Boarding the bus your friends are there
Sit close to the window to watch out and stare
Passing a park, and bypasses too
This wasn't the same in 1982
Plenty of churches were seen on the day
Humps and bumps, the Yorkshire way
Quarry was close, nearing the stretch
The tight little s'bend that zagged to the end
Approaching the village all seemed calm
A ram or a sheep stay close to the barn
Its a very tight road for this long wheel based bus
Turns at the crossroad without much fuss
Slow go the wheels its a very tight turn
Trees hit the mirror does tha' little green fern
Time to get off its single file
A walk to the dorm it felt like a mile
One last chance before the bus pulls away
This is my home now for a fortnight anyway
The First Night.
New off the bus after a long travelled day
Cant make a sound don't have much to say
Seeing these people who know what to do
I follow in line, I don't have a clue
I'm taken one side, ay lad what's ya name
I reply with a smile and they did the same
Clutching my case I was took to a room
Sewing machine, a radio, and an old spinners loom
Leave ya case here lad, run off and play
That was the last I saw of it, for a fortnight anyway
Soon made a friend who is the same today
We wont be separated, no how, no way
The sheets they are cold, and the room is pitch black
I'm left with my thoughts happy and cheery
I'd best go to sleep
My eyes they are weary
