September: September Song

Boots and bottles and a telescope reel

No-one knows just how I feel

Sitting blindly by a Catherine Wheel

I open my arms to you


Write me a song to sing all day long

Catch me a tune to howl at the moon

Watch me waltz on a silver spoon

I open my arms to you


My golden daughter does what she oughta

Reading medical books with whisky and water

The words get longer but never shorter

I open my arms to you


The breakdown came the breakdown went

Forty-four years they were paid and spent

I’ll pack up my shoes and buy a new tent

I open my arms to you


The sun still warms the September air

The grass is green and the day is fair

I look at my life with barely a care

I open my arms to you


The fox it will run and the bat does fly

The poacher stares at the empty sky

Time it passes with no reason to cry

I open my arms to you
