Every summer n the gardens of Florence, a peasant of female persuasion
Used 2 cry 4 Michelangelo 2 save her from death's invitation
Some say this woman was crazy, others say this woman was possessed
But just 1 look at her face and it's evident 2 her he was the best

Oh Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michaelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion

By summer's end came many offers, all of which the peasant refused
She wanted Michelangelo and no other, no other man would do
No 1 could speak with passion and touch her, touch her the way he does
No 1 except Michelangelo, it was him or a life without love

Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion

A life without love, a life without love
Don't die, don't die without love
Dear Michelangelo, Dear Michelangelo

Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion
Dear, Dear, Dear Michelangelo, angel

Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion
{repeat chorus}
