(sung to the tune of 'Danny Boy')
Oh Johnny boy, the planes, the planes are calling
From skyland to skyland, and down to the ocean waves
The Armada’s gone, and all the pirates are flying
It’s you, it’s you must go, and I must stay.
But return when your plane is on the ‘field
Or when the tavern’s hushed and white with fear
It’s I that’ll be there in sun or shade, though
Oh Johnny boy, oh Johnny boy, I love you so.
And if you come, when all the pirates are flying
And the Courtiers are dead as dead we may be
You’ll come and find the place where I’m lying
And kneel and say a pray’r for me.
And I’ll hear your flight, though soft you fly above me
And my dreams warm and sweeter will be
If you won’t fail to tell me that you love me
I simply wait in peace until you come to me.
