It’s easy to get sad and sentimental,

When we know this time is at an end,

We spent our moments in the water,

learning how to dive and how to swim,

The kids got hosed down by their Grand Pa,

They all through flowers on my brothers bride,

Granny fed them in the evenings,

My sister baked the cake in a home made tin,

And with love,

We may be going now family,

We may not know when the next time will be,

But we go with love,

The water in the hills keeps my Old Man’s garden green,

They grew the flowers underneath the lemon trees,

We came together by the blue Wisteria,

We drank champagne to toast my new sister,

The kids got stories from their Grand Pa,

And Granny made their beds with a soft white down,

The plates were out on the verandah,

Their was music as the sun went down,

On us,

We may be going now family,

We may not know when the next time will be,

But we go with love,

Oh you could hear the bell ring,

Oh you could hear the violin,

Oh harmonica on the wind,

Oh you could hear our hearts sing,

With love,

We may be going now family,

We may not know when the next time will be,

But we go with love,
