Beacon Vaults Exmouth

At the jam sesh at the Vaults on wensday night
Were Pete and Pete and Ells and Tim and Chris

Pete piped and fluted hippy Pete guitarred
And Tim and Chris and Martin guitarred too

And Ells cos Roy had not showed up
With tambourine to lend

Played barstool. Next mornin
After part-time job of course

She bought tambrine cos barstools
Got no bells and membred
Dedries songs and made new words
(For music was the thing that kept her right)

And now I’ll rhyme it – every woman and man
That was playing in the vaults was raising Pan
