The Egg Man wrote:Ian Davison's song

We'd sung about him for years,
And there were speeches everywhere.
But I'll never forget the cheers,
When Mandela danced in the square.

When Nelson came to Glagow, after all his pain,
Ten thousand people met him, and listened in the rain.
The big umbrellas folded, and many heads were bare.
But every face was shining, when Mandela danced in the square.

We'd sung about him for years,
And there were speeches everywhere.
But I'll never forget the cheers,
When Mandela danced in the square.


When Nelson talked of duty, you could feel us hold our breath,
We were just a bit uneasy, when Nelson talked of death,
And when he talked of trouble, there was tension in the air,
But we faced the future smiling, when Mandela danced in the square.
We'd sung about him for years,
And there were speeches everywhere.
But I'll never forget the cheers,
When Mandela danced in the square.


When Nelson came to meet us, we made our feelings clear.
We heard the songs and speeches, and we clapped and stamped and cheered.
We heard of peace, and justice, and the freedom that we share,
But we shook the City Chambers, when Mandela danced in the square.

We'd sung about him for years,
And there were speeches everywhere.
But I'll never forget the cheers,
When Mandela danced in the square.

Well, Nelson came to Glasgow, to show us he was free,
The greatest man in Africa, and gave us his decrees,
A giant with a suit and tie, and sober face and hair,
But the welcome seemed to move him and Mandela danced in the square.

We'd sung about him for years,
And there were speeches everywhere.
But I'll never forget the cheers,
When Mandela danced in the square.

A song that I will always remember.
