Anniversary Dinner

Anniversary Dinner

[Tune: Harrow School song ‘Forty Years On’ – J Farmer]

[Now 10] years on and much larger in number
Gathered to dine are the Seniors[Vet’rans] today.
When we look back and forgetfully wonder
Just how appalling’s the golf that we play.
Now it may be that new hope will come o’er you,
Glimpses of birdies shall still draw you on,
Visions of eagles shall float there before you,
As to you bogies, you still hack along.

Follow through! Follow through!
Follow through! Follow through!
‘Don’t look up’ is the constant refrain,
As we swing at the ball once again.
Follow through! Follow through!

[Now 10] years on, growing older and older,
Shorter in wind and our memory gone,
Feeble of foot and rheumatic of shoulder,
What will it help us that once we were strong?
O the great days in the distance enchanted,
Days of fresh air in the rain and the sun,
How we’ve rejoiced as we struggled and panted,
Hardly believable, [10 years] have gone.

Follow through! Follow through!
Follow through! Follow through!
‘Don’t look up’ is the constant refrain
As we swing at the ball once again.
Follow through! Follow through!
