Danny Boy

1.
Oh Danny boy the pipes the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone and all the flowers dying
‘Tis you ’tis you must go and I must bide

2.
But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
And I’ll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy oh Danny boy I love you so

3.
But when ye come and all the roses falling
And I am dead as dead I well may be
Go out and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an ave there for me

4.
And I will hear though soft you tread above me
And then my grave will warm and sweeter be
For you shall bend and tell me that you love me
And I will sleep in peace until you come to me

Lyrics written by English lawyer and lyricist Frederic Weatherly in Bath, Somerset in 1910.
To the tune of ‘Londonderry Air.’

Go Away (And Pray)

1.
Why oh why don’t you just go away, and leave me alone?
You steal my stuff, but that isn’t enough, you beg me yet for more.
It pleases you to hurt me so.
I don’t agree with a word you say.
I know that you, haven’t a clue.
Suggest you go away.
Suggest you go away, and pray.

2.
It’s easy you just walk away, and let me sing my songs.
Don’t take my stuff, I haven’t enough, I beg you take no more.
It pleases you to rob me so. Why don’t you go away?
You know that you really must go.
Suggest you stay away.
Suggest you stay away, and pray.

3.
You break God’s heart.
You steal his stuff, but that isn’t enough.
You beg him yet for more.
It pleases you, to hurt him so.
You don’t agree with a word he says.
I know that you, haven’t a clue.
Suggest you go away.
Suggest you go away, and pray.

My Friends

1.
When should you stop, look and listen, at where our lives should be?
See My Friends, I have been saddened,
A life too trivial to see.
Where I have walked, others have driven,
Still others have even flown.

2.
Can’t you just reach, out to each other,
Share a marriage of love.
See me my friends, I could be saddened.
A life too ill to share.
Where you have ran, I’ve only stumbled, but
This life is the life,
I have known.

3.
When should we stop, look and listen to where every life should go?
See me my friends, I have been saddened,
Love is a dream I can’t know.
I have trusted, and others have listened, but
Love is a dream,
I can’t know.

Now The Day Is Over

1.
Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky

2.
Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds and beasts and flowers
Soon will be asleep.

3.
Yeshua give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With thy tenderest blessing
May their eyelids close.

4.
Grant to little children
Visions bright of thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the angry sea.

5.
Comfort every sufferer
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.

6.
Throughout the long night watches
May thine angels spread
Their white wings above me,
Watching round my bed.

7.
When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure and fresh and sinless,
In thy holy eyes.

8.
Glory to the Father,
Glory to the Son,
And to thee, Blest Spirit,
Whilst all ages run.

Church Hymn – Sabine Baring-Gould 1834 – 1924

Pity Them

Time out
Not losing
Not winning
Pity though
It’s a right pity though

Half time
We’re winning
They’re losing
Pity them
It’s right to pity them

Time out
We’re drawing
They’re crowing
Pity though
It’s a right shambles though

Full time
We lost
We were robbed
Pity though
It’s a right pity though

The Reason Why

1.
I’ve never loved
I never could
My mother
My brothers
My sisters said
I never would
It came too late the reason why
And no one understood

2.
I have lived
So full of hope
My humour got me by
They never laughed
It came to light
The reason
Too late the reason why
And they all thought they knew

3.
The world stole my dreams
The government
Took it’s toll
The police drove the nails in
To crucify my soul
Too late the reason why
And no one understood

Auld Lang Syne

Chorus
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

1.
Should auld acqaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acqaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

2.
And surely you’ll be your pint stoup,
And surely I’ll be mine;
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

3.
We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wandered mony a weary fit,
Since auld lang syne.

4.
We twa hae paidled in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roared,
Since auld lang syne.

5.
And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a richt gude, willie waught,
For auld lang syne.

Robert Burns 1759 – 179
