THE BUS OF MEMORIES

A BUS FULL OF ELDERLY FOLK
PAS
SED ME BY ONE DAY
A
ND I SAW MYSELF IN THE FUTURE
LOO
KING OLDER THAN TODAY

 

WHERE DO ALL THE YOUNG YEARS GO
WHY DOES THIS LIFE GO SO FAST
THANK GOD
WE HAVE GREAT MEMORIES
OF GOOD TI
MES AND PEOPLE IN OUR PAST

THE MANY PLACES WE HAVE BEEN
AND
THE MANY PEOPLE WE MET
WE WE
RE ALWAYS WELL LIKED
AND NE
VER LOST A FRIEND YET

THE ICE COLD TRIPS TAE PORTOBELLO BATHS
AND THE RUNS DOON TAE SALTCOATS COAST
ARE ALL A TREASURED MEMORY
OF OUR OLD
YOUNG FRIENDS WE LOVE THE MOST

THEN LONGER TRIPS DOON TAE BLACKPOOL
LOOKING
FOR THAT ELUSIVE POT OF GOLD
BUT WE
WOULD ALWAYS END UP SKINT
A
ND WHAT GOOD'S A LOT 0' MONEY WHEN YOU ARE OLD

SO AM GONNY GROW OLD GRACEFULLY
AND TAKE IT EASY FROM NOW ON
AND TRE
ASURE EVERY SINGLE DAY
FOR WHEN THEY
'RE GONE THEY'RE GONE

SO TAKE ME BACK ON THE BUS OF MEMORIES
TO THE STREA
MERS AND THE WINKING EYES
IT SURE IS NICE TAE GET AWAY

BUT EVEN BETTER WHEN IT'S A SURPRISE
