Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire, is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Far have I travelled and much have I seen
Darkest of mountains with valleys of green
Vast painted deserts, the sunsets on fire
As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire, is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather, like deer in the glen
Carry me back to the days I knew then
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire, is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
Still take me back where my memories remain
Flickering embers grow higher and high
As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire, is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire, is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sleepy head, kid sister
Lying on the floor
18 years and younger, boy
Well she knows what she's waiting for

Yuki's a cool school mistress
She's an oriental princess
She shows films in the classroom, boy
They put the paper on the windows

Ah what can the sisters do
Ah Girls school

Head nurse is Sister Scala
Now she's a Spanish doll
She runs a full body outcall massage parlour
From the teacher's hall

Ah what can the sisters do
Ah Girls school

Well now Roxanne's the woman trainer
She puts the kids to bed
She gives them pills in a paper cup
And she knocks them on the head

Ah what can the sisters do
Ah Girls school
Ah what can the sisters do
Ah Girls school

She shows films in the classroom, boy
They put the paper on the windows

Ah what can the sisters do
Ah Girls school

Ah what can the sisters do
Ah Girls school

Ebony and Ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, Oh lord, why don't we

We all know that people are the same where ever you go
There is good and bad in everyone
Learn to live, we learn to give each other
What we need to survive, together alive

Ebony and Ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, Oh lord, why don't we

Ebony, Ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, Ivory, Ooh

We all know that people are the same where ever you go
There is good and bad in everyone
We learn to live, when we learn to give each other
What we need to survive together alive

Ebony and Ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, Oh lord, why don't we

Side by side on my piano keyboard, Oh lord, why don't we

PIPES OF PEACE - 14/01/1984
2 weeks at #1 - 12 weeks on chart

I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disappear
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

All round the world
Little children being born to the world
Got to give them all we can till the war is won
Then will the work be done
Help them to learn songs of joy instead of burn, baby, burn,
Let us show them how to play the pipes of peace
Play the pipes of peace

Help me to learn
Songs of joy instead of burn, baby, burn,
Won't you show me how to play (how to play)
The pipes of peace (pipes of peace)
Play the pipes of peace

What do you say (do you say)
Will the human race be run in a day (in a day)
Or will someone save this planet we're playing on
Is it the only one
What are we gonna do
Help them to see (help them to see)
That the people here are like you and me (like you and me)
Let us show them how to play (how to play)
The pipes of peace (pipes of peace)
Play the pipes of peace

I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disappear
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

Life goes on day after day
Hearts torn in every way

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay

People they rush everywhere
Each with their own secret care

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
And always take me there
The place I love

People around every corner
They seem to smile and say
We don't care what your name is boy
We'll never turn you away

So I'll continue to say
Here's where I always will stay

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay

Life goes on day after day
Hearts torn in every way

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay
Here I'll stay
Here I'll stay

This land's the place we love
Ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land is the place we love
So ferry 'cross the Mersey
So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay yeah
