How many sleeps ‘till I see you again
How many waves on the shore
How many wishes and how many prayers
Before you are with me once more
I’ll kiss you goodnight
And I’ll promise to write
And I’ll see you very soon
We’ll be looking at the same moon
I will be there when you call
And the moment is forever
Oh, Amy Rose,
I love you most of all.

Lions and tigers and crocodile tears
Things that go bump in the night
I’ll be your hero and dry all your tears
Drive all your fears out of sight
And how do you find it’s so easy to leave me
Alone inside my room
I will see you in the same stars
I will hold your face, oh
And the moment is forever
My Amy Rose
This is your daddy’s vow.

I will meet you at the kissing gate
Remember the fish on the stone
I will meet you down at Amy’s barn
And you will never be alone
You will never be alone.

How many sleeps ‘till I see you again
How many rays in the sun
Daddy I love you as long as I live
Long as a river may run
How many colours we see in the rainbow
And chase that red balloon
Are we looking at the same moon
We will never be apart
And the moment is forever
My Amy Rose
I live inside your heart.

I will meet you at the kissing gate
Remember the fish on the stone
I will meet you down at Amy’s barn
And you will never be alone

And whether she’s running through the yellow fields
Or barefoot on the stones
I will meet you down at Amy’s barn
And you will never be alone
You will never be alone.
No, not alone, Amy.

 

As you know this is the B side of Cliff Richards new single. A wonderful composition written by Barry and his best friend David English. David is very pleased with the success of the song. David: ‘It’s quite wonderful that it’s doing so well. I wrote the song about my daughter Amy Rose, who, as a little girl, used to phone me from Zimbabwe, where she lived at the time, and asked, How many sleeps before I see you daddy?’ She would measure how long she hadn’t seen me in how many nights she had slept I thought this was a lovely idea for a song so me and Barry went to Miami to record it. We thought it would be perfect for Cliff Richard so he came over and put down the vocals. The funny thing is that Cliff hasn’t even met Amy Rose, even though he’s singing about her.’
