lyrics

Hey Sammy
(Bella Hardy) 

 
Hey Sammy 
I saw you kicking the ball round with your friends outside 
A ford fiesta bore the brunt of a tussle by the kerbside 
 
Your friend ran into the road 
And he was lucky that day, nothing was coming 
But Sammy, tell him that he must be more careful 
Life’s gone in a second 
 
And I wonder if you know 
That they’re saying you should go? 
They’re saying you should go 
 
Hey Sammy 
I saw your mother with the others looking at you down the street 
She has the kindest smile you’d even hope to meet 
On your way out the door in the morning 
 
And I wish she never knew 
What the papers say about you 
 
Do you wish you never knew? 
Do you wish you never knew? 
What our ignorance has done? 
What our carelessness can do? 
Well I hope you never know 
That they were saying you should go 
 
Five boys playing at fighting 
Five boys caught up in a here and now moment 
With not a thought spared for what’s coming up ahead 
 
I saw you set up a game on the pavement 
And call across the street to see who would play 
And from my window I saw the border’s kicked away 
On a grey afternoon in Glasgow   
 
Do you wish you never knew? 
Do you wish you never knew? 
What our ignorance has done? 
What our carelessness can do? 
Well I wish she’d never known
Oh I wish she’d never known
What the papers say about you 
How heavy words are lightly thrown
And I hope you never know 
That they were saying you should go
