    Lyrics

    (brooker / reid) *

    In the wee small hours of sixpence
    And the lighted chandelier
    Stands a rusty old retainer
    Whose old eyes are filled with tears
    For his master, good sir galant,
    Who is now off to the wars
    And although his eyes are crying
    We know grief is not the cause
    And if grief is not the reason
    He must be of sterner stuff
    And his sword though old and rusty
    Must be blunt as sharp enough

    In the wee small hours of sixpence
    And the broken window pane
    Stand the remnants of the evening
    Who are waiting all in vain
    For the crowing of the cockerel
    Showing morning is not night
    But the air is filled with silence
    And the daylight is not bright
    But still darkness is no reason
    We are men of sterner stuff
    And our swords though old and rusty
    Still are blunt as sharp enough.

    In the wee small hours of sixpence
    And the hat-stand in the hall
    Waiting only for the morning
    Shadows flitting 'cross the wall
    And perhaps that old retainer
    Whom now giving of his all
    May have once been just as we are
    And now has no face at all.
    But still grief was not the reason
    He was made of sterner stuff
    And his sword though old and rusty
    Still was blunt as sharp enough.
