A love in verse

New Joys

Performed by
Thomas Coombes

If I had time and money 

I’d take you on a cruise

But lack of cash ain’t funny

And time is hard to lose

Come with me on a trip then

Around our treasured past

The wine of joy we’ll sip then

A vintage that will last

To Hampstead, Hornsey, Oldham,

And Brentford’s golden years

Such memories – we’ll hold ‘em – 

Good times outweigh the tears

The future though is waiting 

To give us more than gold

New joys now creating

While we stand brave and bold

With so much going for us

Cash thoughts won’t be a bar

I hear the Lord implore us

To value what we are

Two young folks going far. 



I sing an Edinburgh song:

Of love in bed all morning long

(We never made that lunchtime show)...


The days would have been rainier

The dark sky never clear

If you’d gone to Tasmania...
