Vln: Marian Givens, Cello: Alison Gillies, Horn: Dave Ransom, Piano: Helen Reid TEXT: Boring, boring, always boring Big, bright, bushy tree Boring, boring, always boring Here for a thousand years Boring, boring, always boring Stuck in here, can’t get out I want to fly in new places Boring, boring, always boring We are frozen, it’s not fair We are statues to you all Wanting to stretch our legs out To escape, to fly, to fall Boring, boring, always boring - We can hear the music We can hear the music inside Seeing people with their books We can’t see through the glass Where are they going? We don’t know! - Sneaking through the grass Swaying his bushy tail Chasing his dark shadow Into the Abbey The cold, gloomy Abbey - The Abbey is huge Inside is so beautiful You can’t take your eyes off the glass of three knights - Climbing up the organ pipes Hiding in the little cracks Griffins guard the benches Dragons flying in the air Owls playing in the tower Monkeys being cheeky Snakes slithering through the cracks of the stone walls With echoes of the animals, with echoes of us all - Very Big and Spacious Candles light this place Hiding in the window Where I have my space - The Abbey is a Home for Everyone But we belong outside We belong outside In the dark crown trees We are going to leave you something Because we must go You will see us again – You never know! - We leave to go back home To see our family and friends We know we will be back when our little spirit calls us again!
