Posted:Ok so I was messing around with my guitar last night and I wrote a song to go with some chords I put together a few years ago.

I may do a video singing it but I'm way too shy, so here are the lyrics...



Viva la HoP (or Ode to Malcolm)

Written By Tammie Rees - copyright 2005 (lol)





The HoPper code

Is a learner code,

Thats what they all say,

Inspired spinning

Gets us all grinning,

Oh, how we love to play.



Bridge

With spinny toys

For girls and Boys

And lots of fire too,

Fuel and steel

Have great appeal

Because spinning is what we do.



Chorus

Malcolm, youre the man

You do all that you can

To make Home of Poi a wonderful place,

Youve encouraged folk

To spin and toke

In a field with plenty of space





We take pride

When floor and poi collide,

Its all a learners curve,

Which will never stop

Though poi and staff may drop

'Cause spinning fire takes some nerve



Bridge

With spinny toys

For girls and Boys

And lots of fire too,

Fuel and steel

Have great appeal

Because spinning is what we do.



Chorus

Malcolm, youre the man

You do all that you can

To make Home of Poi a wonderful place,

Youve encouraged folk

To spin and toke

In a field with plenty of space





With weaves and fountains

As tall as mountains

And plenty of tangles galore,

Hyperloops and atomics

Are just supersonic

I cant help it wanting more.



Bridge

With spinny toys

For girls and Boys

And lots of fire too,

Fuel and steel

Have great appeal

Because spinning is what we do.



Chorus

Malcolm, youre the man

You do all that you can

To make Home of Poi a wonderful place,

Youve encouraged folk

To spin and toke

In a field with plenty of space





The most friendly place

In cyberspace

Bringing people from all over, together,

We may frown

When the server is down

'Cause we want this site to live forever!



Bridge

With spinny toys

For girls and Boys

And lots of fire too,

Fuel and steel

Have great appeal

Because spinning is what we do.



Chorus

Malcolm, youre the man

You do all that you can

To make Home of Poi a wonderful place,

Youve encouraged folk

To spin and toke

In a field with plenty of space

In a field with plenty of space

In a field with plenty of space





Thank you
