BBC to Captain Tom By Robin Parker (With gratitude to and inspiration from David Bowie)

BBC to Captain Tom BBC to Captain Tom You took your walking frame and put your medals on To walk the garden, Captain Tom A thousand pounds, a marathon For NHS and all the work they’ve done for you This is Breakfast News to Captain Tom You’ve really made the grade And our viewers want to see how much you raise They’re heaping you with money and with praise This is Captain Tom to Breakfast News They’ve been so good to me That I’ll help them in my own centenary way And I’m trying to give them something back today So here......... Am I walking round the garden Day after day, Sun keeps shining through And the money’s coming too.... Though I’m passed one hundred thousand pounds I’m feeling very well, And my walking frame, it knows which way to go A hundred laps my target is you know BBC to Captain Tom You’ve done so well a million’s on Now 10 million Captain Tom 20 million Captain Tom 30 million Captain Tom So here......... Am I walking round the garden Day after day, Sun keeps shining through And the money’s coming too....
