ROAMING

England was the place of my birth
Birmingham my home
Kingstanding was where I lived
From where I used to roam.

I roamed across the sea one day
To a place called Pennsylvania
This was in the USA
And I was just a stranger

I went to work
And bought some land
And built myself a home
But somehow wasn't settled
And I knew I would have to roam

So I roamed across the USA
From the east coast to the west
And ended up in California
Which is where I came to rest

I've been here now for 51yrs
And never more will roam
Because I became a citizen
And now this is my home

My wife and I are happy here
Our son is with us to
And though we are americans
We are also Brummies to

THE END.
