The friendly ranger paused
And scooping a bowl of beans
Spreading them like stars
Falling like justice on different scenes

I'm damned, indeed comrade
I'm being bombed
And all the people's faces
Turned strawberry blonde

By the morning gate the friendly ranger waits
For the sun making sure it's not late
Just in time no need to fear well just in case
And all the people are happy for another year

And in the evening shade
He climbs upon the sun
Getting it's glow he goes on
Singing this song

To feel the goodness glowing inside
To walk down a street with my arms about your hips, side by side
To play with a sad eyed child till he smiles
To look at a starry sky at night, realize the miles

To see the sun set behind the steeple
Clontarf Castle no king, queen or knightly people
A coal fire and it's pouring rain
To wave goodbye to a very good friend, never meet again
Little thoughts bring little memories of you to me

LYNOTT, PHILIP PARRIS
