Peacock Blue Dress

Good morning my darling I love you
I speak to your smiling face in the frame
You’re the first on my mind in the morning
Forever that smile will remain

Such happy times we had with music
Travelling miles to our favourite bands
All the way home we’d be singing
And when we got home you would dance

Dance in your peacock blue dress
The one that you wore when we first met
Dance in your peacock blue dress
That flows like water around you

Goodnight now my darling I love you
I pass your photograph on the stairs
You’re the last on my mind in the evening
At rest now without any cares

And when you could no longer travel
We brought the music into our house
Family and friends could then join us
Long after the music you’d dance

Dance in your peacock blue dress


Good evening my darling I love you
You can watch tonight’s concert from the from row
I’ve booked a great band you will love them
And in my mind you will dance

Dance in your peacock blue dress
