  • Lyrics: Two little girls from the county of Kent, freed from the shadows of war Out of the darkness, into the sunshine, free to be children once more They'd grow up together, lives together bound Hands across the gardens, streets and towns Well, kiss and tell, pigtails and inkwells, daisy stems in jam jars Turned to dates upon roller skates, and friday nights at The Star Mary met an American, stole her heart away Jean she fell for a northern boy, down from Lincolnshire way Old country, new love, lives entwined Godparents, bridesmaids and best man smiles "Everyone hold on tight" they said Soldiers to brand new brides "Everyone hold on tight" they said "We're in for the ride of our lives" Before too long, us kids came along, and we too would all become friends We played in the haze of long summer days, and we thought that they never would end Off to the Isle of Sheppey in a Singer Gazelle A cold dip and a warm pop, on the pebbles and shells Funfair reunions, arcade smiles Hands across the water, oceans wide "Everyone hold on tight" we said Atop of the carpet slide "Everyone hold on tight" we said "We're in for the ride of our lives" Well, we grew up fast and memories past, sit safe on the picture book page See how they've grown, these kids of our own, now it's their turn up on the stage A sadness full of beauty takes my breath away I wish they knew each other, like we did back in the day Sisters and brothers, hopes and fears Fathers and mothers dry the tears "Everyone hold on tight" we say, as they prepare to fly "Everyone hold on tight" we say "You're in for the ride of your lives"
