"Dee's lyrics for Petula's music fit like a glove. They are so artistically attuned to each other that you feel a mutual lyricism and dramatic sense coming through each song." 

- Paul Bateman

The Writer
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

A child of dreams
A child of summer
Becomes the man
Becomes the goal

The man you are
The child you will be
Together share
A writer's soul

So don't fight it
Write it
Your destiny is planned
Only the pen
Is left in your hand

When you're a man
Who's come from nothing
There is a truth
You must fulfil

The end that's born 
In each beginning
Is earned with pain
Achieved by will

So don't fight it
Write it
Your destiny is planned
Only the pen
Is left in your hand

The child of sun
The man of shadows
Can never live
Without a goal

The man you are 
The child you will be
Together share
A writer's soul

You're born to write all your life
You're born to write your life....

The Writer (Finale)
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

ZOLA
When there’s no choice
But to be counted
In spite of fear
One has to dare

To take a stand
Against injustice
For what is right
And true, and fair

I endeavoured
Never
To let a lie remain
I…… had to try
To heal every pain…

COMPANY
The end that’s born
In each beginning
Can never live
Without a goal

The man you are 
The child you will be
Together share
A writer's soul

You're born to write all your life
You're born to write……… your…….. life...............!.
