FROM ONE TO ANOTHER

A Maiden Fair

 

 

Let me tell you a story

A long time ago about a city dweller

He fell down on his knees

He hit the floor

As he tried to consider.

 

Do I go back again this evening

Go back again once more

He had one only look in his eyes

And then came around for more.

 

The second night he was given

And likely to have

A mister what you doing here

And quietly he said

“I’m looking for the riches AND the finest of the best”

Looking so bold he tears through England

To find two golden aire.

 

 

So they came diddling dallying

And then he stop to sigh

“I’m nearly there have reached the top”

and then he begin’s to hide

She looked at me in other words

To say what I have done

He spent most of his money

But the money was nearly gone.

Take it easy think it over

Take it easy over today

You’ve got money in your pocket

what your living for?

Say ‘i’m living for?’

 

“I’m living for today”

 

Hey bonny lass

Where have you gone

A hundred miles away

Your up to the north of England

Moving time and running astray.

Don’t look up to what I’ve done now

Have i spent all the  riches

You've money in your pocket

The only living proof

The man with many maids.

 

But look up he loses it all

Over night and over day

it  was in and out

It was only a question

then ran miles away

Don’t look up now

To be sonny boy

Look up now to be

But the rambler once said

Don’t become the system.

As the gambling man trailed

 

The gambling man trailed away!

 

 

Don’t look up now to sonny boy

Look up now to be

BUT THE CROWD SHOUTS THE LOUDEST

OVER THE NORTH OF ENGLAND

AS THE CROWD SHOUTED OUT

HIS N

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Only One

 

 

It became upon the distant dream

You don’t see the land to be all the same

Built in 1350 a towers fenced from once it came

 

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

 

The orange brick  walls

Outside the open path they call the lane

A towers dream is lifted

The tails of the two become the same

A life time open doors

Which change the path of rhythm

Forth is sparse.

An englishman stole a crown

And you knew that it wasn’t going to last

 

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

 

Along the makers watch

And now they’ll all be turning

In there graves

To become an open chain

You know all the ones

We need to blame

 

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

 

Well the old times now

The old times now become the new

Hey watch out the ship has sunk the place renewed

 

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

Well you don’t see to when she’s gone

Don’t see when she’s gone

 

St James Infirmary

 

 

 

I was down in olde joes bar room

On the corner by the square

The drinks where served as usual

And The usual crowd where there

 

On my left stood Joe Mckendy

His eyes where blood shot red

And he spoke to the crowd around him

And these are the very words he said

 

I was down in st James infirmary

I saw my baby there

Stretched out on a long white table

So cold so sweet so fair

 

Well let her go Let her go God bless her

Where ever she may be

She can handle the whole wide world over

But she won’t find a man as sweet as me 234

 

When I die please bury me

With a high top Stenson hat

Put a gold piece in my watch farb

And the gang will think I’m standing fat

 

I want six gambling men to be ball bearers

Six women to sing me a song

Put a jazz band in my Hurst wagon

And  we can roll hell as we go along 234

 

Well Now that you heard my story

I’ll  have another shot of booze

And if anyone tries to ask you

Tell em this is the gambling blues 234

Clockworks

 

 

 

Countless thoughts of a generation

To be heard second time around.

Looking over Korova mistaken

This worlds a different place

A different place is found.

 

This new chapter first beginning

A rhythm casts the shadows from the night

Looking over Korova’ on a mission

Korova ending its final flight.

 

And all we have is this final compilation

A mere chapter from time to time

Kids screaming the death of a nation

Surrounding others in the kindling light.

 

 

Between Beethoven and the others

5th Symphony becomes a verse

Looking over Korova’s never ending

Beaten to it the same advice

 

ALL ACROSS -all across a new sentence

IT REPEATs -  it repeats - to repeating the last

LOOKING AT - looking at this different generation

Sitting it through its final chance and

 

And all we have is this final compilation

A mere chapter from time to time

Kids screaming the death of a nation

Surrounding others in the kindling light.

 

 

And all we have is this final compilation

A mere chapter from time to time

Kids screaming the death of a nation

Surrounding others in the kindling light.

