The Last Assembly

Ray Davies, released on Schoolboys in Disgrace, © Davray Music Ltd. 1976

.

As I walked to the last assembly,

There were tears in the back of my eyes,

And I saw all my friends all around me,

They were there to wish me goodbye.

.

As I stood in a line with my comrades,

I felt such a feeling of pride,

And I forgot all the grief and the hatred inside,

As we sang for the very last time.

.

Gather round, gather round,

Everybody gather round.

Come and join our last assembly,

Let us smile, wipe away all the frowns.

.

Gather round, gather round,

Everybody gather round.

As we stood at the last assembly,

All my friends came to wish me goodbye.

.

Gather round, gather round,

Gather round, gather round,

Everybody gather round.

As I stand at the last assembly,

I just can't keep the tears from my eyes.
