PETE MCCARTHY

'You were as dry as dust and as warm as toast
You found your home on the Brighton coast

You were as soft as silk and as loud as war
Now you're a harbour bell from a distant shore

One of these days when this Cliffhanger ends
You'll be waiting at the bar for your family and friends

Good night, dear brother, good night
'

 

Andy sang these words to the tune 'We bid you goodnight - in memoriam' from the Plainsong album A to B, at Pete's funeral.
