LYRICS FOLLOW... FORCE TEN GAYLE Music & lyrics © Neil Bastian 2019 I blow in from the East I blow in from the West On a good day, I can make a hurricane seem second best I blow in from the North I blow in from the South You won’t believe the sound that comes exploding from my mouth I’m cooking up a storm I’m raising merry hell I’ll flatten all the trees and blow a hole through your hotel And when I’ve been and gone You’ll lie there, come the dawn And shiver with delight or curse the day that you were born I’m a force ten gale Measured on the Beaufort Scale And I’ll blast you from the past into the future I’m a force ten gale Over hill or sea or dale And I’ll blow your trousers off, cos they don’t suit ya! Oh I’m the only known typhoon that holds a tune Yes, you could say that I’m a musical monsoon When I strike, the only other thing worth knowing Is you won’t know if you’re coming or you’re going! I’m a force ten gale! And I’m filling up your sail And I’ll make your ship come in, laden with treasure I’m a force ten gale! You can plead to no avail Just watch me while I strike you flat with pleasure! Devastation’s at my tail Watch those weathermen turn pale Cos it’s time to tell the tale… of a force ten Gayle!
