ENGLAND SOUTH AFRICA NEVER BE MINE

England at night
Is not like South Africa
In England you don't watch Thunder storms
As grey skies and rain are more the norm
And the Sun over here
Does rarely appear
Even in summer
Its a real bummer
But what England has
Is a piece of my heart
That with which
My birthright bough
I dare not part
And even though
South Africa at night
Is not like England
Its a playground for children
With awe to see
And wall to wall sunshine
It will never be mine
