There is a happy place not far away,
Where they care for veterans every day,
Erskine Macewen Activities is paradise for vets like me.
The staff are just like family
Supervised by the charming Debbie.
Transport collects around 9am
You’ll arrive just after ten
Behind the desk is the engaging Adele
And other vets signing in as well
Coffee and tea is laid out in style
Time to chat with friends for a while
Evonne will come and say
Who is entertaining us today
Could be a musician and his singing partner
Or a guy who thinks he’s Frank Sinatra
Even banjo playing old duffers
Think they’re called the Partick Pluckers
And for those who think they’re able
There’s a game of pool at the table.
Outside in the pleasant scenery
You can practice archery
I thought I was Will Scarlet
I aimed the arrow at the target
Or even William Tell instead
And shoot an apple off Albert’s head
Evonne shouted put down your bow
There are certain rules for you to know
They’re designed to keep you safe
So you don’t accidentally shoot your mate.
