I have composed a melody for this lyric by Carroll Kiphen.

Listen to it: My voice + ukulele
https://app.box.com/s/9rxg0xspzt3dj4t1lwza39r4s5k0ga01

I Have My Girl
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
© Lyrics: Carroll Kiphen, 2019.
© Melody: Guy E. Trepanier, 2019.

Intro: 4 bars (key of C)

I donít need your religion.
I donít need your promised land.
I have a perfect angel
To love and hold my hand.

Sheís my paradise.
She is my whole world.
You can have heaven.
I have my girl.


I donít need any treasure.
I donít need diamonds or gold.
I have a priceless jewel
To hold and call my own.

Sheís my paradise.
She is my whole world.
You can have heaven.
I have my girl.


You can take all my possessions.
Just leave me one thing.
Cause I will always be wealthy.
While she wears my ring.

Instrumental: 8 bars

I donít need your religion.
I donít need your promised land.
I have a perfect angel
To love and hold my hand.

Sheís my paradise.
She is my whole world.
You can have heaven.
I have my girl.

Sheís my paradise.
She is my whole world.
You can have heaven.
I have my girl.


You can have heaven.
I have my girl.

Hey Guy,

Living here in Fiji, I always appreciate a uke and an island song. smile

Yep, not so bad. It could do with a vocal tidy up, but has a catchy hook and a simple island feel.

There are a couple of lines which are syllable heavy...

Cause I will always be wealthy.

and...

I donít need your promised land.

...which could do with a chop.

You may like to revise I donít need your religion. which may offend some listeners.

Other than that, it's a cute song with a simple message and a memorable hook and melody.

cheers, niteshift
