Don't cry now it's all over...the truth will be back! ;-)

Oh what a circus, oh what a show
London has gone to town
Over something called 'The Olympic Games'.
We've all gone crazy
Cheering all day and cheering all night,
Falling over ourselves to catch a glimpse
 Of this wonderful sight!

Oh what a spectacle, one not to miss!
When the curtain rose on the games

We all sat there, enthralled,whilst
Being told,
‘Watch this two -week, theatre unfold!’
And it’s good for the country (in a roundabout way
We made the...
 Front page of the world's papers, next day!

Don't cry now it’s all over!
The truth is, that in four years,
This magic show,
(although some distance)
It will return.
So hide those wet tears.

Don’t cry now it’s all over,
The truth is, we’ll always love you,
Tom D, Jess Ennis,
Handball and tennis
Bolt, Blake and Mo
And that man, Coe!

Four years fly by, as we well know!
Remember Bejiing '08?
The handover got us prepared!
And that red London bus and the fun that was shared.
We all went crazy,
Cheering all night, at the thought of the games!
‘’Roll on London 2012’’

Four years will fly by, as we well know!
We’ll be going to Rio,
Handing over tonight, to those in Brazil,
Going nuts at the thought of a new spectacle!
So goodbye London,
You’ve done us proud, we’ll never forget all your tricks!
Roll on Rio, two zero one six!

Have I said too much?

There's nothing more I can think of to say to you.

But all you have to do is look at me to know

That every word is true.

Nice one London!!!;-)

You know!
I was sitting in the lounge
When I looks across to her,
You know, blogger indoors or she who must blog
And there next to her on the sofa
Tim bloody Rice
That's who
Thank God it wasn't Lloyd Webber
It would have clashed with me Brightman prints
