LUCY SPRAGGANTea And Toast Lyrics
Tom was born in 1942 with eyes of blue and the doctor said his birth was far to fast.
His heart stopped twice but yet he survived as he took his first breath his mother took her last.
And his father knew that he wasn't to blame, but he never quite looked at Tom the same after that.
And he rarely spoke about her but when he did, he said your mother used to say....this
When the skies are looking bad my dear and your heart's lost all its hope, after dawn there will be sunshine and all the dust will go, the skies will clear my darling, I'll wake up with the one I love the most and in the morning I'll make you up some tea and toast
Well they met through a friend who introduced them and the first thing Tom said was would you like to dance.
They moved with each other and when the music got slower he said don't let go of my hand
He said it's only polite if I asked you tonight would it be alright if, I could walk you home.
That night he told her of his birth and said when it hurts he thought about what his mother said about Tea and toast
Well two quick years they went by they was side by side and without a plan they conceived a little child, he said woman I love you and this you know but I only earn enough for our food and clothes, but I'll love you and this baby until the day that I die.
She said we'll take care of this little life and we'll fall in love with her baby blue eyes and we'll be alright from some advice that I know, she said I never got to meet her but if I did I'm sure your mother would of said.... this
When the skies are looking bad my dear and your heart's lost all its hope, after dawn there will be sunshine and all the dust will go, the skies will clear my darling, we'll show this baby all the love we know and in the morning I'll make you up some tea and toast
Well he took those words and he made them proud he worked day after day and hour after hour so they could buy a little house just on the outside of town
The little girl grew up and so did they. They said that they loved each other every day and 40 years later that brings us to now, and as there walking down the street her grip loosens on his his hand he puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground. He hears her breathing and that's the only sound. Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd, tears roll off his face as he says don't let go now. And he's sitting by her bed in the hospital ward and there daughter walks in with a family of her own. She says dad I don't know if she can hear you now but there's one thing mum... would want you to know
When the skies are looking bD my dear and your heart's lost all its hope, after dawn there will be sunshine and all the dust will go the skIEs will clear my darling, now it's time for you to let go, I'm gonna wake you in the morning with some tea and toast Correct these lyrics
