I've held off posting this, because I heard a whisper that there was another filk upcoming on the same subject, to the same tune. However, said filk hasn't appeared and this was going round and round my head and driving me *crazy*. So, if I've stepped on anyone's toes, my apologies.

When We Went Off to Clarecraft
TTTO Day Trip to Bangor, by Fiddler's Dram

Didn't we have a loverly time,
When we went off to Clarecraft
The weather was fine, didn't rain - all the time
And tickets were only 5 quid you know
Even camping was fun, with hugs by the ton
And the bar served some really fine cider
Filking a few of our favourite songs
And the days went by

Do you recall the thrill of it all
As we marvelled at Barry's arse-nal
And later on Afpmad sang some songs
(A little more complex than 'boom-ta-ra-rah')
Whose Disc? was hell, Gid and Eric sang well
Doc and Dog were an absolute wonder
Then we all had a drink, and we slept some - I think
And the night went by

Didn't we have a loverly time,
When we went off to Clarecraft
The weather was fine, didn't rain - all the time
And tickets were only 5 quid you know
Even camping was fun, with hugs by the ton
And the bar served some really fine cider
Filking a few of our favourite songs
And the days went by

Wasn't it fine sipping fruity red wine
Dipping strawberries into Nutella?
Some small plastic moles got out of control
But Peter took the blame for that
We watched folk parade, dressed to masquerade
And everyone looked quite stunning
Then Ali and me had a whiskey or three
And the night went by

Didn't we have a loverly time,
When we went off to Clarecraft
The weather was fine, didn't rain - all the time
And tickets were only 5 quid you know
Even camping was fun, with hugs by the ton
And the bar served some really fine cider
Filking a few of our favourite songs
And the days went by

Sunday dawned bright, though some stayed up all night
And everyone got a bit sunburned
People drifted away, with a sigh they would say
Oh, isn't it a shame to go?
Wouldn't it be grand to have cash on demand
And to live like this all summer?
I wanted to cry as I said my goodbyes
But the day went by

Didn't we have a loverly time,
When we went off to Clarecraft
So our thanks are due to all of the crew
Who made the whole thing so amazing
And though it's gone, the memories go on
As I pick the grass out of my backpack
Rememb'ring a time full of laughter and friends
As the days go by

Joy
