Colonel Tom

Happy 100th Birthday Colonel Tom


What a legend Colonel Tom has become

The hearts of all our nation, he has won

To walk a hundred laps was his only goal

At 100 years old, it should have taken its toll

But Colonel Tom took it all in his stride

Filling isolated days with cheer and pride


The news of his challenge travelled far and wide

The media shared his story, proud family by his side

Three weeks ago, a thousand pound was the dream

Like a lifetime ago, that must seem

Thirty million pounds raised for our national health

In such a short time, amassing astonishing wealth


A guard of honour lined his one hundredth lap

A mark of respect for such a wonderful chap

A pride of Britain award, his name on a train

A letter from the queen and fly past planes

A world war two medal and a number one song

Michael Ball and all the country singing along


With hope in our hearts and heads held high

We will ride this storm, towards the golden sky

In years to come they will find it hard to believe

The story of a 100 year old man and what he achieved

Our national treasure, our hero and our number one

We salute you Sir,

give praise and thanks for all you have done


God bless you and all your family Colonel Tom
