British Medley

It was twenty years ago today
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you will enjoy the show
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sit back and let the evening go
Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Buddy you're a boy make a big noise
Playin' in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on yo' face
You big disgrace
Kickin' your can all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're a young man hard man
Shoutin' in the street gonna take on the world some day
You got blood on yo' face
You big disgrace
Wavin' your banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're an old man poor man
Pleadin' with your eyes gonna make you some peace some day
You got mud on your face
Big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

We don't need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

I get up when I want except on Wednesdays
when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea and I think about leaving the house (parklife)
I feed the pigeons I sometimes feed the sparrows too
it gives me a sense of enormous well
Being (parklife)
And then I'm happy for the rest of the day
safe in the knowledge there will always be a bit
Of my heart devoted to it


Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don't you know you might find
A better place to play
You said that you'd never been
But all the things that you've seen
Will slowly fade away

So I'll start a revolution from my bed
'Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime's in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
You ain't ever gonna burn my heart out

And so Sally can wait, she knows it's too late as we're walking on by
Her soul slides away, "But don't look back in anger," I heard you say

And so Sally can wait
She knows it's too late as she's walking on by
My soul slides away

"But don't look back in anger, don't look back in anger."

I heard you say,

"at least not today."

Viking Longboat Raid

Young man, there’s no need to feel down
Because young man, we’ll invade a new town
And then young man, we can burn it all down,
Once we’ve raided all the houses.

Young man, there’s a place you can go,
That’s right young man, when you’re fed up of snow,
We can sail there, and with the riches we find,
We’ll live out our days like Bjorn Ironside

It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
We’ll land our Dragon boats, we will all go berserk,
It’s a method that always works.
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
We will howl and we’ll roar, we will chew on our shields,
We will win on the battlefield.

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said young man, a great warrior you’ll be,
That’s right young man, we will sail ‘cross the seas,
Where you may be killed in battle.
But young man, If you happen to die,
It will be fine, to Valhalla you’ll rise
And you’ll stay there, by the God Odin’s side
Or you’ll stay in Freyja’s Folkvangr.

It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
We will burn and destroy, we will plunder and steal,
We can do anything we feel.
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
We spread mayhem and fear, we are ruthless and rough,
If you don’t like our style, that’s tough!

Dance break up to chorus

It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
We will burn and destroy, we will plunder and steal,
We can do anything we feel.
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
It’s fun to sail in a Viking Longboat Raid,
We spread mayhem and fear, we are ruthless and rough,
If you don’t like our style, that’s tough!
