Too Beautiful For Words
[Shug Avery]
I've always been the kind of gal that had a lot to say
I've says the things that's on my mind, too dumb to shy away
But you hush my mouth, and still me
With a song I never heard

I guess that means that you are just
Too beautiful for words

I've seen this life from high and low
And all that's in between
I've danced with dukes, crooned with counts
Been courted like a queen
But when I see what's in your heart
All the rest is blurred

The grace you bring into this world's
Too beautiful for words

You hide your head under your wings
Just like a little bird
Oh, don't you know you're beautiful
Too beautiful for words

Ooh Celie
You're too beautiful for words
