School Days

Album: Three Friends (1972)
  • The bell rings
    And all things
    Are calling
    The days past
    The play's cast
    When we were
    Schooldays the happy days when we were going nowhere
    Schooldays the happy time when we were feeling no care
    Schooldays when three said that we'd better be friends forever
    How long is ever isn't it strange
    Schooldays together why do they change

    Did kites fly
    And I spy
    And you cry
    To run fast
    Or come last
    You know how
    We made vows
    They're gone now
    We made friends
    We broke friends
    No more friends

    Remember when we
    Went to the sea
    Was it real or did we dream. The days of children gone
    Seagull's scream and pink ice cream and the deep blue sky
    And the waves seem high and golden sand and the town
    Brass band play on
    Wait for me
    Wait for us always
    Wait for me
    Wait for us to come
    Homework's dull. It's worth the pain to go out when I want
    Mister Watson wants to see you in the master's room. It's
    About the work you should have done and I think you
    Must go now
