Тост



Three Funerals (A Toast)
words & music R A Sutherland


The first man was clever and full of good fun
always ready to entertain everyone
Sharp in his mind and full in his heart
he was taken from this world too young
He could do anything that he put his mind to
and he certainly tried everything
No matter what troubles were bothering you
He knew how to make your heart sing

Oh can you see... can you feel... can you hold?
Oh can you see...can you feel... can you hold?

The next man was strong with fire in his heart
fought for his country with pride
His ship went down and so many of them died
he was lucky to come back alive
Back to a family that he hardly knew
back to a life in a tie and a suit
Taking all jobs just to keep them in shoes
Held his head high 'til the end

Oh can you see... can you feel... can you hold?
Oh can you see...can you feel... can you hold?

There's nothing like a funeral
to make you appreciate life
So raise up your glass and we'll drink to the lost
It's taken us this long to understand anything

The last man was quiet, tried hard to be good
didn't complain when he probably should
have taken a stand and made himself heard
Could never quite be his own man
He made himself sick with the grief and the guilt
that the others had left him behind
A rudderless boat with nowhere to go,
No strength left for the fight

Oh can you see... can you feel... can you hold?
Oh can you see...can you feel... can you hold?

There's nothing like a funeral
to make you appreciate life
So raise up your glass and we'll drink to the loss
It's taken us this long to understand anything
Nothing like a funeral
to make you live more of your life
So savour the good times and learn from the bad
You'll take a whole lifetime to understand anything

Understand just a little bit
Understand just a little bit
