Take Me Back


If I could invent a Time Machine,
I know where it would rest,
Back into the Seventies,
Where music was at it's best.

The Sweet were having a Ballroom Blitz,
While we were having fun,
The Thin Lizzy Boys were back in town,
While Wings were a Band On The Run,

We had Melanie riding her pushbike,
With Suzy to Divil Gate Drive,
Lionel Richie dropped by to say Hello,
And the Bee Gees were Stayin Alive.

T.Rex were riding their White Swans,
Crazy Horses were everywhere!
Miss Piggy sat with Kermit,
Halfway down the stairs.

Jasper Carot rode his moped,
The Quo boys were Going Down,
Elton sang of his Yellow Brick Road,
While we cried the Tears Of A Clown.

I really have to go now,
And leave you in the past,
But my love for the Seventies music,
Will well and truly last.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
