Captain, oh our Captain.
We knew you not before
Yet twice you answered England’s call
In peace and times of war.
Proudly you stood
To face the foes
With each step forward,
Heels to toes.
Around his garden, a Yorkshireman,
On a walking mission to raise a grand,
Captured all our hearts, brought
Hope sweeping across the land.
Tomorrow will be a good day,
But this eve we weep, we cry
For our hero has now left and
A centurion stands guard on high.
Thank you for entering our lives
We’re glad we knew you before
You had to leave, so farewell, with much love,
Our Captain, Sir Tom Moore.
