Lyrics

Alexander’s Waltz (Purdum)

Listen to Alexander’s cry
Ringing across the sound
Calling to people far and wide
Gathering them all around

What do you think that he does say?
What is it we do hear?
Laughter and fun and joy and play
Or uncertainty, doubt, and fear?

Whatever it is we cannot know
So I made up this rhyme
He’ll go everywhere that we do go
Revealing himself in time

So, listen to Alexander’s song
Comforting him this day
Happy that we can sing along
As he shows us the way

(verse 2)
Look at how Alexander's grown
Every day more and more
Learning to use things on his own
Figuring out what they're for

I want to know what Alex knows
It's quite a mystery
But I can tell from what he shows
Some of what it might be

What it really is we cannot know
So I made up this rhyme
He’ll go everywhere that we do go
Revealing himself in time

So, listen to Alexander’s song
Comforting him this day
Happy that we can sing along
As he shows us the way

Whatever he says, we cannot know
So I made up this rhyme
He’ll go everywhere that we do go
Revealing himself in time

So, listen to Alexander’s song
Comforting him this day
Happy that we can sing along
As he shows us the way
