Birthdays with Bespoken Words

A song for Fleur

There's a tale to tell
About this home-county girl
Sang before she could walk
Clapped before she could talk

With the sand in her toes
She goes where the wind blows
Dancing through life
A dance nobody knows

So, look what you've done, 30 years gone
Let’s celebrate now with some words and a song
To the years that will be and the years that have gone
It's here you will always belong 

Ran to school everyday
Couldn't wait to be gone
Dreaming up new plans
Dreaming of songs

As soon as we could
We bought you a car
First thing you said is
'I'm gonna go far!'

So, look what you've done, 30 years gone
Let’s celebrate now with some words and a song
To the years that will be and the years that have gone
It's here you will always belong 

 

A song for Jan and John

John, he came to London after finishing all of his studies
Jan, she was still at school, writing up the rest of her essays

I am here, you are mine, let me say this time
I am here, you are mine let me stay

And then one day in Harringay they met at Sarah-Jane's party
Jan wore a purple dress and John looked a little like McCartney

I am here, you are mine, let me say this time
I am here, you are mine let me stay for all time

Oh there is so much left to see we will not be untied
Oh there is so much left to share
Our love will not die

They talked all night and Jan finally gave him her number
A kiss goodbye, a little glance, they already felt for each other

I am here, you are mine, let me say this time
I am here, you are mine let me stay for all time

Oh there is so much left to see we will not be untied
Oh there is so much left to share
Our love will not die

 

Song for Tom and Sarah

Goodbye Sarah now we've heard those wedding vows
You made your mother cry and your daddy feels so proud
And how your life is moving so damn fast
Here's to the future as we contemplate the past

Here's a blessing we made into a song
Goodbye Sarah but remember where you're from

Now we feel safe in the knowledge that you smile
We must admit that we were concerned for a while
Welcome to Thomas and all the Nesbits too
When we met him for the first time we all knew

Here's a blessing we made into a song
Goodbye Sarah but remember where you're from

We're so proud of you and all your pottery
You two together make the perfect company
We wish you happiness and a marriage filled with joy
We hope one day you'll have a girl or a boy

Here's a blessing we made into a song
Goodbye Sarah but remember where you're from
