It's cloud's illusions I recall. I really don't know clouds at all.

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

Comfortably Numb
Pink Floyd

Over the Sea to Skye.

Speed bonnie boat like a bird on the wing
Onward the sailors cry.
Carry the lad that's born to be king
Over the sea to Skye
Loud the wind howls
Loud the waves roar
Thunderclaps rend the air
Baffled our foes
Stand by the shore
Follow they will not dare

OK, so I'm really into this theme now! I photographed an event in a village called Kyle in November where there was a dance (of the Scottish variety). Two songs came to mind.

Dancing In Kyle

When the sun has gone down on the dark western islands
Our work is all done for a while.
Then we gather together whatever the weather
And drive to the dancing in Kyle
Now there's Marie and Duncan and Morag and Callum
Fiona and Kenna and Dawn
And were driving from Dornie Glenelg and Killinen
And laughing as we race along.

2. Now Rory will sing of the beauties of Isley
And Seamus of Stornaway's isle
And the finest of dancers will show us the lancers
When we go to the dancing in Kyle
Theres the swirl o the kilt and the skirl o the pipes
And Ken Masons accordion band
And its ah for the eightsome and ah for the jig
And the dashing white seargent is grand.

3. Soon the dawn will be showing the great mountains glowing
And we must drive many a mile
But we'll leave Inverinate and Ardelve and Dornie
Next time that there's dancing in Kyle
And we'll laugh and we'll sing and we'll hueoch and we'll swing
And we'll set to our partners in style
For there's nothing so grand in the whole of the land
As to drive to the dancing in Kyle.

Donald where's your Troosers?

I've just come down
From the Isle of Skye
I'm not very big and I'm awful shy
And the lassies shout when I go by
Donald, where's your troosers

[Chorus:]
Let the wind blow high
Let the wind blow low
Through the streets
In my kilt, I'll go
All the lassies say hello
Donald, where's your troosers

Annie I'm loving this. 10 stars plus.

I'm enjoying looking up the different songs and listening to them sung. Nice images, too.

I got Cool Change by The Little River Band (external link) before reading. Yours works perfect too. :-)


It's my life and I'll get pissed if I want to.

Your choice is good too. I may need to dig for another sailboat picture- not many of them in Nebraska. :-)

I just logged back in to edit my post to, "Yours nails it", but I'm too late. :-P

Click Go The Shears

Out on the board the old shearer stands,
Grasping his shears in his long, bony hands,
Fixed is his gaze on a bare-bellied "joe"
Glory if he gets her, won't he make the ringer go.

(Chorus)
Click go the shears boys, click, click, click,
Wide is his blow and his hands move quick,
The ringer looks around and is beaten by a blow,
And he curses the old snagger with the blue-bellied "joe".

In the middle of the floor in his cane-bottomed chair
Is the boss of the board, with eyes everywhere,
Notes well each fleece as it comes to the screen,
Paying strict attention if it's taken off clean.
(Chorus)

The colonial-experience man he is there, of course,
With his shiny leggin's, just got off his horse,
Casting round his eye like a real connoisseur
Whistling the old tune "I'm the Perfect Lure".
(Chorus)

The tar-boy is there, a-waiting in demand,
With his blackened tar-pot and his tarry hand,
Sees one old sheep with a cut upon its back,
Hears what he's waiting for "Tar here Jack!"
(Chorus)

Shearing is all over and we've all got our cheques,
Roll up your swag for we're off on the tracks,
The first pub we come to, it's there we'll have a spree,
And everyone that comes along it's, "Come and drink with me!"
(Chorus)

Down by the bar the old shearer stands,
Grasping his glass in his thin bony hands,
Fixed is his gaze on a green-painted keg
Glory, he'll get down on it, ere he stirs a peg.

(Chorus)

There we leave him standing, shouting for all hands,
Whilst all around him every shouter stands,
His eyes are on the cask, which is now lowering fast,
He works hard, he drinks hard and goes to hell at last.


This was big in the good old days, and much of Australian (probably New Zealand) folklore is embedded with tales, songs and paintings relating to these
I've used these but not seriously.
Takes me about 20 minutes to shear a sheep.
BY comparison (isn't really any  :p) Starting at 5.00am on Saturday (30 September), at Fernhill Farm, in Compton Martin, Somerset, the two men sheared a total of 397 sheep which was an average of 44 sheep per hour. I'm sure there are other comparisons

And our legendary Tom Roberts - "Shearing the Rams" Painting (external link)

Air Force Song
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At 'em, boys, Give 'er the gun! (Give 'er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing will stop the U.S. Air Force!
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
Sent it high into the blue;
Hands of men blasted the world asunder;
How they lived God only knew! (God only knew then!)
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings, ever to soar!
With scouts before And bombers galore. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
