    1. Eleventh Earl Of Mar

      The sun had been up for a couple of hours,
      Covered the ground with a layer of gold.
      Spirits were high and the raining had stopped,
      The larder was low, But boy that wasn't all.
      Eleventh Earl of Mar
      Couldn't get them very far.
      Daddy ! Oh Daddy, You Promised.

      Out on the road in the direction of Perth,
      Backwards and forwards in a circle they went.
      Found a city half open and ready to greet,
      The conquering heroes, with blisters on their feet.
      Eleventh Earl of Mar
      Somehow got them all this far.
      Daddy ! You Promised, You Promised.

      See the Stewart all dressed up
      He's got eyes in the back of his head.
      Who came in a cockleshell boat
      That could only just float,
      Couldn't even lift a sword.
      Dressed too fine and smelling of wine.

      Daddy you've got to go!
      Here comes the bishop all dressed up
      He's gonna bless you if you're ready to pay.
      One wave of his funny old stick,
      There's a band of light across your eyes.

      Waited a week still they hadn't appeared,
      That glorious timing that everyone feared.
      So they're riding along on the crest of a wave,
      They're headed for London, And that will be their grave.
      Eleventh Earl of Mar
      Well he couldn't get them down that far
      Daddy ! I'm waiting, I'm waiting

      Time to go to bed now
      Never seems too keen
      To be a guest now
      In a house of dreams

      Flying from a hillside
      Beckoning the trees
      A sailboat's awning
      Mimicking the breeze

      I'm fighting gravity falling
      My Daddy won't let them get me
      A voice screams seems to be calling
      The face turns features are burning.

      Daddy, you've got to go!
      See the fifteen going by,
      Tell the Lairds and the Lords
      They're running backwards today,
      And once again you stand alone.

      Bury your memories bury your friends,
      Leave it alone for a year or two.
      Till the stories go hazy and the legends come true,
      Then do it again. Some Things never end.
      Eleventh Earl of Mar
      Won't be going very far.
      You Promised, You Promised, You Promised.
      DADDY !

    2. One For The Vine

      Fifty thousand men were sent to do the will of one.
      His claim was phrased quite simply, though he never voiced it loud,
      I am he, the chosen one.

      In his name they could slaughter, for his name they could die.
      Though many there were believed in him, still more were sure he lied,
      But they'll fight the battle on.

      Then one whose faith had died
      Fled back up the mountainside,
      But before the top was made,
      A misplaced footfall made him stray
      From the path prepared for him.
      Off of the mountain,
      On to a wilderness of ice.

      This unexpected vision made them stand and shake with fear,
      But nothing was his fright compared with those who saw him appear.
      Terror filled their minds with awe.

      Simple were the folk who lived
      Upon this frozen wave.
      So not surprising was their thought,
      This is he, God's chosen one,
      Who's come to save us from
      All our oppressors.
      We shall be kings on this world.

      Follow me !
      I'll play the game you want me,
      Until I find a way back home.

      Follow me !
      I give you strength inside you,
      Courage to win your battles -

      No, no, no, this can't go on,
      This will be all that I fled from.
      Let me rest for a while.

      He walked into a valley,
      All alone.
      There he talked with water, and then with the vine.

      They leave me no choice.
      I must lead them to glory or most likely to death.

      They travelled cross the plateau of ice, up to its edge.
      Then they crossed a mountain range and saw the final plain.
      Still he urged the people on.

      Then, on a distant slope,
      He observed one without hope
      Flee back up the mountainside.
      He thought he recognised him by his walk,
      And by the way he fell,
      And by the way he
      Stood up, and vanished into air

    3. Your Own Special Way

      Go far enough and you will reach,
      A place where the sea runs underneath.
      We'll see our shadow, high in the sky,
      Dying away in the night.

      I've sailed the world for seven years,
      And left all I love behind in tears.
      Oh, won't you come here, wherever you are,
      I've been all alone long enough.

      You, you have your own special way,
      Of holding my hand keep it way 'bove the water,
      Don't ever let go - Oh no, no, no.

      You, you have your own special way,
      Of turning the world so it's facing
      The way that I'm going. Don't ever
      Don't ever stop.

      Whose seen the wind not you or I,
      But when the ship moves she's passing by.
      Between you and me I really don't think,
      She knows where she's going at all.

      You, you have your own special way,
      Of carrying me twice round the world
      Never closer to home than the day,
      The day I started.

