Her man's been gone
For nigh on the year
He was due home yesterday
But he ain't here
Her man's been gone
For nigh on the year
He was due home yesterday
But he ain't here

Down your street your crying is a well-known sound
Your street is very well known, right here in town
Your town is very famous for the little girl
Whose cries can be heard all around the world
Oooooooo...
Oooooooo...

We have a remedy
You'll appreciate
No need to be so sad
He's only late
We'll bring you flowers and things
Help pass your time
We'll give him eagle's wings
Then he can fly to you

Fa la la la la la
Fa la la la la
Fa la la la la la
Fa la la la la
Fa la la...

We have a remedy
Fa la la la la la la
We have a remedy
Fa la la la la la la
We have a remedy
Fa la la la la la la

We have a remedy.
We have!
Little girl guide,
why don't you stop your crying?
Here comes Ivor the old city engine driver to make you feel alright

My name is Ivor
I'm an engine driver
I know him well
I know why you feel blue
Just 'cause he's late
Don't mean he'll never get through
He told me he loves you
He ain't no liar, I ain't either
So let's have a smile for an old engine driver
Let's have a smile for an old engine driver

Soon be home
Soon be home
We'll soon
We'll soon, soon, soon be home
Soon be home
Soon be home oh yeah
We'll soon
We'll soon, soon, soon be home

We'll soon be home
Soon be home ...

Dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang

Cello, cello, cello, cello, cello, cello
Cello, cello, cello, cello, cello, cello
Cello, cello, cello, cello, cello, cello
Cello, cello, cello, cello, cello, cello
Cello, cello, cello, cello, cello, cello

I can't believe it
Do my eyes deceive me?
Am I back in your arms?
Away from all harm?
It's like a dream to be with you again
Can't believe that I'm with you again

I missed you and I must admit
I kissed a few and once did sit
On Ivor the Engine Driver's lap
And later with him, had a nap
You are forgiven,
you are forgiven,
you are forgiven...
Forgiven, forgiven, forgiven forgiven, forgiven,
You are forgiven
Come on baby
Don't let you lie
Oh you're forgiven
Don't let you make me cry
Baby
You are...forgive...
en...
You are forgiven, forgiven, forgiven forgiven
You're all forgiven!
