Carry On



Whatever the words that you hear,
Somehow the meaning is clear,
We're all on the same ship together, moving on,

From the first time that life could be heard,
To the last sounds of men on this earth,
The question is always the same, where are we going, where are we going?

Ooh carry on, carry on,
There's a silver light beside you,
Take the hand that's there to guide you,
Through this night to where we came from,
Carry on, carry on,
When the autumn leaves are falling,
And you hear the voices calling you away,
Then do not fear, you'll carry on,
Carry on, carry on...

Love is the daughter of life, comfort to trouble and strife,
She's always beside you to help you carry on,

Oh they say that the stars in the sky,
Are the souls of the people who die,
Will we meet them again when we reach our destination?

Sratseht rofesruo cat?s,
Nwonknu no it anitsed,
Dlroweht gnillacsi esr?vinu eht,
Ecalp gnitser lanif dnatsal r?hs-drawot,

Ooh carry on, carry on,
There's a silver light beside you,
Take the hand that's there to guide you,
Through this night to where we came from,
Carry on, carry on,
When the autumn leaves are falling,
And you hear the voices calling you away,
Then do not fear, you'll carry on, carry on,
Carry on, carry on ... ooh carry on...
"I'm asked, as I have been several times, what the language is which is featured in one of the verses. Well, it's not a language at all! It's just English written backwards. Each line is written backwards from right to left and the words broken up. So, reading it from left to right it reads like a foreign language. What you do is write down all the letters, reading from right to left and writing them down left to right, and then make the words up. I'm afraid our correspondents will have to work that little puzzle out for themselves; it will ruin the fun if I say..."