      You, you have your own special way,
      Hold onto my hand keep it way 'bove the water,
      Don't ever let go no, no, no.

      What mean the dreams night after night.
      The man in the moon's a blinding light.
      Won't you come out whoever you are,
      You've followed me quiet long enough.

      You, you have your own special way,
      Of holding my hand, Don't ever let go.
      You, you have your own special way,
      Of turning the world so it's facing
      The way that I'm going, Don't ever,
      Don't ever leave me.

    5. All In A Mouse's Night

    Loving Couple:
      I can't see you but I know you're there.
      Got to get beside you cos it's really cold out here.
      Come up close to me you'll soon be warm.
      Hold me tightly like we're sheltering from a storm.

    Mouse:
      Think I might go out for a stroll
      Into the night, and out of this hole.
      Maybe find me a meal.
      Walking along this new shag pile
      Presents a problem all the while.
      Nearly the door.

      Suddenly he bumps into wood, the door is closed.
      A voice from the bed, he'll be exposed.
      Which way to run, must make for the hole,
      The light's been turned on, he's blind as a mole in coal.

      Now I can see they're coming at me,
      They've blocked off my door, I haven't a chance in hell.

    Couple:
      Come on baby let the poor thing go.
      I'm not sleeping with that thing around here, no.
      Alright then, I'll fetch a box from below,
      Guard him carefully, they're very quick you know.

    Mouse:
      The door's been opened, my chance to escape.
      Must run out quick, better sorry than late.
      I'm out on the stairs.
      They won't catch me now, I've the run of the house now.
      I'll make it downstairs and into the breadbin.
      That would be nice.

      Suddenly he bumps into fur, that's very unwise,
      A cat is much quicker than men and their eyes.
      The chase that ensues can have only one end,
      Unless outside help steps in for our friend in need.

      But now the cat comes in for the kill,
      His paw is raised, soon blood will spill, yes it will.

    Cat:
      Hard luck mouse, this is the end of your road.
      The signpost says inside me, let me bear your heavy load.

      But it's not to be, that final pounce
      Knocks a jar upon his head, and lays him out.

      But it's all in a mouse's night
      To take on all those who would fight.

    Cat's Story:
      There I was with my back to the wall,
      Then comes this monster mouse, he's ten feet tall,
      With teeth and claws to match.
      It only took one blow.

    6. Blood On The Rooftops

      Dark and grey, an English film, the Wednesday Play
      We always watch the Queen on Christmas Day
      Won't you stay?

      Though your eyes see shipwrecked sailors you're still dry
      The outlook's fine though Wales might have some rain
      Saved again.

      Let's skip the news boy (I'll make some tea)
      The Arabs and the Jews boy (too much for me)
      They get me confused boy (puts me off to sleep)
      And the thing I hate - Oh Lord!
      Is staying up late, to watch some debate, on some nation's fate.

      Hypnotised by Batman, Tarzan, still surprised!
      You've won the West in time to be our guest
      Name your prize!

      Drop of wine, a glass of beer dear what's the time?
      The grime on the Tyne is mine all mine all mine
      Five past nine.

      Blood on the rooftops - Venice in the Spring
      Streets of San Francisco - a word from Peking
      The trouble was started - by a young Errol Flynn
      Better in my day - Oh Lord!
      For when we got bored, we'd have a world war, happy but poor

      So let's skip the news boy (I'll go make that tea)
      Blood on the rooftops (too much for me)
      When old Mother Goose stops - they're out for 23
      Then the rain at Lords stopped play
      Seems Helen of Troy has found a new face again.

    10. Afterglow

      Like the dust that settles all around me,
      I must find a new home.
      The ways and holes that used to give me shelter,
      Are all as one to me now.
      But I, I would search everywhere
      Just to hear your call,
      And walk upon stranger roads than this one
      In a world I used to know before.
      I miss you more.

      Than the sun reflecting off my pillow,
      Bringing the warmth of new life.
      And the sounds that echoed all around me,
      I caught a glimpse of in the night.
      But now, now I've lost everything,
      I give to you my soul.
      The meaning of all that I believed before
      Escapes me in this world of none, no thing, no one.

      And I would search everywhere
      Just to hear your call,
      And walk upon stranger roads than this one
      In a world I used to know before.
      For now I've lost everything,
      I give to you my soul.
      The meaning of all that I believed before
      Escapes me in this world of none,
      I miss you more.
