Written by Ian, actually about Sidmouth Folk Week, but it applies to any music festival. Part of a two track single with Acrobats.


We leave our beds
We greet the day
We pack our bags
Now we’re on our way

We come by Car
We come by train
We wait all year
To be here again

And now
It’s Time to sing
So raise your voice
And let’s be happy

We’ve got our boots,
We’ve got our Macs
We’ve got fresh clothes
Inside our back packs.

We pitch our tents
We stake our claim
We watch the skies
And hope there won’t be rain

Dance all night ‘cause it just feels right
Dance all night with a stranger

We hear the band
We feel the song
We dance in step,
And we all sing along

It’s really real
It’s really here
It’s really now,
And we’ll be back next year
