Field of Play: Spirit of Song
 
 
 

An exciting songwriting project to create a new anthem celebrating the past, present and future of Mitchams Park. The project was led by musicians Kathryn and Jason Rowland of Sing! Choirs and the anthem was created in collaboration with volunteers from the community.

New residents of Mitcham Park and the surrounding community, including Chesterton Community College and Cambridge Manor Care Home, wrote, recorded and performed the new anthem celebrating the area's past, present and future.  Hear the track here

The Man with The Whistle

 

Verse 1

I can see it standing there a silhouette to make me proud

Ten thousand foot-prints you can't see

That the crowd have left be-hind

We would sit and drink our tea watch the Lilywhites play free

And the memories they flow

More than Eighty years ago

 

Chorus

And the man with the whistle Keeping peace and calm

And the man with the whistle Knows when time is done

And the man with the whistle

Blows it to bring all the people together

And the man with the whistle

Hands it on Hands it on to you

 

Verse 2

I remember chasing birds as I cycled into town

And the swimming pool outside

Is still frozen in my mind

There are many things I see

What the future holds for me

A bit of country it looks fine

In this City that is mine

 

Chorus

 

We belong standing together side by side

Yes we belong standing together side by side

Building our community

 

Chorus

We've got the whistle

We're Keeping peace and calm

And we've got the whistle

We know when time is done

And We've got the whistle

We'll blow it to bring all the people together

And we've got the whistle from now on then hand it on hand it on
