Now don’t give up, don’t let it get you down
Don’t give up, don’t think of leaving town
Don’t give up, don’t run away from it
Love will be yours in the end, my friend

Now don’t give up, don’t let it get you down
Don’t give up, don’t think of leaving town
Don’t give up, don’t run away from it
Love will be yours in the end, my friend

FADE
Now don’t give up, don’t let it get you down

 

Colour My World – singer Petula Clark

You’ll never see a dark cloud hanging round me.
Now there is only blue skies to surround me.
There’s never been a gray day since you found me.
Everything I touch is turning to gold.

So, you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!
Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!
And if you colour my world just paint it with your love!
Just colour my world.

Just as long as I know you’re thinking of me,
there’ll be a rainbow always up above me.
Since I found the one who really loves me,
everything I touch is turning to gold.

So you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!
Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!
And if you colour my world just paint it with your love!
Just colour my world.
Hmm.

Sunshine yellow.
Orange blossoms.
Laughing faces
everywhere!
Yeah!

So, you can colour my world with sunshine yellow each day!
Oh, you can colour my world with happiness all the way!
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!
And if you colour my world just paint it with your love.
Just colour my world.
Colour my world.
Oh, colour my world.
World!
