lyrics

It seems to me that nothing lasts for ever
The house you used to live in gone away
And your wife has gone to look for better weather
And Pontius Pilate would have had his say
No matter where you look it don’t feel right
And childrens’ stories drift into the night
But you’ll get there on a wing and a prayer
Oh you’ll get there on a wing and a prayer
Yes you’ll get there on a wing and a prayer

And what is self esteem the doctor asks you
And you say you don’t know until it’s gone
They take you to the house beside the fountain
And ask you questions till you can’t go on
A corridor has never been so frightening
Your children wouldn’t recognize you now
But you’ll get there on a wing and a prayer
Oh you’ll get there on a wing and a prayer
Yes you’ll get there on a wing and a prayer

The answer my good friend is in the friendships
You forged before these crazy times began
The doctors don’t know jack about your ailments
And the district nurse has done the best she can
And you remember all the good you gave
Cos when you go they’ll chisel on your grave
You’ll get there on a wing and a prayer
You’ll get there on a wing and a prayer
