Three Friends – School Days

The bell rings
And all things are calling
The days past
The play’s cast
Remember
September
When we were
Together, together, together

Schooldays, the happy days
When we were going nowhere
Schootime, the happy time
When we were feeling no care

Schooldays when three said
That we’d better be friends forever
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange

Did kites fly
And I spy
And you cry to run fast
Or come last
You know how we made vows
They’re gone now
We made friends, we broke friends
No more friends

Schooldays, the happy days
When we were going nowhere
Schootime, the happy time
When we were feeling no care

How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change

How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change

Remember
Remember when we
Together
Went to the sea

Seagull’s scream and pink ice cream
And the deep blue sky and the waves seem high
And golden sand and the town
Brass band plays on

Wait for me
Wait for us always
Wait for me
Wait for us to come

Mister Watson wants to see you
In the master’s room
It’s about the work you should have done
And I think you must go now

We may go
Go, go, go

How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
How long is ever isn’t it strange
Schooldays together why do they change
