Dedicated to Ian

lyrics

When we were young, footloose and fancy free
We had no money and no responsibility
Bombing about in your curry-coloured car
Long-haired and longing for the bar

A Balloon in the sky
Flying higher than high
This balloon floats away
Out of sight

I am the spirit without a bed
As I once quite drunkenly said
oh the nights in the Nottingham days
We laughed so hard in the smoky haze

A Balloon in the sky
Flying higher than high
This balloon floats away
Out of sight

It seems to me like it was yesterday
Growing up seemed so far away
But life is cruel and now you're gone
I guess we'll just have to carry on

A Balloon in the sky
Flying higher than high
This balloon flies out of sight
Goodbye
