Do you remember an InnA
MirandaB
Do you remember an InnA
And the tedding and the beddingC
Of the straw for a beddingC
And the fleas that tease in the High PyreneesD
And the wine that tasted of tarE
And the cheers and the jeers of the young muleteersD
Under the vine of the dark verandaB
Do you remember an Inn MirandaB
Do you remember an InnA
And the cheers and the jeers of the young muleteersD
Who hadn't got a pennyF
And who weren't paying anyF
And the hammer at the doors and the dinA
And the hip hop hapG
Of the clapG
Of the hands to the swirl and the twirlH
Of the girl gone chancingC
GlancingC
DancingC
Backing and advancingC
Snapping of the clapper to the spinA
Out and inA
And the ting tong tang of the guitarE
Do you remember an InnA
MirandaB
Do you remember an InnA
-
Never moreI
MirandaB
Never moreI
Only the high peaks hoarI
And Aragon a torrent at the doorI
No soundJ
In the walls of the halls where fallsD
The treadK
Of the feet of the dead to the groundJ
No soundJ
But the boomL
Of the far waterfall like doomL