 

And all we have is this final compilation

A mere chapter from time to time

Kids screaming the death of a nation

Surrounding others in the kindling light.

 

 

It was through to you

The first ever time

A tune is heard

The rhythms of the night

We dance as one

The nation stays alive

Doesn’t make it easy

And doesn’t make it right

 

It was through to you

The first ever time

A tune is heard

The rhythms of the night

We dance as one

The nation stays alive

Doesn’t make it easy

And doesn’t make it right

 

It was through to you

The first ever time

A tune is heard

The rhythms of the night

We dance as one

The nation stays alive

Doesn’t make it easy

And doesn’t make it right

 

It was through to you

The first ever time

A tune is heard

The rhythms of the night

We dance as one

The nation stays alive

Doesn’t make it easy

And doesn’t make it right

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mary Jane

 

 

 

It started in the afternoon

Don’t know where to begin

Sitting upon a dusty path

Covers his tracks in sin

 

And as you see like everything used to be

Says I'm giving up for everything

giving up for everything

giving up for everything

giving up for

giving up for

giving up for the Mary Jane

 

His tracks throughout the strangest stench

And walked the sunny sands

He started here to Folkestone

Onto green and pleasant lands

He walks onto London town

Onto the midlands rise

Upon to the Northern half

And thats where he set aside

 

And as you see like everything used to be

I’m looking for trouble with the Mary Jane

Looking for trouble with the Mary Jane

Looking for trouble with the Mary Jane

Looking for trouble

Looking for trouble

Looking for trouble with the Mary Jane

 

Was to hold my breath on a sunny sunny day

And he turned the Yorkshire tide

The woodland started now to stray

Again he set aside

Don’t build on me, Don’t build on me

This isn’t all your land

Go back to once you come from

The dark unpleasant man

 

 

And as you see like everything used to be

Say i’m coming on down on everything

Coming on down on everything

Coming on down on everything

Coming on down

Coming on down

Coming on down because of the Mary Jane

 

 

Then lately one day

He says my dreams can’t come true

He tried to rise up

Not sure what to say or do

All shouting across the ways and the years of fellow lands

To all who survive of the year of the stand

Get back to once from this day and this night

From once bites three times and steady the bites do rise

But don’t you tell use what to do or to say

When we see trouble AHEAD.

 

People Versus

 

 

 

A man stands tall as he shouts out loud

A game he punishes to the crowd

You don’t seem to I  be all the same

He grabs the man by the hand

And tells him, whisper to calm down

But he can’t seem to tell what its all to be.

 

But the barman shouts “Get out of here”

and then he punishes in the air

Just one more drink and he staggers towards to me

He said now 15 of them where on one man

matey boy doesn't back down

he grabs the others by the wrist throws them forward he takes the risk

 

He hits a

1 and a 2, 3 4 5 and 6 and 7 and 8 9 10  11 12 13 4 15

 

 

Oh then matey boy gets back to him

He wack’s the fellow on the chin

Just one more drink and I will leave you be

He said now 15 of them where on one man

Into The Rolling Sea

 

 

 

 

At first he through his jester hat

And then he shouts his plead

His stamps upon the lower deck

Please ladies follow me:

Get up now Johnny get up now please

The last waves rolled over him

And into the rolling sea

 

 

He was hit now by a rock

And fell down once again

He hit his head upon the floor

And lost what he had said:

Get up now Johnny get up now please

The last waves rolled over him

Like everything used to be

 

 

Beyond to judge him was his lass

That thought that he was dead

She looked at him with open eyes

And then she felt his head:

Get up now Johnny get up now please

The last waves rolled over him

Like everything used to be

 

 

The breeze pushed away from him

Half way down the stairs

Upon to the lower deck

As he drank his last ferment

She gave him three seconds

And closed her fists of rage

She looked at him above the floor

Wishing he was dead!

 

But up you go to see her

And up and forth the eye

She got up exactly, quickly

Then she set aside:

Get up now Johnny get up now please

The last waves rolled over him

And into the rolling sea

 

 

And then at the age

The age of 93

I’m leaving now never coming back

And thats what it means to me

Goodbye now everyone

Goodbye I’ll rest in peace

Then he lied there on his very own

And then he fell asleep
