Lyrics

Suprise

Written By: Tom Moore, Laura Lee Styles, Dave Williams


Woman:
My job in Chicago paid well with lots of perks
I loved my new condo and enjoyed my work.
But I was still looking for a man just for me
When I took a vacation to Utah to ski.

Man:
I bought a nice little ranch by working and saving
And earn a good living from cattle I’m raisin’.
In the mountains of Utah, I’ve found a great life.
I sure would like to share it with a good wife.

Both:
When I saw you at the ski lodge, I’ll never forget.
I felt a special attraction when we first met.
We dated for every reason we could think of.
By the time we parted, I knew it was true love.

Man:
I went to Chicago. You took me everywhere.
But then you suggested I should soon move there.
Thinkin’ of my home, I couldn’t stand the contrast.
I left knowing our long distance romance can’t last.

Woman:
I just can’t imagine giving up the things I had.
To live way out in the mountains would be so bad.
No friends, no shopping, no clubbing, no shows - no way!
Though I love him, long distance never works, they say.

Both:
I sold my home and quit my job to be with you,
Said goodbye to all my friends to live with you.
I have to be with you, I’ve come to realize,
Him:
So I’m flying to Chicago as a great big surprise!
Her:
I’m flying to Utah as a great big surprise!
Both:
Yes, I’m flying to your place as a great big surprise!

Him:
It’ll be a really big surprise!

I'm So Grateful

Written By: Tom Moore, Laura Lee Styles, Dave Williams


He was old enough to be my father.
We had a May-December romance.
The courtship was short and wonderful.
He stole my heart at the very first glance.

People said I was a trophy wife,
I didn’t love him, said quite a few;
But we both knew the truth:
Our love was sure and true.

Chorus
Our love was so very dear.
We had some good times
We had great times.
I’m so grateful for these last few years.

I wasn’t his first love,
But I was his very last.
I wasn’t the mother of his children,
But we didn’t live in the past.

Chorus

We always knew he would go first.
Now that he has gone,
My sorrow is at its worst,
But I wouldn’t trade places with anyone on earth.

Chorus (variation)
Our love was so very dear.
We had some good times
We had great times.
I’m so grateful for his last few years.

I’m so grateful for your last few years.

It Has To Be You

Written By: Tom Moore, Laura Lee Styles


My logical mind
tells me that now is the right time.
It’s with you I belong,
No body else will ever come along.

Then I look in my soul,
I see how our hearts entwine.
I know that I love you.
I’m sure that now is the time.

It has to be you.
No one else will do
I’m sure that it’s you.
It’s got to be you!

Our wonderful friends and fam’ly
agree we are ready to be
united as husband and wife,
married for the rest of our life.

Then I look in my soul,
I see how our hearts entwine.
I know that I love you.
I’m sure that now is the time.

It has to be you.
No one else will do
I’m sure that it’s you.
It’s got to be you!

We’ll be partners and a team,
As you and I have always dreamed,
Be each other’s best friend
Faithful and true all the way to the end.

Then I look in my soul,
I see how our hearts entwine.
I know that I love you.
I’m sure that now is the time.

It has to be you.
No one else will do
I’m sure that it’s you.
It’s got to be you!
It’s just got to be you!

Dearly beloved,
We are gathered here today
To bless your union
And start you on your way.

Before you leave us,
These four wishes we make.
If you take them to heart,
You won’t make a mistake.

Celebrate yesterday.
You have been its shining star.
Appreciate your life,
It has made you who you are.

Look forward to your life.

Keep your outlook bright.

Enjoy every day.
Do the best you can do
To make this life happy
For the two of you.

Both yourself and each other.
Each is important
As you will discover.

A fifth wish I make
Your whole life through.
May God bless you!
May God bless you!

Woman:
My job in Chicago paid well with lots of perks
I loved my new condo and enjoyed my work.
But I was still looking for a man just for me
When I took a vacation to Utah to ski.

Man:
I bought a nice little ranch by working and saving
And earn a good living from cattle I’m raisin’.
In the mountains of Utah, I’ve found a great life.
I sure would like to share it with a good wife.

Both:
When I saw you at the ski lodge, I’ll never forget.
I felt a special attraction when we first met.
We dated for every reason we could think of.
By the time we parted, I knew it was true love.

Man:
I went to Chicago. You took me everywhere.
But then you suggested I should soon move there.
Thinkin’ of my home, I couldn’t stand the contrast.
I left knowing our long distance romance can’t last.

Woman:
I just can’t imagine giving up the things I had.
To live way out in the mountains would be so bad.
No friends, no shopping, no clubbing, no shows - no way!
Though I love him, long distance never works, they say.

Both:
I sold my home and quit my job to be with you,
Said goodbye to all my friends to live with you.
I have to be with you, I’ve come to realize,
Him:
So I’m flying to Chicago as a great big surprise!
Her:
I’m flying to Utah as a great big surprise!

It’ll be a really big surprise
