Bo Lyr Req/Add:The Biplane 'Evermore' (Martin Cooper) (19) Lyr Add: THE BIPLANE 'EVERMORE' 21 Jul 97

Pretty impressive, Tim Jaques, I cheated and pulled out the Rovers Best of CD. It's substantially the same as your post.

(Martin Cooper)

Way out in London Airport, in hangar number four,
A lonely little biplane sat whose name was Evermore.
His working days were over, and no more would he sail
Upon his wings, above the clouds, flying the Royal Mail.

Bye, bye, biplane, once upon a sky plane,
Bye, bye, hush a bye, lullaby plane.

All the mighty jet planes would look down their nose.
They'd laugh and say, "Oh, I'm so glad that I'm not one of those."
And Evermore would shake away a teardrop from his wings
And dream of days when he again could do heroic things. CHORUS

Then one day the fog and rain had closed the airport down,
And all the mighty jet planes were helpless on the ground.
When a call came to the airport for a mercy flight.
It would be too late. They could not wait. Someone must fly tonight.

So they rolled the little biplane onto runaway number five,
And though he looked so small and weak, he knew he could survive;
And as he rose into the fog, the big jets hung their wings
And they hoped one day like Evermore to do heroic things. CHORUS

And so, me biddy bundle, I have spun a tale for you.
You must learn there's nothing in this world you can't do.
Do not be discouraged by circumstance or size.
Remember Evermore, and set your sights up in the skies. CHORUS
