SPEED ON LITTLE LADY, SPEED ON




Across the moonlit land



The night is shifting fast



We must be there before the breaking dawn



There is no time at hand



To seek respite in rest



We must be there before the day is born





Upon a lonely shore



My lover waits for me



We must be there before the night is gone



Apart we’ll be no more



My lover will be free



Speed on little lady, speed on



Speed on little lady, speed on



Towards the dawn, towards the sun



Speed on little lady, speed on



Then you shall rest, your journey done





Then we will sail away



To a land across the sea



Where freedom is valued more than gold



We will know a better day



Hearts and minds will be free



To dream, and see all our dreams unfold






Terry Maltby
