Goodbye Captain Tom

 Heaven has gained an angel tonight
 We lost our Captain Tom
 He showed the world how to help each other
 When life was going wrong.
 A simple gesture
 He walked a mile
 Up and down,and with a smile.
 But he exceeded much more than that
 Astonishingly as it sounds
 The final total I believe
 Over 39 million pounds.
 Sir Tom that was amazing
 As worried families prayed
 Extra help came their way
 With the money that you'd raised.
 I know you didn't know me
 But I believe I understood
 Do our best in all of life
 I promise now I would.
 You walked around your garden
 For many miles a day
 But all those miles created cash
 For the NHS today.
 So yes Heaven gained an angel
 Sadly you lost your fight
 But the NHS is in a better place
 Because of you tonight.
