Ep72: A Message To The People of 2020

Ep. 72

Frank and Uncle Claude offer a much-needed burst of optimism by performing their own unique version of Ivor Novello's We'll Gather Lilacs, which despite having been written in the 1940s, is arguably the song of the moment. Merry Christmas to all, Happy New Year, see you all in 2021. A plinkety-plonk and a tinkety-tonk.

Although you’re far away

And life is sad and grey

I have a scheme, a dream to try

I’m thinking, dear, of you

And all I meant to do

When we’re together, you and I

We’ll soon forget our care and pain

And find such lovely things to share again

We’ll gather lilacs in the spring again

And walk together down an English lane

Until our hearts have learned to sing again

When you come home once more

And in the evening by the firelight’s glow

You’ll hold me close and never let me go

Your eyes will tell me all I want to know

When you come home once more
