about

This song was lovingly prepared by tears for the year in response to a commission from Chloe Gow-Jarrett and Adam Millard.

It is a birthday celebration of one Thea Gow-Jarrett, a beautiful 20-something patiently awaiting the arrival of her love from Canada.

Thea is a dancer, a school teacher, a head turner and currently resides in London, England.

lyrics

Lyrics:

London bridge is falling down,
falling down, falling down.
London bridge is falling down,
my fair lady... O!

T.H.E.A.!

We came around the house
a quarter past three.
With tapes and drinks to
start a dance party.
We pound and pounded
on the door til four,

and then it hit us...

Somebody wrote you a letter!
A certain overseas man.
He's got a ticket and
he's playing it straight.
Somebody wrote you a plan!

T.H.E.A.!

Now it's your birthday
and we're on our way
to Cafe Oto then to Kabaret.
If we don't see you
tits up on the dancefloor,

we'll just figure...

Somebody wrote you a letter!
A certain overseas man.
He's got a ticket and
he's playing it straight.
Somebody wrote you a plan!

T.H.E.A.!

G.O.W.J.A.R.R.E.T.T.

Please drop your letter and
c'mon dance with me.
