I'm grateful for a world that gave me you
And I really must give credit where credit is due:
I'm in debt to a city that put dreams within our reach
I can't forget to be thankful for the hillside and the beach
Bless the day that I met you, can't repay what I owe
And I know what I owe is long past overdue
But endless thanks...
Special thanks to you.
