Margarita

  • (Harvey Andrews)

    They're playing our song, Margarita; dance it this last time with me
    It won't be long, Margarita; soon I'll be overseas
    Let me know that you'll care when I've gone over there
    They're playing our song, Margarita; dance it this last time with me

    Kiss me again, Margarita, give me a memory of you
    They say in France, Margarita, one more push, we'll be through
    Yes I'll write, but where from? All they'll say is the Somme
    So kiss me again, Margarita, give me a memory of you

       It's a new world, Margarita, we'll build, when it's through
       In that new world, Margarita, we'll be wed, me and you

    My old great-aunt Margarita, she'd been blind thirty years
    Would tell me of young Margarita, of her man and her tears
    She would say, He was tall, there's his picture on the wall
    My old great-aunt Margarita, she'd been blind thirty years

    She would ask, Is he smiling? I would stare at the frame
    But the sun was there shining through her window again
    Where that sun always shone he had faded and gone
    But she would ask, Is he smiling? I would say, He's the same

       It's a new world, Margarita, we'll build, when it's through
       In that new world, Margarita, we'll be wed, me and you

    Repeat 1

  • [1989:] I have an aunt, Margaret. She is eighty-seven now. Her boy-friend went to the First World War and was killed there. She never married. - This song wasn't actually written about her, but it fitted her situation so exactly that when I heard the song I had to sing this one. (Intro Iain MacKintosh)
