SONG FOR THE MIRA - - - - - ALLISTER MacGILLIVRAY

Out on the Mira, one warm afternoon,
Old men go fishing, with black line and spoon,
And if they catch nothing, they never complain,
I wish I was with them again.

Now boys in the boats call to girls on the shore,
Teasing the ones, they really adore,
Then into the evening, the courting begins,
I wish I was with them again.

Can you imagine a piece of the universe,
More fit for princes and kings,
I'll trade you ten of your cities for Marion Bridge,
And the pleasure it brings.

Out on the Mira, on a warm summer night,
Campfires are burning, to children's delight,
They dance round the flames, singing songs with their friends,
I wish I was with them again.

And over the ashes, the stories are told,
Of witches and werewolves and Oak Island's gold,
Stars on the riverface flicker and dance,
I wish I was with them again.        

Can you imagine .....

Out on the Mira, the people are kind,
They'll treat you to homebrew and help you unwind,
And if you come broken, they'll see that you mend,
I wish I was with them again.

And now I'll conclude, I wish you go well,
Sweet be your dreams and your happiness swell,
For I leave you here, my journey begins,
I'm going to be with them again.

Can you imagine .....
