Heaven’s Just A Short Journey From Platform 4a

Heaven’s Just A Short Journey From Platform 4a

We had cause for celebration
And so for the occasion
We went out for the day
We got the train out to Edale
And then walked up Mam Tor
Where we cracked the champagne

England is so beautiful despite it all
England is still very beautiful
Derbyshire is beautiful despite it all
Yorkshire though is prettier by far.

We then fell down Winnats Pass
And into Devil’s Arse Town
Where we had chips and pints
We then walked back to Hope station
Caught t’ train back to Flat Town
Completing my passage o’ rights

England is so beautiful despite it all
England is still very beautiful
Derbyshire is beautiful I love it all
Yorkshire though is prettier by far.
Waltzing through the luscious and green countryside
England is still very much home

I had a great day with all my mates
On my birthday in Derbyshire

England is so beautiful despite it all
England is still very much a home
Even though I don’t see myself as being English
When it comes to passport control
England is still pleasant and so green yet
Yorkshire is still prettier by far.

Escape from the city every now and then
Re-discover life beyond the urban fringe
Forget the petrol cap and don’t be a dipstick
Or a slave to the tarmac and a big horn beeper prick –
Heaven’s just a short journey from platform 4a.
