lyrics

may there be plenty of people to sit round your table when you’re old
plenty of glasses clinking and stories to sing
and when it comes the time to go clear off the desert forks
hope you’ll sit down with me over a pot of tea

what will be the last thought when you close your eyes goodnight
may it be the best damn thought you’ve had all day
and when it comes the time to go make the bed come morning
may there be poetry in every linen crease

may there be plenty of seagulls circling the shoreline when you float on
may the lighthouse beams shine on all in sight
and when it comes the time to drift off from the moorings
may the stars in the sky guide your sails tonight

what will be the last thought running through your head
may it be the best damn thought you’ve ever had
and when it comes the time for us to pass around the prayer books
may there be poetry in every line we read
