Simon & Garfunkel - Song For The Asking Lyrics




Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and I will play
So sweetly, I'll make you smile

This is my tune for the taking
Take it, don't turn away
I've been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I've been sad
Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking

Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold inside

Simon & Garfunkel Song For The Asking Comments

    Place your finger over Paul Simons eyes and imagine what Art Garfunkel would look like with a Mexican moustache and a big chin. You're welcome.

    I can't really comment without becoming a shlamozzle. And there are quite a few of those in this comment section already, I suspect. if anybody knows what shlamozzle means, will you please tell me below. And if you don't know what it means, I've just invented some Yiddish ! : )
    And here's my definition:
    Shlamozzle... Someone so overly emotional and gushing in their praise of an artist, that they embarrass themselves.

    Some say you can’t get something for nothing, and that’s true. But often, you can get what you need for the asking and sometimes you can get something worth having for a song.

    Here is my song for the asking
    Ask me and I will play
    So sweetly, I'll make you smile

    This is my tune for the taking
    Take it, don't turn away
    I've been waiting all my life

    Thinking it over, I've been sad
    Thinking it over, I'd be more than glad
    To change my ways for the asking

    Ask me and I will play
    All the love that I hold inside

    Hm
    Hm

    I guess "Bridge" is their signature song, and Art's vocals weigh in as much as Paul's writing. I believe they had equal input in the production too? That song is a gift.
    But "Song for the Asking" is so simple, so beautiful, it rates right up there with "Bridge ". A too often overlooked joy. And with no disrespect to Paul, I would love to hear Art and two other of my faves vocalists all having had recorded this gem. The arrangement is simple perfection. Lovely.

    People go on about Art's voice, which was undoubtedly something special. But Paul Simon had such a sweet voice & that fact often gets overlooked.
