Time to Retire

Tune: Wild Mountain Thyme (Traditional)

Lyrics: Barefoot Sociologist

For M & N’s and U & H’s Retirement Celebration 17th June 2018

Recorded 16th December 2018, sung by Barefoot Sociologist & A. Kus

1. Now it’s time for you to Retire

To begin another journey

In this earthly Incarnation

Where your task is to each other

Chorus: You will Retire, yes Retire

And we give you all our Blessings,

Love and Happiness, Peace and Laughter

For your work here it is over

Time to Retire, yes Retire.

 

2. Camphill has changed in your time

Growing paperwork, changing policies,

Challenging pupils, overworked staff

Yet your purpose never wavered

Chorus: You will Retire, yes Retire

And we give you all our Blessings,

Love and Happiness, Peace and Laughter

For your work here it is over

Time to Retire, yes Retire.

 

3. You are the Pillars of Camphill

All your years of selfless service

Lived by Deeds, Words and Actions

Inspired all who met and loved you.

Chorus: You will Retire, yes Retire

And we give you all our Blessings,

Love and Happiness, Peace and Laughter

For your work here it is over

Time to Retire, yes Retire.
