Just a song

Come away

text

Daddy, daddy, come and look
See what I have found
A little ways away from here
While digging in the ground…

Come away Melinda,
Come in and close the door
It’s nothing, just a picture-book
They had before the war.

Daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, come and look
Why, there’s four or five
Little Melinda girls
Inside my picture book?

Come away Melinda,
Come in and close the door
There were lots of little girls like you
Before they had the war.

Oh Daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, hurry do
Why, there’ssomeone
In a pretty dress,
She’s all grown up like you…
Won’t you tell me why?

Come away Melinda,
Come in and close the door
That someone is your Mummy
You had before the war.

Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can,
Why can’t things be
The way they were
Before the war began?

Come away Melinda,
Come in and close the door
The answer lies in yesterday
Before they had the war…
