Thank You - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


I thank me, i thank you
I thank dixie and pete too
I thank teddy for a sweet scene
Eddie for the jokes inbetween
I thank me, i thank you
I thank ollie and chris too
I thank janet for the meat pies
Snibbley for the soldering iron blues

I thank heather for the waterfall
And georgie for his yankee drawl
And cassie is a gas with his
"wo issen das?", mr. dream

I thank nicky for the record machine
I thank ricky for the discount between
I thank eric for his hotlegs
Kev and lol for billy bean's machine
