Darlington oh Darlington

Apoligies to Jimmy Webb

Darlington, oh Darlington
I still hear your Tees winds blowing
I still see Rishis dark eyes glowing
In May he’s 41
When I moved to Darlington

Darlington, oh Darlington
I still smell the Parmo Melting
While I watch the Quakers losing
I clean my toilet seat for fun
And dream of Darlington

I still see her standing by Wilkos
Standing there looking out Skerne
And is she waiting there for me?
Across to B&M we used to run

Darlington, oh Darlington
I am so afraid of moving
I see the civil servants crying
Before I watch my colleagues flying away from the sun
To Darlington, oh Darlington
