SONG 24 : GOODBYE FROM THE MOUNT

 
It’s goodbye from the Mount 
At the end of our journey
There’s 24 songs we’ve written and sung
 
It’s goodbye from the Mount 
On the windy left coast
We’ve sent wishes to hundreds since we’ve begun
 
Looking from the tower at one o clock
Helvelyn rises from the sands of the bay
Looking from the tower there’s been Matt and me
It’s been a hard day’s night
 
So shout out for Adele, shout out for Kerenza
Shout out to you all with our final cadenza
Shout out to Ruth, to Francis and Joanie
Poco Loco, FUN and cameraman DJohnny
To George and Amanda, Rick and Ben
Makoto, Manuela, Leo and Ben
Andrew, Josep, Paula and Calvin,
Anni, Max and Bill
 
It’s been an online adventure for us virtual pigeons 
For Matt on clarinet, and me on accordion
 
 
It’s goodbye from the Mount 
At the centre of Fleetwood
The only high point in this fishing town
 
It’s goodbye from the Mount 
With a clock that’s ticking
We have seen the hours count down
 
Looking out from this tower we send wishes of peace
To people in this troubled world
Looking out from this tower we send wishes of peace
Lets take time, break bread and talk
