Morris Minor 02:58
Morris Minor Let's pile in my old banger I'll take you for a drive Press the starter, pull the choke Off we go in a cloud of smoke It's nothing complicated It's nothing la-di-da It's got a handle at the front It's a bit outdated Chugging along on a summers day We'll stop for a picnic, have a flask of tea Then jump back in and off we go Up the hills and down again When it coughs and starts to stammer open up the bonnet and whack it with a hammer Then press the starter, pull the choke Off we go in a cloud of smoke It's nothing complicated It's nothing la-di-da It's got a handle at the front It's a bit outdated My old car it coughs and splutters But chuggs along at a steady rate Always gets me where I want to We're always back in time for tea It's nothing complicated It's nothing la-di-da It's got a handle at the front It's a bit outdated

Rosebud 04:02
Rosebud Feel it slowly open just like rosebud in the snow Hear the blackbird singing high the beauty overwhelming me Feel the chorus rising as you waken from a dream Let the beauty fill you up and melt into the rising dawn Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel the love Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel the love Here you’ll find the secret in the dawning of the day Listen to the song birds sing their beauty overwhelming me When I was a small child I grew wings and flew away Now I hear them sing again and melt into the rising dawn Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel the love Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel the love Standing in the bluebell wood the sun breaks through the trees Feel all nature waking up the beauty overwhelming me All the breathing creatures know the secret of the dawn Take my hand and fly away and melt into the rising dawn Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel the love Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel the love You will find the secret in the dawning of the day You will find the secret in the dawning of the day You will find the secret in the dawning of the day

Tiny Little Fly You are my everything my tiny little fly You are the best there is the apple of my eye I wonder where you’ve been the things that you have seen You found your way to me from far across the sea One for the blackbird singing in the tree All for the little dog who lives down the lane You are my everything my tiny little fly You are the best there is the apple of my eye Lost in the cold dark night you sheltered from the storm I’ll keep you warm and safe tucked inside my heart You are my everything my tiny little fly You are the best there is the apple of my eye Climb up the wooden hills to the land of Bedfordshire Float off into a dream forever and a day You are my everything my tiny little fly You are the best there is the apple of my eye Love you with all my heart and will forever more Cos you are my everything my tiny little fly

Victoriana 06:31
Victoriana Let me take you down some cobbled streets Gas lamps glow, a real pea souper, slink on down a darker alleyway Neon sign, the magic theatre, step right up, come slide on in with me And there she is….Victoriana See her standing there the queen of heartaches Holding court with all the lost and lonely Many have tried to win her, their hearts all bear the scar But her heart belongs to someone else Victoriana Victoriana Through each door lies all your hopes and dreams You may find what lies within, will draw you down a darker alleyway Deep inside the magic theatre, step right up, come lose yourself with me See her standing there the queen of heartaches You will fall with all the lost and lonely Many have tried to win her, their hearts all bear the scar But her heart belongs to someone else Victoriana Victoriana

Weight of the World When I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders And I know you feel the same way too When I look into your eyes see your shining beauty All my troubles melt away, I finally understand the secret You’re my Rosebud in the snow, I have found you, I have found you my love When I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders And I know you feel the same way too When I look into your eyes see your shining beauty All my troubles melt away, I finally understand the secret You’re my Rosebud in the snow, I have found you, I have found you my love When I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders

That Certain Something Sometimes I feel that certain something Sometimes we hit that certain groove When it comes a rollin’ round the corner I know there’s something going on Because it’s got that certain something, satisfaction’s guaranteed It’s got that certain something, it’s got just what I need Sometimes I feel that certain something When we slide around that slinky groove You can feel it creeping up your backbone I know there’s something going on Because it’s got that certain something, satisfaction’s guaranteed It’s got that certain something, it’s got just what I need Because it’s got that certain something, satisfaction’s guaranteed It’s got that certain something, satisfaction’s guaranteed It’s got that certain something, satisfaction’s guaranteed It’s got that certain something, it’s got just what I need

Micro Macro 07:14
Micro/Macro There was once a small boy lying in the long grass on a hot summers day, playing truant from school, when along walked the Headmaster, who when seeing the boy, asked him why he was not in school. The boy replied, “Why do I need to go to school?” The Head, slightly taken aback said, “To get an education of course.” “Why do I need an education?” “So you can gain qualifications and get a good job.” “Why do I need a job?” “ “So you can buy a house, pay your mortgage and save up for your retirement”. “Why on earth would I want to do all that?” “So then you can lie about in the sun all day.” The boy replied, “ I am lying in the sun”. If we now view this summer scene from way up above, see the boy lying in the long grass, dreaming away. See the boy from a mile up in the sky, see the outline of the continent, the planet below Out past the moon, look down on Mars, fly through the solar system, out into the void 4 light years away lies Alpha Centauri, a star like ours with planets spinning around Out past countless solar systems, to the edge of our galaxy, where our sun is just a tiny speck of light amongst billion and billions of other suns Fly away from our galaxy, across the void Millions of light years later we arrive at Andromeda See this huge spiral galaxy spinning around See the interstellar clusters and all their worlds In the vast Universe there are billions and billions and billions of galaxies, all with countless billions of planets spinning around So take a moment in your busy day, come lie in the grass and together we can share the beauty……….. dreaming away, dreaming away, dreaming away,……………

Pale Blue Dot See the clusters billions wide through Interstellar space we glide An endless ocean full of stars the beauty and the vastness on forever Silently we fly on past a Sun with planets spinning round Pale blue dot shines in the darkness, where apes climb down their trees and stare in wonder Gravity like clockwork toys the heavens spinning round and round An endless vastness stretching on and on and on and on forever See the clusters billions wide through Interstellar space we glide An endless ocean full of stars the beauty and the vastness on forever
