"And The Band Played On" as written by and Richard Robinson Christopher Robinson....
(Did you hear Gabriel blow his horn)
Then what sent those blackbirds on the wing?
(Into this house we were born to leave)
Like an arrow shot over the mountain,
Like a bottle tossed in the sea,
I have journeyed, I have traveled,
Now home calls me.

Let's all gather 'round the grand piano.
Let's all raise our glasses in the air.
Give a cheer to the jolly good fellows,
And everyone who's cared.

(Who will mend this wagon wheel)
To put this show on the road.
(The music sounds just like it feels)
Like an arrow shot over the mountain,
Like a bottle tossed in the sea,
I have journeyed, I have traveled,
Now home calls me.

Let's all gather 'round the grand piano.
Let's all raise our glasses in the air.
Give a cheer to the jolly good fellows,
And everyone who's cared.

And the band played on,
Through the storm,
Through the wicked, wicked rain.
And the band played on,
In golden harmony.

(What straw will break this camel's back)
Will we grow to love the load?
(Can't wait to be what time reveals)

Let's all gather 'round the grand piano.
Let's all raise our glasses in the air.
Give a cheer to the jolly good fellows,
And everyone who's cared.
Well, everyone who's cared.
Everyone who's cared.
