    MOVING ON SONG
    Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger

    Born in the middle of an afternoon
    In a horse-drawn wagon on the old A5
    The big twelve wheeler shook my bed
    You can't stop here the policeman said
    You better get born someplace else

    So move along, get along, move along, get along,
    Go, move, shift!

    Born in the tatie lifting time
    In an old bow tent in a tatie field
    The farmer said, The work's all done
    It's time that you were moving on
    Born in a wagon on a 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

    So move along, get along, move along, get along,
    Go, move, shift!

    Born at the back of a blackthorn hedge
    When the white hoarfrost lay all around
    No wise men came bearing gifts
    Instead the order came to shift
    The winter sky was hung with stars
    And one shone brighter than the rest
    The wise men came so stern and strict
    And brought the order to evict

    So move along, get along, move along, get along,
    Go, move, shift!

    Wagon, tent, or trailer born
    Last week, last year, or in far off days
    Born here or a thousand miles away
    There's always men nearby who'll say

    So move along, get along, move along, get along,
    Go, move, shift!

    Uh-oh, I knew it was too good to last. Bad news for the artist, too. Crowd scenes!
