Manchester’s Snowdrop Ferry – In Dazzle Colours – Landing in Liverpool

Hey! over Here!  Yeah, Man – It’s ME!

Hiding away, in plain sight, in the sea.

A product of Her Majesty’s Royal Na-vee…

But one you can’t spot – I’m sure you’ll agree

Hidden, I’ll protect you

by day or by night

with my dazzling colours to avoid a fight

coloured like sea and sky so bright

enemy spotters cant see me quite right.

And it’s not just me hiding – look up in the air

catch a glimpse of my flying friends if you dare

on spotting missions against th’ enemy

and tanks hidden like fallen trees

So keep your eyes open –

and don’t let them veer

One Minute i’ll be there

and the next

Disappear!
