Track Name: Dad's Army
The Book Club - "Dad's Army"

Hey Joe, what've you got to show,
Twenty four years now and not a single penny to your name,
Well that may be the case, but if you want the truth,
I've spent a lot of time, spent a lot of time,
spent a lot of time, spent a lot of time,
Spent a lot of love on you.

So easy, it was meant to be so easy,
But after a mile or so, someone put a boulder in the road,
Don't panic Mr. Mainwaring, we'll have to go around it,
The coast is over yonder,
Just a minor detail, can anybody here build us a boat?

I think we'll stay a little longer,
I don't want to miss the best part, of the day,
They said it's just around the corner,
But I feel I ought to warn you,
Oh they said that the last time.

I think we'll stay a little longer,
I don't want to miss the best part, of the day,
They said it's just around the corner,
But I feel I ought to warn you,
Oh they said that the last time,
They said that the last time.

Hey Joe, what've you got to show,
Twenty four years now and not a single penny to your name,
Well that may be the case, but if you want the truth,
I've spent a lot of time, spent a lot of time,
spent a lot of time, spent a lot of time,
Spent a lot of love on you.

Track Name: Boy On A Promise
The Book Club - "Boy On a Promise"

Down in the reading room I hypothesise your thoughts but,
I cannot find the words,
So I'll just take it slow, don't want to peak too soon can't, think of anything worse.

The boy on a promise, floats up the stairs...

It has been three weeks now,
Of playing cat and mouse so,
I leave a block of cheese outside your door,
But you don't take the bait and push on through the gate,
Without paying the toll.

The boy on a promise, floats up the stairs,
But his sleeping beauty, don't care.

-

The boy on a promise, floats up the stairs,
But his sleeping beauty, she don't care.

The boy on a promise, floats up the stairs,
But his sleeping beauty, don't care.

Track Name: Sad Start
The Book Club - "Sad Start"

What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day.

What a sad start to the day,
They're hanging another this morning,
A boy of only fifteen,
Though they claim he's a threat to the nation,
And what it has become;
Indoctrination, immaculate uniforms,
Still they'll never know,
How it can feel when you think for yourself.

And still the brave body falls,
Like a heavy stone thrown into the water,
For all the people to see,
That our behaviour is not tolerated,
But still, we may succeed,
For their tanks and their cannons cannot run on water,

But out in the forest,
The trees will disguise,
So stoke up the fire and then,
The edelweiss pirates survive

Alas I digress,
I cannot ignore the law of this melody,
That skips through my head,
As a soldier boy runs home to his sweetheart.

And out in the forest,
The trees will disguise,
So stoke up the fire and then,
The edelweiss pirates survive.

What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day.

What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day,
What a sad start to the day.
