The Movin' Along Song

Born in the middle of the afternoon
In a horse drawn wagon on the old A5
The big twelve wheeler shook my bed
'You can't sleep here,' the policeman said,
'You'd better get born in someplace else
 
Refrain: So move along, get along, move along, get along
Go!
 
Born at the tattie lifting time
In an old bow tent in a tattie field
The farmer said, 'The work's all done
It's time that you were moving on
You'd better get born in someplace else
 
Refrain
 
Born on a common near the building site
Where the ground was rutted by the trailer's wheels
The local people said to me,
'You'll lower the price of property
You'd better get born in someplace else
 
Refrain
 
Born at the back of a hawthorn hedge
When a white hoare-frost lay all around
No Eastern kings came bearing gifts
Instead the order came to shift
'You'd better get born in someplace else
 
Refrain
 
The winter sky was hung with stars
And one shone brighter than all the rest
The wise men came so stern and strict
And brought the order to evict
'You'd better get born in someplace else
 
Refrain
 
Waggon, tent or trailer born
Last month, last year or in far off lands
Born here or a thousand miles away
There's always men nearby who'll say
'You'd better get born in someplace else
 
So move along, get along, move along, get along
Go! Move! Shift!
