Movement VIII - Peace - 'Dad's In The Garden, He Won't Speak To Mum'

Paul McCartney

SHANTY
And so it was that you were born
Into this world one winter morning,
With a childish innocence you smiled at me
And I was born again.

BOY SOLO
Non nobis solum
Sed toti mundo

BOYS' CHOIR
Nati,
Mundo nati.

BOY SOLO
Toti mundo nati.

MEN'S CHORUS
God is good
And He will be our savior,
All we need
Is in His power to give us.
Let the light that lies within His heart
Illuminate our being.

FULL CHORUS
God is good
And with this thought to guide us
We will live
In joyful contemplation.
Let the love that lives within your heart
Illuminate your being.

PREACHER
What people want is a family life,
The strength of a home and a moat round
the castle.
Pull up the drawbridge,
Staying at home with the family.

All people want is a family life,
Sometimes they find that it isn't so easy.
People can argue,
Life can be hard on a family.

BASSES
Mum's in the kitchen,
she won't speak to Dad.

ALTOS
Uncle's ashamed of the good time he had.

TENORS
Brothers and sisters are lifting the roof
With the music they play all night.

PREACHER
But people still want a family life,
Nothing replaces the love and affection.
Pull up the drawbridge -
Tempers are frayed, but it's like that.

ALTOS
Don't be dismayed if it's like that.

BASSES
Like that.

PREACHER
You're not obeyed but you like that –
Family life.

BOYS and ALTOS
God is good.
In Him we'll live for ever,
Satisfied
Inside His grace and glory,

FULL CHORUS
Safe and sound
In His eternal love
We have found salvation.

NURSE
Dad's In the garden, he won't speak to Mum.

MARY DEE
Mother.

NURSE
Uncle's in bed with a pain in his...

SHANTY
The Devil is evil

PREACHER
And God is good.

MARY DEE
The Devil is evil

SHANTY
With a D.

MARY DEE
And God is good

SHANTY
Without an O.

MARY DEE and NURSE
God is good without an O.

SHANTY and PREACHER
O...

MARY DEE and NURSE
And so we are grateful for harmony
For we will be faithful

SHANTY and PREACHER
Eternally.

MARY DEE, NURSE, SHANTY and PREACHER
(Ah)

FULL CHORUS
(Ah)

God is good,
The universal savior.
Trust in Him
To lead us through the darkness.
Live in love and when the battle's won

MARY DEE and NURSE
Live in peace.

SHANTY and PREACHER
Live in peace.

FULL CHORUS
Live in peace for ever.

SOLO QUARTET
Live in peace.

ALL
Live in peace together.

SHANTY
So on and on the story goes
From day to day throughout our lives.

MARY DEE
What can we do, that's how it grows.
I am with you,

MARY DEE and SHANTY
Our love survives.

END
