40-40 Home Songtext
Think in time

Early evening light will start to fade

And we'll be called inside

To wait for chance to say

Can I stay out late or maybe just an hour

But when you call I know that all I have to say is...

Forty Forty Home

You never could catch me

With a stocking and a ball

Around the world a Yo-Yo spun

You would skip and I would run

Those long days are slipping away



Days will pass

Taking turns to hide and lose our way

And beats will change the rhythm of the year

A worn out gate will swingalongasister

And running out calling to a friendly teaser

Forty Forty Home

You never would catch me

My ball against the wall

But around the world a Yo-Yo spun

Dodge the conkers one by one

But yours always came my way

Cross my path was something

I could not expect again

From beast to beauty, beautiful remain

Slide this way

Don't leave your past in shadow

And paper plane will fly your way on golden wings of...

Forty Forty Home

So now you have caught me

Your stocking said it all

Played the game and won, two, three

Made your move and captured me

So never let me go



Counting the spots on the lino

It seemed such a waste of time

But can't you stick to your side of the garden?

And I to mine!

Forty Forty Home

You never would catch me

My ball against the wall

But around the world a Yo-Yo spun

Dodge the conkers one by one

But yours always came my way
