  • Song begins at about 3 minutes into the video...
  • oh lord!
  • 1:02 minutes of sheer bliss
  • EXTRAS!! [2958384802347]
  • 182
    perfect minute
  • My mom had this album... I always thought this was a cute little song.
  • I can't believe he wrote a song this good, and left it this short. Perfect. If he were a lesser artist he would have dragged this song out for 10 minutes.
  • EXTRAS!! [2958384802346]
  • I normally cannot stand Cat Stevens but one hell of a song.
  • Oh goody - I have one minute left to kill at work - perfect song. Thanks Cat and lastfm. Everyone have a great weekend!
