Skylon (Allen/Lindsey)

We'll get the tube nice and early
Pack a lunch and beat the crowds
The south bank never saw such wonders
Catch the mood the sights the sounds

Stacking chairs a thing of wonder
Sculpted molecules of soap
You look so beautiful in nylon
Vivid hues that give us hope

You and I should learn a language
See the Rhine from our Vauxhall
Move out to a garden suburb
Tomorrow's here for one and all

We could meet there
By the Skylon
Floating in the summer sky
Together we can see the future
On the river
Passing by

They say there'll be a train to Europe
Lunch in Paris tea in Rome
We'll have German pals and colleagues
A new TV in every home

Windrush friends are such a tonic
Shrinking world let's take a trip
Clean design, the art of plastic
Frothy coffee on your lip

You and I are on the radar
Vapor trails across the blue
We sign the sky with such a flourish
Roll on 1952
