Clair" is a popular song by Irish singer Gilbert O'Sullivan and is one of his biggest-selling singles. Written by O'Sullivan and produced by Gordon Mills, it was the number one single in the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in November 1972,number one in Canada on the RPM 100 national singles chart the following January, and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. It was also O'Sullivan's second and last number one hit on the U.S. Easy Listening chart, after "Alone Again (Naturally)".
The song is the love song of an uncle for his young niece, though for the first part of the song, the ambiguous text leads one to think that it is from one adult to another. The brief instrumental introduction is the sound of O'Sullivan whistling, before he comes in. The real Clair was the young daughter of O'Sullivan's producer-manager, Gordon Mills, and his wife, the model Jo Waring. The little girl's giggling is heard at the end of this song. The "Uncle Ray" mentioned in the song is O'Sullivan himself, a reference to his real name of Raymond O'Sullivan. The instrumental break in the middle section is done half a step up from A to B-Flat, before going back to A.
ClairThe moment I met you, I swearI felt as if something, somewhereHad happened to meWhich I couldn't seeAnd thenThe moment I met you againI knew in my heart that we were friendsIt had to be soIt couldn't be noBut try As hard as I might do, I don't know whyYou get to me in a way I can't describeWords mean so little when you look up and smileI don't care what people say, to me you're more than a childOh, ClairClair
ClairIf ever a moment so rare Was captured for all to compareThat moment is you In all that you doBut whyIn spite of our age difference do I cryEach time I leave you I feel I could dieNothing means more to me than hearing you say"I'm going to marry you, will you marry me, Uncle Ray?" Oh, ClairClair
ClairI've told you before, don't you dareGet back into bedCan't you see that it's lateNo you can't have a drinkOh all right then, but wait just a bitWhile I, in an effort to babysitCatch of my breath what there is left of itYou can be murder at this hour of the dayBut in the morning this hour will seem a lifetime awayOh, Clair ClairOh, Clair
