The Lyrics

During the covid crisis, Captain Tom Moore, after knee surgery, walked 100 times round his large garden in the lead up to his 100th birthday to raise money for the NHS. His initial target was £1,000; he raised over £32,000, 000. He was subsequently knighted by the Queen.

Happy Birthday Captain Tom
Happy Birthday Captain Tom
Time to celebrate you've now achieved your ton.
Happy Birthday Captain Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, lights are on (five, four, three)
Start the celebrations and we're all with you (two, one)

Message from the world to Captain Tom
Amazing what you've done
We're in awe of just how much you've gone and raised
And from all of us we thank you and give praise.

This is from us all to Captain Tom
To celebrate your day
We've arranged a few surprises from us all
And a host of stars and friends will come to call.

For you
There is going to be a fly-past
High up in the sky
Everyone will cheer
And enjoy it with you here.

Now you've reached one hundred years of age
It's time you had a rest
And I see that you've had birthday cards galore
In the thousands they have come and there'll be more.

From us all to Captain Tom
With one accord we'll sing this song
Happy Birthday Captain Tom
Happy Birthday Captain Tom
Happy Birthday Captain Tom

So now
Here we are toasting your achievements
Far across the globe
Cheering all the way
And there's nothing more to say.
