Bright New Day lyrics
MRS. JOHNSTONE
Oh, bright new day,
We're movin' away

MICKEY
Why mum?

MRS. JOHNSTONE
We're startin' all over again

MICKEY
Linda ... Linda.

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Oh. Bright new day
We're going away

SAMMY
Where?

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Where nobody's heard of our name

SAMMY
Moving away -- from here?

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Where we can begin again,
Feel we can win and then
Live just like livin' should be.
Got a new situation,
A new destination
And no reputation following me.

MICKEY
Linda we're movin'...

LINDA
So are we!

MRS. JOHNSTONE
We're getting out
We're movin' house
We're starting all over again.

MICKEY AND SAMMY
Yabba dabba do!

MRS. JOHNSTONE
We're leavin' this mess
For our new address
"Sixty-five Skelmersdale Lane"

SAMMY
Is that in the country, mother?

DONNA MARIE
What's it like there?

MRS. JOHNSTONE
The air is so pure
You get drunk just by breathing,
And the washing stays clean on the line.
Where there's space for the kids
The garden's so big,
It would take you a week
Just to reach the far side
Come on Sammy, Mickey, now you've all gotta help 'em
Would you excuse us, we've gotta pack
We're movin' away

NEIGHBOUR
Oh, that's too bad.

POSTMAN
Oh, isn't it sad

POLICEMAN
Praise the lord, he has delivered us at last

NEIGHBOUR
We mustn't scoff!

NEIGHBOUR
The Johnstones are off

ALL
Clap your hands
Grab your whistle
Give it a blast

POSTMAN
Goodbye to the riff raff
The trash and the trouble

NEIGHBOUR
Goodbye to the scum and the scruff

MILKMAN
Wherever you're going
We hope you go knowing

ALL
That as far as you're going
Won't be far enough!

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Just pack the bags,
We're leavin' the rags,
The wobbly wardrobe,
Chest of drawers that never close.
The two legged chair, the carpet so bare.
You wouldn't see it if it wasn't for the holes
Now that we're movin'

Now that we're improvin'
Let's just wash our hands of this lot
For it's no longer fitting, for me to be sitting
On a sofa, I know for a fact was knocked off

POLICEMAN
Knocked off.

MRS. JOHNSTONE
We might get a car,
Be all 'lahdie dah',
An' go drivin' out to the sands.

LINDA
We're coming too!

MRS. JOHNSTONE
At the weekend,
A gentleman friend,
Might take me dancing
To the local bands
We'll have a front room
And then if it should happen,
That His Holiness flies in from Rome,
He can sit there with me,
Eating toast, drinking tea
In the sort of surroundings
That remind him of home.

MICKEY
It's like the country isn't it, mum?

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Ey, we'll be alright out there son.
Away from the muck an' the dirt an' the bloody trouble
Eh, I could dance. Come here.

MICKEY
Get off...

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Oh, bright new day,
We're movin' away,
We're startin' all over again.
Oh, bright new day,
We're goin' away,
Where' nobody's heard of our name.

SAMMY
Come on gang.
Let's go and play in that field,

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Mickey, an' what are you laughin' at?

MICKEY
I'm not laughin'. I'm smilin'. I haven' seen you happy like this for ages.

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Well, I am happy now, eh? Jesus, where's the others?

MICKEY
They went into that field, mum.

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Sammy! Sammy! Get off that bleedin' cow before I kill you. That cow's a bull.

MRS. JOHNSTONE
Now we can begin again,
Feel we can win an' then,
Live just like livin' should be.
Got a new situation,
A new destination,
An' no reputation following me.

ALL
We're gettin' out we're movin' house
We're goin' away. Gettin' out today.
We're movin' movin' movin' movin' movin' house.
We're goin' away, oh, bright new day.
