CHANGE OF STATUS
by John Hovorka

Noses pushed against the glass
Half a million strong
A tired waiting throng
Wondering what went wrong
Wondering what went wrong
They have waited for it too
And they don’t know what to do
Amongst the chosen few
Next time allowed to go…
Next time allowed to go…

The creaking of the boat,
the splashing of the water,
the cries of the passengers
stuck in their cramped quarters

Far too many rhymes
For too many times
There was a time
There was a time
For St. John’s Infirmary Blues,
And for Stormy Weather,
And take me to the river,
and for I’m Going Down
and for I Don’t Know Why

But the creaking of the boat,
the splashing of the water,
the cries of the passengers
stuck in their cramped quarters

But noses pushed against the glass
Half a million strong
A tired waiting throng
Wondering what went wrong
Wondering what went wrong
They waited for it too
Amongst the chosen few
Next time allowed to go

But the creaking of the boat,
the splashing of the water,
the cries of the passengers
stuck in their cramped quarters
