a visit to wonderful london.

london break.

Busy, Busy, London town,

so easy to get around.

underground or over ground,

costs just a few pounds.

everybody in such a rush,

on the tube or running for the bus.

crowded streets and busy places,

many people, some famous faces.

The palace flag flies up high,

changing of the guard to the sergeants cry.

heard the strike of Big Ben,

waved to the policeman outside number ten.

Saw the crown jewels on display,

Beefeaters keeping all at bay.

Saw the magical Albert hall,

Tower bridge ever so tall.

Regent street so mad busy,

Oxford street sends you dizzy.

Harrods and Hamleys ever so flash,

where the nobility spend their cash.

Covent garden and leicester square,

seems like half the world are there.

Fancy restaurants so we can eat,

entertainers on the street.

Trafalgar square and Nelson up high,

a wonderful view from the London eye.

Marble arch, Horse guards parade,

Lifeguards in armour stood in the shade.

A hundred photo's of our own,

nice to visit but there is no place like home.
