Morningtown Mantra

For everyone, but especially all who are involved in a parkrun today. To the tune of “Morningtown Ride” (Rocking, Rolling, Riding)

Right, let’s get ready:

It’s a running day,

Some of us are children

And some just feel that way !

Run, jog, walk or crawling

Out along the way

Dreaming of week 9 run 3,

Graduation Day.

We don’t have an engine,

We don’t need a bell,

Knowing you’re out running

Helps me run as well.

Run, jog, walk or crawling etc

Maybe it is raining

Where our feet must stride

But no-one gets fitter

Sitting down inside !

Run, jog, walk or crawling etc

Some time we will triumph,

Some time this will pay,

Some day you, and I as well,

Will achieve 5k.

Run, jog, walk or crawling etc.

Enjoy !

Not long now. Just as well - I was struggling for tunes this week. But it’s been a hard week for running too, so maybe it’s all related 😄

I hadn't wanted to mention the C word to you having read your previous post, but it's there now!

Can you do anything with The Snowman? ☃️☃️❄😊

Congratulations BCK on writing another great poem which can be set to music, the last six lines are especially good as they apply to many including yourself. I look forward to you writing running versions of Christmas 🎄songs 🎶

Listen to Moo Moo Land for bewildering lyrics. Love that one as well 😁

It’s by KLF. It features the late great Tammy Wynette on lead vocals. It’s a belter and guaranteed to make you smile
