timothy, my own timothy (lyrics and chords)

I received a number of requests for lyrics and chords for this new song I wrote about my little nephew in Los Angeles. Although yet to be recorded, I am delighted to share it. Soon, we will hit the studio to lay the tracks for this one. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the live version.

Timothy, My Own Timothy
Dragonfly Collector
Words and Music by Clementine

Intro:  C – Dm7 —-

Chorus:
C                                  Dm7
Timothy, Timothy, you are a precious gift
C                                     Dm7
Timothy, Timothy, you simply are without a doubt
C
A tremendous sensation
Dm7
A tonic to the soul
C          Dm7
Oh, oh, ohh…
C           Dm7
Oh, oh, ohh…

C
I miss your morning smiles
Dm7
The glow in your eyes
C                                              Dm7
And the way, and the way you call me “Tito”

C
Our daily routine
Dm7
Looking outside for squirrels and birds
C                                           Dm7
And the beagles right across the street

Refrain 1:
Em7                                                                   Dm7
I like how you do that forehead kiss with your own
Em7
A prized bump on the head with your eyes closed
Dm7
This groove is so mysterious
G7
I think it’s sweet
C
That’s your style I know…
Dm7
(when you’re happy
C                                   Dm7
I know, I know you like me)

(Repeat Chorus)

Refrain 2:
Em7                                                            Dm7
Oh, three months with you in a nutshell of our own
Em7
Those afternoon walks with your shades on
Dm7
Your groove is so mysterious
G7
I think it’s cool
C
That’s your style I know…
Dm7
Oh, oh, ohh…
C
Oh, oh, ohh…
Dm7
Oh, oh, ohh

(Repeat Chorus)

Coda:
C
Benign universe
Dm7
My life is more than halfway over
Em7
Someday I’ll marry well
Dm7
And have my own
C
My own Timothy.

    The beat is kinda similar to Paul McCartney’s Silly Love Songs! Very great song! :D

    Hey, really like the song, heard it on Spotify.. I wanna play it on my son’s 1st birthday, and just change the name and some words to make the song more “son” friendly, if that’s okay? i’ll make sure everything points back to your awesome band, and tag you all if they ever take a video. :D
