Heading
It's Not Going To Happen Again

This is a Rupert Brooke poem set to music. The vision was Noel Coward, but sounds more like a school production of Gilbert and Sullivan.

I have known the most dear that is granted us here
More supreme than the gods know above
Like a star I was hurled throught the sweet of this world
And the height and the light of it love

I have risen to the uttermost heaven of joy
Sunk to the sheer hell of pain
But it's not going to happen again old boy
It's not going to happen again

It's the very first word our poor Juliet heard
From her Romeo over the Styx
And the Roman will tell Cleopatra in hell
As she starts the immortal old tricks

What Paris was telling for goodbye to Helen
As he bundled her into the train
It's not going to happen again old girl
It's not going to happen again

Rupert Brooke
