In my travels publicising this site, I came across a very nice man called Brian Quinn.
Brian runs the advertising on Penny Post, a really great local site.
In our conversation we were discussing the Repair Cafe movement.
Turns out Brian has written a song called 'The Good Repairer' (c)Brian Quinn.
I reproduce the lyrics below as they really do resonnate with the ethos of Daddy-Fix-It. Thank you Brian !
I am the good repairer, the friend of the abandoned things Like the angel with one wing: I am the man Who can hold the fragments in his hand If you take the time to understand the whole of it All will be well. I am the good repairer, I set the small things right The ball that does not bounce or the door that bangs at night I am the man who has the tools today to mend The broken things you cast away On me you can depend. Some breaks take time to heal Some cracks are hard to seal Spin it on the potter's wheel and pray That the pain will go away... I am the good repairer, I'm the healer of the damaged sole The broken heel, I make it whole Re-boot and re-begin: I am here I make the nightmares disappear, Never fear I am the good repairer All will be well. Some ills are hard to tend Some wounds take time to mend I do not always comprehend why or how The wheels turn sweetly now...The Good Repairer, (C) Brian Quinn, https://soundcloud.com/brianquinn-1
