Shuffle to the left, Shuffle to the right, Ruffle the cabbage, And take a big bite. *** Curl up from the cold, And hide away for the night, Avoid the birds, And the bats that bite. *** And when you grow up, Wrap yourself up high, Dangle from a twig, And wait to take flight.
You know that point, That wonderful felling, No matter how quick, No matter how fleeting. * The sensation of happiness, coated in uncertainty, One of the few times, It’s left to Heisenberg. * Where the blood moves quick, But the brain is stumped, All in an instant you know its correct, But in that time its questioned. * How did I get here? Where do I go now? Will the path ever be clear? From here on out? * But you push those questions off, Just to bask in the joy of the moment, The warmth of the happiness, The joy of that instant, But you always question, * What could be better than now???
Dreams are made, People parade, Swimmers swim, And medals won. *** The sportsmen unite, Count their medals at night, Win more in the morning, Then rest in the evening. *** The Commonwealth flocking, To see the running, To watch the boxing, To cheer the swimming. *** Scotland’s chance to shine, Alongside the best, In the land of the kilt, In a world well built. *** Come see the games, Where dreams are made, Battles fought, By the Commonwealth of Nations.
When I see the news, It reminds me, When I visit the shops, It reminds me, Fathers day, Another reminder, Family packs, Without the father, Advertising emails, For father and son, Another sting, Now that your gone.
Each day I go out, I forget your aren’t here, When I walk to work, You are just there, You must be at home, Where else would you be, I’m not convincing myself, It’s just the way it has been, Then I remember, And I twinge a little inside, You aren’t at home, And haven’t “just popped out, For a while,” No, You are gone, And can never be seen, No quick visit, Or just a cup of tea, I have to remind myself, Before I try to call, You are not here, No, not at all, So before I forget, And dream you are home, let me say goodbye, farewell and so long.
