White Glove

Your Majesty Waving a white glove Watching red barge on the River Easing the Thames Skipper's dream for ever As You are up to the top In Pageant Canaletto scene Bridging London and Venice People's Joy and Hope for the future Ringing the 8 bells on the Belfrey Announcing worldly water Storms That will open the doors still ajar From St.Paul's Cathedral to Big Ben No mercy nor sympathy for the evil Greeting the iconic landmarks From the London-Paris Eye Like a Mermaid One among the Trinity Five Hundreds on behalf of all Outside the Towers of London Saluted and respected White Drops of rain to wash some away Along the banks of our rivers in steady progress
