Track 1

Jumpers for Goalposts

Jumpers for goalposts, bread and jam for tea
growin' up in Glasgow that was the place for me.
A shilling for your Glasgow Fair
a week in Saltcoats or in Ayr
Glasgow dear Glasgow, you're always home to me.

Climbing up on midgie bins, swinging from a tree
a hudgie on a dustcart, to be so young and free.
Playing kerby with a ball
Climbing o'er the old school wall
Glasgow dear Glasgow you're always home to me.

Scrambles at weddings to make a bob or two,
fivepence on a bottle back of coke or irn bru.
Friday night for fish and chips
liquorice and sherbet dips
Glasgow  dear Glasgow your always home to me.

Following the football, I'd keep up with the score
'cause standing on the verandah I could hear the Hampden roar.
Throwing snowballs in the park
playing out 'til it got dark
Glasgow dear Glasgow is always home to me.
 


Track 2

The Philosopher and Ska band.

City lights are so bright, but tonight's a different night
I hear the people's plight down by the riverside
Home, home, home I'm thinking of home.

 

The place where good folk meet on the corner of the street
The poet and the working man, the philsopher and Ska band
Home, home home, I'm thinking of home.

I thought I heard Joe Cusker say that there can be a better way.
Everyone will have a home, freedom to speak and freedom to roam
Home, home home, I'm thinking of home


Track 3

Artificial Flowers

Artificial flowers never die
artificial flowers never die
imitation posy or ring a ring a rosie 
artificial flowers never die.

Lilies fragile petals white
tulips bright will fade with light
roses true lose their perfume 
but artificial flowers never die.

Chrysanthemum it's splendour wanes
daffodils have springtime fame
carnation's friendship lasts a while
but artificial flowers never die.

Fresh bouquet in grandeur stood
synthetic fern and acorn wood
watch as nature takes its course
artificial flowers never die
artificial flowers never die.


Track 4

Soundtrack of Life

When life is making you weary 
and nothing is going your way
look up to the sky
hold your head up high
tomorrow will bring a new day

Chorus:
We will sing and dance in the evening 
we will sing and dance at the dawn
though the night may be dark
or your up with the lark
the soundtrack of life carries on.

 

We can step on the stones, cross the river

on the ladder we'll climb every rung
every throw of the dice
all the mysteries of life
the challenges we'll overcome.

Chorus
We will sing and dance in the evening 
we will sing and dance at the dawn
though the night may be dark
or your up with the lark
the soundtrack of life carries on.


The hands on the clock keep on turning
in the blink of an eye they've moved on
to know that each moment is precious
for time is to live not to own.

Chorus
We will sing and dance in the evening 
we will sing and dance at the dawn
though the night may be dark
or your up with the lark
the soundtrack of life carries on. (Repeat chorus)
