A happy-go-lucky New Year's ditty about enjoying the small things in life.


Take It In
The sun is up another day
So drink a cup be on your way don't stay in all alone
Join the crowd out and about beyond your comfort zone
When you're lonely you need only grab the telephone
Loud and clear into your ear your'll hear me say

(Take It In) Saturday morning
(Take It In) Rainy or bright
(Take It In) Starlight adorning
(Take It In) A beautiful night
(Take It In) A stroll with your baby
(Take It In) The hint of romance
(Take It In) A moment that may be
(Take It In) An excellent chance to embrace

A lucky sign
So take your place, cloud number nine is fine and you just might
Find the part in every garden that's just out of sight
Open up your eyes, you'll realize the future's bright
I propose you smell the roses, taste the wine

(Take It In) A friend at the front door
(Take It In) Wearing a smile
(Take It In) Browse in the book store
(Take It In) Linger a while
(Take It In) A brand new sensation
(Take It In) You loved all along
(Take It In) Mark the occasion
(Take It In) With your favorite song

(Take It In) Dreams you imagined
(Take It In) All within reach
(Take It In) A bourbon Old Fashioned
(Take It In) Out at the beach
(Take It In) The curious notion
(Take It In) To ride a balloon
(Take It In) Take a dip in the ocean
(Take It In) Under the moon

(Take It In) A coin in the fountain
(Take It In) Hasn't a care
(Take It In) Climbing a mountain
(Take It In) Just 'cause it's there
