You wore your Sunday best
I wore my summer dress
At the Easter bank holiday parade

You said: ‘It seems like a still
From some Nineteen Sixties foreign film”
I said: ” I hope I always feel this way”

The ferry boat came into land
As we lay there upon the sand
And the carnival crowd wandered away

The afternoon began to fade
My make up smudged across your face
You said: “I wish that I could stay”

-Time passes-

At the station I came to wait
We said good-bye, you caught the train
I walked back home along the bay

I remember that summer dress
Though these days I wear something less
Provincial at the

Easter parade
