NELSON

Well a long time ago in 67 a little boy was walking on the beach

When all of a sudden he heard a plaintiff cry so near yet so far out of reach

He looked behind that rock so small and there before his eyes

Was an an oil soaked seagull  lying there windswept with pain in his eyes

And the seagulls name was Nelson

Nelson who came from the sea

And the seagulls name was Nelson

Nelson the seagull free

He fed that seagull limpets small until that bird could fly

And when he thought it was so he let little Nelson go

And he flew above his head into the sky

And the seagulls name was Nelson…………..

The time had come for the boy to go sadness was in their eyes

But it’s not for you to criticize you’ve never seen a seagull cry

And the seagulls name was Nelson………
