Declan comes from England.
That’s very far from me.
They probably don’t have radio
And definitely no TV.
But I know all about England
From movies that I see.
Everybody lives in castles,
And everybody drinks tea.
They cut off your head
For stealing bread,
And it sits by a coldly sea.
And Declan is from England.
He’s English as can be.
I hope he is a nice kid
And brings a castle to me.
