A European Trip

To England to England to England we go
Oh for the feel of rain wind and snow

To France to France we’ll travel anew
For wine, bread, garlic and onions too

To Belgium to Belgium to Belgium we’ll move on
Tasting their chocolates and singing songs

To Holland to Holland to Holland we’ll fly
For cheeses and tulips oh my oh my

To Germany to Germany to Germany more rain
With beer and sausage reminds us of Spain

Then down through the continent on into Spain
Home again home again dam theres no rain

Competition Nerves!

Here I sit in early light just like a boxer before a fight
How will I do how will I play
Oh deary me it’s here its today

Will I play well or miss my aim or will I be brilliant again
Oh how I wish I could picker like my friends
The competitions I would enter then but still they think that I am good this I’ve never understood
It’s not my natural game you see I only learnt it here
But I enjoy the fun and friendship that abounds around me here I’ve won before but each times the same what am I doing where to aim
Then comes the time that I must leave to join my team
Off I go in expectant mood how strange I’ve lost my mental nerves

Now I am looking forward to the fray after breakfast boccodillo and wine
Ah that’sĀ better I feel fine perhaps that’s why we have this fare
Relaxing food a cheerful air opponents drawn the game begins

No room in my mind for other things two games one this is the last
We did it wow we won and now we wait for the final telling joust
International rules are these alas we only second came

But a ham and wine I took home then today it starts all over again
Its 7.45am and I am off to fight again for this is my ‘bull fight’ this is Spain
I hope when I return I’ll have a prize its fun its fun oh my oh my

My Thoughts and Me

Sitting in the shade of the old olive tree
Me some wine my thoughts and me
Reflecting on the way things be
Me some wine my thoughts and me.

The swing seat swayed by gentle breeze
Rocking my wine my thoughts and me
Hazy lazy times are these
Rocking my wine my thoughts and me.

I’m hundreds of years younger than thee
With some wine my thoughts and me
Beneath your out spread branches I be
With some wine my thoughts and me.

Young green olives I look up to see
I some wine my thoughts and me
Soon black they’ll turn more work there’ll be
I some wine my thoughts and me.

Wonderful juice from this fruit there will appear
Accompanying some wine my thoughts and me
Over fresh bread with tomatoes for tea
Accompanying some wine my thoughts and me.

So I’ll just sit here let my mind roam free
Peaceful some wine my thoughts and me
How happy I am to be at home
Peaceful some wine my thoughts and me.

A calling voice my name that’s me
Relaxing some wine my thoughts and me
Come on sweetie it’s time for tea
Relaxing some wine my thoughts and me.
