about

Sung to each of the kids when babes in arms, words adapted later to tell the story

lyrics

I will bring you flowers in the morning
I will come to you through the rainstorm
Who cares about the words when you’re walking
Up and down trying to get a bleeding kid to stop bawling

Lord are you friends are you friends with me?
Lord are you friends with me?
I could not be sure of your love at all
Walking up and down till half past three
Lord why do miracles have to be so noisy?

Joe came along then Jim came along then Tom came along
Then Matt came along then Harry came along then Ben came along
Walking up and down singing flowers in the morning
Half a bleeding life trying to get a bleeding kid to stop bawling

Lord are you friends are you friends with me?
Oh Lord are you friends with me?
I could not be sure of your love at all
Till they went to sleep at half past three
Lord why do miracles have to be so noisy?

Liz came along and Joe was a goner then Loz came along
Then Tash came along and a little while later Sadie
Then Bob came along and Jim was a goner then Cos and Erasmia
Sas came along and Tom was a goner that’s just so far

Lord are you friends are you friends with me?
I know that you’re friends with me
I just need to look around at all the love in the world
At all these bleeding kids and now DG
Who cares if miracles need to be noisy?
