Bilston Town Hall

The day they turned on the clock

The day they turned the clock on,
dawned all sunny and bright,
the day they turned the clock on,
the vicar's heart was light.

After all the years of fighting,
The people of Bilston were right.
After all the years of fighting,
We gathered to see the sight.

With jaunty step, the Vicar,
Gathered the people all round.
With jaunty step, the Vicar,
Approached the mighty crowd.

‘We’ve come a long way together’
He proclaimed to one and all.
‘We’ve come a long way together
To save this old Town Hall’.

The crowd all watched in amazement,
As the moment swiftly drew near.
The crowd all watched in amazement,
Then we let out a mighty cheer.

So, now the clock is working,
You can see it across the town.
So, now the clock is working,
The Town Hall’s regained its crown.
