Call for British troops to go to Calais

Recommended Posts

This song may not strike a chord with all of you, but

I don't take it as a 'looney left-wing' suggestion to let all the world into the UK (as it might be accused of by the likes of  UKIP)

I hear it as a plea to see them  as individuals with families and people who love them, not as a swarm of bodies on  video filmed on a iPod..

Coming Hame

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1N-N6Z ... 8P&html5=1

Put a light in the window

Your brother's coming home

Set a meal on the table

Your brother's coming home

He'll be tired and weary

After all these years alone

He's coming home, your brother's coming home

Take the chain from the door,

Your sister's coming home

Open wide your arms

Your sister's coming home

Don't leave her standing there

After all the pain she's known

She's coming home, your sister's coming home


Coming home to a place they've never been

Coming home to a land they've never seen

Coming home to a family they have never known

A' Jock Tamson's bairns

Are coming home

He's been angry and afraid

Your father's coming home

He's been hounded and betrayed

Your father's coming home

And with every act of kindness

A seed of hope is sown

He's coming home. Your father's coming home

Bring her in from the cold

Your mother's coming home

Sit her down by the fire

Your mother's coming home

Make her warm, make her welcome

Before the chance is gone

She's coming home, your mother's coming home

From Iraq and Zimbabwe,

Your family's coming home

And from Turkey and Somalia

Your family's coming home

Seeking rest and refuge

They have never known

They're coming home, your family's coming home
