Singalong to the sound of trams

All together now:

When you go will you send back a letter from Edinburgh?
Take a look up the tramtrack from Stockbridge to Morningside

Well
Broke off the contract the other day

I spent the evening thinking
About all the cash that flowed away.
Across the table to the white elephant

I wonder how more we'll spend until we reach the promised end.

When you go will you send back a letter from Edinburgh?
Take a look up the tramtrack from Stockbridge to Morningside

I've looked at the roadworks
Tried hard to imagine
The way you feel when you're diverted
From the West End to the Meadows.
We should have stopped them
We should have told them

But you know their sense of timing
They got away too long.

When you go will you send back a letter from Edinburgh?
Take a look up the tramtrack from Stockbridge to Morningside.

Smooth travel no more
Patience no more
Buses no more
Tram stop no more!

Smooth travel no more
Patience no more
Buses no more
Tram stop no more!

Smooth travel no more
Patience no more
Buses no more
Tram stop no more!

I wonder my bus
Will you ever return
To help us make our way back to a living capital city?
Do we not love her
I think we all tell you hard stories

Do we have to roam the world to prove how much it costs?

When you go will you send back a letter from Edinburgh?
Take a look up the tramtrack from Stockbridge to Morningside.

The Castle no more
Princes Street no more
Leith Walk no more
Shopping no more.

The Castle no more
Princes Street no more
Leith Walk no more
Shopping no more.

The Castle no more
Princes Street no more
Leith Walk no more
Shopping no more.

The Castle no more
Princes Street no more
Leith Walk no more
Shopping no more.




Sorry about that - and apologies to the Proclaimers, and to musicians who are now rocking back and forward and saying "make him stop".

Mind how you go!

Yeah yeah... stop rubbing it in. After all the grief I've been giving you about how great trams are...

And where is the link to my glorious blog on your home page?

You'e got to be special to get a link on my blog, you've got to know, for instance, why your blog's called "Leaves on the line" and some other stuff...
