Save a day


To save a day
lets run far away
across the seven seas.
Like adam and eve
we'll hide amongst the trees.

Just you and me
oh lets run away
and sit by the boats
at the edge of the world.
I'll earn our keep
by playing drums
as you dance around.

To save a day
lets run away
we'll cross lands
that cars dare not go
and climb like monkeys
to the tops of trees.

You and me what wonder we'll see
we'll fight the bad and win the day
then carry on home for tea.

Oh, would it not be nice to get away
if just for this one day.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
