Would you join a slow marching band?
And take pleasure in your leaving
As the ferry sails and tears are dried
And cows come home at evening.

Could you get behind a slow marching band?
And join together in the passing
Of all we shared through yesterdays
In sorrows neverlasting.

Take a hand and take a bow.
You played for me; that's all for now, oh, and never
Mind the words just hum along and keep on going.
Walk on slowly --- don't look behind you.
Don't say goodbye, love. I won't remind you.

Dream of me as the nights draw cold
Still marking time through Winter.
You paid the piper and called the tune
And you marched the band away.

Take a hand and take a bow.
You played for me; that's all for now, oh, and never
Mind the words just hum along and keep on going.
Walk on slowly --- don't look behind you.
Don't say goodbye, love. I won't remind you.
