“ALL THE WORLD AND I” © Elana James, Mandiola Music (BMI), 2007.
Ask not why the mountains rise,
or why the sky is blue.
Ask not for whom the willow weeps,
my love, it weeps for you.
Ask not where the river flows,
sweetheart, it’s plain to see.
And when the flowers all grow up,
it’s you they want to be.
North star shines to find you
and bring you to her side.
Trade winds blow to guide you
across the ocean wide.
‘Cause all the world’s in love with you,
heaven longs to draw you nigh.
Yes all the world’s in love with you,
all the world and I.
