One More Time

.

I was walking on the coast road

When the harbour came in view

It was there I saw the hilltop

That I used to walk with you

.

We'd sing of the old country

Now it's such a lonesome climb

Our world faded once when you were mine

.

Why is true love so difficult to find

Wish you were here to see it with me

One more time

Lalalala lalalala lalalala lala

Wish you were here to sing it with me

One more time

.

Those economic vultures

Stole our dreams and told us tales

Then they towed away our culture

To their depot in south Wales

.

Corporations get the tax breaks

While the city gets the crime

The profit's going somewhere

But it isn't yours or mine

.

Still we blindly trust in the divine

Let's sing for the old country

Come on, one more time

Lalalala lalalala lalalala oh oh

Let's sing it loud with feeling

Come on, one more time

.

You know I must be leaving

And I know you've got to stay

But you know that I'll be grieving

When you're so far away

.

And if this should be the last time

I should ever see your face

Let's part with no hard feeling

And a positive embrace

.

And I will speak well of you

When they ask when you were mine

Till then the jet stream up above

Shows us the warning signs

.

Till we meet again bravely walk the line

Let's sing it loud with feeling

Come on, one more time

Lalalala lalalala lalalala oh oh

Let's sing for the old country

Come on, one more, one more time
