BCA Windermere Theme Break 2019


Listen to the song "If you are going to Windermere Manor" by Gary Wickett

IF YOU’RE GOING TO WINDERMERE MANOR

1. If you’re going to Windermere Manor
Be sure to have a chess set in your care.
If you’re going to Windermere Manor
You’re gonna meet some mean chess players there.

2. And if you play at Windermere Manor
Be sure to keep your eye on every square;
But if you tarry at Windermere Manor
Your flag may fall. All in love and chess is fair.

(First middle eight.)

From all across the nation
They arrive at the station
And some are crossing the ocean.
And with cruel elation
They beat their friends and relations
With pieces in motion.
With pieces in motion. 

3. If you’re going to Windermere Manor
You’re sure to have the best of times whilst there;
For all who come to Windermere Manor,
You will find they return again each year.

(Second middle eight.) 

If all that preparation
Just leads you to frustration
And your flag takes a tumble.
Sing with jubilation
And A little lubrication;
There’s no need to grumble.
There’s music and fun so

4. If you’re going to Windermere Manor
you’re sure to have the best of times whilst there … 

(Key change and half verse.)

If you come to Windermere Manor
At winter time we’ll be a chessing there.
