Thousands or More Waltz Tune

What is it?  I can almost hear words to it in my head, but can't drag them out.  It's driving me potty!

Well, I was stupid enough to think that I had written it, Although I had a nagging worry that it was such an obvious little tune that it must have occurred to someone before me. Then Paul told me that the A section is pretty similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJt4y4fH938 (also known as Jock Stewart) - which ended all my delusions of grandeur.

Yes, that's the one - the words came to me when I was listening to Broadside in the car on Saturday.  Glad I wasn't imagining things, but apologies for recognising it Pete! (apparently that used to happen to Ringo Starr all the time!) The version I'm familiar with is by Ewan McLennan - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ6XxUjD46U.
