A song from Beulah - A Folk Musical by The Flanagan Collective


I’ll pack a lunch box
And you light the fire
You pitch the tent
I’ll rig the trip wire
I’ll light the candles
If you do the soap
The tinned beans and sausages
Jumper, vest and coat

And you turn the sound down
We’ll hear what’s outside
Turn off the heating
Open the windows wide
No space for the porch
The guy ropes hanging loose
Bring the duvet from the bedroom
Put the airbed to use

And camp with me on honeymoon in the front room
And stay with me, just like this, bride and groom
And I’ll keep you, so safely here in these arms
And hold me and we’ll come to no harm

And I’ll make the coffee
And you pour the wine
And I’ll do the toast
Three meals at the same time
You crush the crumble
The custard’s on the boil
I’ll take the shop potatoes
And roll them in soil

We’ll phone sick in the morning
And listen to the birds
Make up what they’re saying
Giving them all words
Take a cruise in the bathtub
A safari in the park
DJ on the ipod
And dance when it’s got dark

And we’ll stay forever here in our world
The kingdom of a dreamy boy and loved girl
And remember this, keener than the last night
If we love enough we’ll make it all come right

And we’ll stay, always locked in this bliss
And I will scrapbook each and every kiss
And paint them back on to my lips
I will keep you always and I’ll always keep this

And I’ll love in every way I know how
And I’ve had such happy times, more than I’m allowed
And I wish on every star in my sky
That it’s always me and you and you and I
