Sing & Accompany on Piano w/EZ Song Lyrics & Piano Tabs

 

There was a time when I was in a hurry as you are
I was like you
There was a day when I just had to tell my point of view
I was like you
Now I don’t mean to make you frown
No, I just want you to slow down

Have you never been mellow?
Have you never tried to find a comfort from inside you?
Have you never been happy just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?

Running around as you do with your head up in
the clouds
I was like you
Never had time to lay back, kick your shoes off,
close your eyes
I was like you
Now you’re not hard to understand
You need someone to take your hand

Have you never been mellow?
Have you never tried to find a comfort from inside you?
Have you never been happy just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?

Olivia Newton-John Have You Never Been Mellow (Live 1975)

History and Release. In March 1975 the single became Newton-John's second consecutive number one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, although it stayed in the top chart position for just one week. The record also received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The song also topped the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Singles chart and — in her continued success as a crossover artist — peaked at No. 3 on the Hot Country Singles chart.
In the United States, it was Newton-John's fourth straight single to be certified gold for sales of one million copies. "Have You Never Been Mellow" also reached number one in Canada and peaked at number 10 in Australia and number 26 in Japan, but was not much of a success elsewhere in the world, failing to chart altogether in the United Kingdom.
Cover Versions.
The song is being performed as part of the 2007 Broadway musical Xanadu. Along with her later single Xanadu, a remixed version by "The Olivia Project" appears in the Dance Dance Revolution series of video games. The Dutch band Party Animals sampled the song in 1996 on their hit "Have You Ever Been Mellow". The song reached No. 1 on the Netherlands singles chart.
