about

Written by Paul Phillips and first sung in the sixties at my folk club in Birmingham. I added the bridge and half a verse. Redolent of summer hols at Blackpool and Aberdovey, although I preferred darkest Shropshire.

lyrics

Punch and Judy man
Puppets in your hand
See the children sit
Round you on the sand
And they don't mind if the sun won't shine
You've put the moon in their eyes

Punch and Judy man
Make the voices ring
Make the children dance
Make the children sing
And they don't mind if the sun won't shine
You've put the moon in their eyes

Punch and Judy man
May until September
You know they'll remember you're their friend
Punch and Judy man
Can you hear their laughter
Echoing long after summer's end

As I pass along
I listen to the noise
My shadow it has left me
It's with the girls and boys
And I don't mind if the sun won't shine
You've put the moon in my eyes
