Far, Far Away A Long Time Ago
High On A Hill Overlooking The Shore
There Stood A Castle Built From Stone
It Stood There, Timeless,Yet All Alone
Living In The Castle Was A fair young Maid
Imprisoned There By Her Father, Who Had Claimed
She Had Fallen In Love With A Young Vagabond
Who was Up to No Good All Over The Land
Day After Day She Would Pace The Floor
Hopelessly In Love, Like Never Before
Orpheus|! Oh Orpheus Where Have You Gone ?
Leaving Me To Cry,Here, All Alone
Please Please Come And Rescue Me
Just One Kiss Would Set Me Free!
She Waited In Her Prison
Day After Day
Then She Heard A Galloping Horse
From Not Far Away
She Rushed To her Window
To Take A Look
She Couldn’t Believe Her Eyes
So She Had To Look Twice!
There On His Trusty Steed…………….Dobbin!
Was Orphus,She Started Sobbing
Oh Have You Come To Rescue Me?
Of Course Sweetheart, But Don’t You See
I have Travelled So Far To Set You Free
Would You Mind Making Me A Nice Cup Of Tea!
Yorkshire, Of Course And No Sugar For Me
After Orphy Had Supped His Brew
He started Out To Rescue You-Know-Who!
Well she was so relieved To Be Set Frree
She immediately Bent Down On One Knee
Orpheus, Oh! Orpheus, My Saviour,Please
Will You Marry Me?
And So They Were Wed The Two Of Them
They Celebrated By Drinking De Month Of Crème!
So years Passed By And Before They were Past It
They Had Seven Children, The Last Named Thatsit!
And Although That Isn’t The End Of This Story
But Because Our Orphy Needs A Moment Of Glory
My Story Now Must Come To An End
Cos Orphus Is Calling Me ………………
Time For Bed My Friend!
