A Song for a Son

"Billy broke out the Farfisa today and we ran it through a "secret weapon" It won't be such a secret on Tuesday when I showcase it and its history in the Tech Tuesday blog ... but for those of you curious as to what it could be... *Hint*(Pink Floyd) used one of these devices on some of their recordings." -Kerry Brown, 2009/09/18 (the "secret weapon" was a Binson Echorec)

 

Lyrics

This is a song for a son
This is a song for a sailor
The son I never had

This is a song for a kid
This is a song for a tailor
Who stitched up my old heart
Who stitched up my old heart

This is a song for a dog
This is a song for a blown-out bird
The kind that don't return to the nest

This is a song for a star
This is a song for a space invader
Who flew into the sun
Never to return
Never to return

And I am one of many
Many more to come
Many more to come
I am one of many more
Many more to come
Many more to come

This is a song for a son
This is a song for a sailor
The best I ever had
He sailed without a map

This is a song for that kid
This is a song for that tailor
Who stitched up my old heart
Who stitched up my old heart
And broke it all apart

I am one of many
Many more to come
Many more to come
I am one of many more
Many more to come
Many more to come

You daughters of the revolution
Carry back your sons
Carry them back home
You daughters of the revolution
Carry back your sons
Carry them back home

And I, I am one of many
Many more to come
Many more to come
