Sing a song 01:26
Sing a song of English men who died upon the sea Sing a song of vagabonds and robbers said he Sing a song and let each lyric roll from your tongue But never let a single story be unsung Sing a song of lovers star crossed yet filled with strife Sing a song of brothers who were parted by the knife Sing a song a soldiers who left their love behind Sing a song of all the joy and love they'll find Sing a song a brave Napoleon, captain of the sea Sing a song of General Taylor long dead though he be Sing a song of whalers who never came back home Sing a song for those who sailed the ocean foam Sing a song of tyrants who ruled with iron fist Sing a song of evil men who never will be missed Sing a song of murderers who threw girls from a cliff Sing a song for those who broke spells with a kiss Who will sing of all these things when we are dead and gone? Who will sing of all these things when the world has moved on? Who will sing and let the voice of history be heard? Will you sing, or do you find this all absurd?

Chorus: Come sail with me love, let us go catch the tide Get away from all this, from the pain and the pride Let us drift on the ocean beneath the blue sky If we run now we'll make it, let's run and we'll go catch the tide When I was a young girl you were in your prime A melting shop chap and you swore you'd be mine With a face black as coal from the heat of the fire And those lovely strong hands that I'd always admire Steel's a strong trade and we'll always have this When you heard from your mates they were closing the pits They'll need steel for these new fancy cars Though I know you loved helping the shipwrights by far While you were so hopeful I knew there's no chance While the fools up at Whitehall did their bloody dance One by one, I watched as they fell And when you came home that day you knew I could tell You shouted in anger there's no bloody jobs For a man who is fifty and worked like a dog And you stood there so silent I watched the tears fall My melting shop chap who had always stood tall It was a cold winter's night I awoke from my sleep There was no one beside me downstairs you did creep I lay there so silent, I heard the chair fall My melting shop chap who had always stood tall.

Mr Robson 01:50
Come in, take a seat, I know your face well And you know mine, Mr Robson I'm a businessman proud from the dark side of town And it's time you and I got to talkin' You're been a thorn in my side and you've caused me much strife Business is poor, Mr Robson It's a victimless crime but you made them do time And you'll pay for what you've stolen Put your money away, you know you can't pay It's too late for you, Mr Robson Your money's no good, your debt is in blood And I've come to collect on your payment You know we've been here a while, what a innocent bride Open your eyes, Mr Robson You know she fought right well, scratched us right well But there's 5 of us and only 1 of her And with that young bride, what an innocent child Don't. Look away. Mr Robson See the fear in her eyes, see the pain deep inside Look what you did, you monster You can bawl all you like, and you can scream for help No one will hear, Mr Robson Don't say you weren't warned son, don't say you weren't told son So goodbye, forever

From the coal folk's choral song Through the lost dark furnace's tongue Melodies and rhymes resound When you're Manvers Island bound I was dreaming late last night All the sweet notes, coming out right High up over ancient ground I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound High up over ancient ground I'll be Manvers Island bound Though the world seems back'ards round Still the right songs have to be found And I know every sight and sound When I'm Manvers Island bound When I'm Manvers Island bound When I'm Manvers Island bound And I know every sight and sound When I'm Manvers Island bound We are silent for so long Thought policemen tell us we're wrong But you can match them pound for pound When you're Manvers Island bound When you're Manvers Island bound When you're Manvers Island bound But you can match them pound for pound When you're Manvers Island bound There are words like history Mystery, and eternity Life is seldom so pround Then when you're Manvers Island bound For the lonely in their beds For the voiceless, living and dead All the singing seasons round I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound All the singing seasons round I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound I'll be Manvers Island bound All the singing seasons round I'll be Manvers Island bound
