A Song of Sixpence

From the Album  Terasa

Song Not Yet Released

My mobile phone just won’t connect my laptop won’t turn on
My house was made in china, my pension in Saigon
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, from a time so long ago
With undercover listening to pirate radio
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of memories

My bank told me they cared so much, so I gave them a call
They put me through to India or maybe it was Nepal
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, that magic silver coin
When life was oh so simple, and the smallest things gave joy
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of memories

I’ve got so many records that half are left unplayed
Heaven knows who made them or if they will be paid
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, that came with every tooth
They said it was a fairy, who cared if it was true
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of memories

I’ve had to park my car and take a bus to where I am
I can’t find what’s important, cause it’s lost amongst the spam
I’ll sing a song of sixpence when letters came from friends
Not nasty looking red ones, from debt that never ends
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of memories

I have to look on Facebook to see where my kids have been
They insist on Gucci but say money is obscene
I’ll sing a song of sixpence when money was still real
And cards were used for playing, we laughed with every deal
I’ll sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of memories
