Albion Sunrise

When the sun comes up in the morning
and you hear the dancing boys
Mother, leave your pots and pans,
sister, leave your toys.
If you have to break a camel's back
or pull the crowds apart
You'll find a way to get there when
that old time music starts.
Chorus:
Just down the street there's a rattling sound,
There's a country band playing hand me down.
And it's a jamboree.

It was in my father's father's time, they knew a rolling air,
And the Albion boys will show you how, they sang it everywhere.
And if you come along with us you're numbered as a friend
And the faded flower of England will rise and bloom again.

Just down the street there's a rattling sound,
There's a country band playing hand me down.
And it's a jamboree

The dancers standing three and three are a most illustrious sight;
If someone saw a better one then you surely know he lied.
You can hear the bells a-ringing as the singer calls them on,
They can dance away the night and day and never step it wrong

that morphed itself
into this; or was it
the other way round?

and this piece of work,our
first major look at England,
morphed back into its original form
