It wasn’t very far
We need’n’t go by car
Up to the Castle then along to a bar
The crowds gathered together
Despite the windy weather
Like being at sea
Up at the castle so free
Town’s horizon looming behind
A salty tale so sure we’d find
Poets gathered to hear the rhymes
And sad reflections on our times
They’d spruced up the castle that noble crew
It all looked bright and fresh and new
The people picnicked on the grass
Watched, listened, as the hours passed
We heard funky music down below
Up with the lights! On with the show!
So much to see and do
Kids and babies joined in too
Met with friends both old and new
Went for a beer and went to the loo
Reminds us of our simple start
On this tiny island with its huge heart
