The Long Answer
I woke up to this skirmish with only 5 minutes to go. Lyrics written in 20 minutes but as it’s so early on a Sun everyone in my house is still asleep. I’ll have to record the music later! Lyrics only for now...
THE LONG ANSWER
(c) 2018 Georgie Cooper
Whenever anyone asks where I’m from
I say do you want the long answer or the short one?
I was born in the country of the US of A but then my journey took me far away
At the age of eighteen months I went to Britain
That is where my brother was born
Coz my dad was stationed in Alaska
And mum was waiting patiently for him
At the age of 4 we went to Germany
By then we were a family of 3
As mumma had my sister in 1980
And Dad was stationed there with the Army
After 3 different moves within that country
We finally waved bye-bye to Germany
I was into R&B by then because I was thirteen
And the five of us went off on our journey
Our new house was a horse farm in Wales
Wales is a part of the U.K.
Lots of rolling hills and many, many sheep
That is where I spent all of my teens
At 18 when I left the family home
To Oxford city Uni I did roam
Spent 4 years getting my degree then ha...funny story
Then decided to get married to a Swede
13 years, 3 kids, 1 divorce later
I’m proud to say I’m firmly a UKer
I put down roots and I won’t move again for some time
I’m saving that for when I retire!
