My Song

My song’s not an air, not a chant or a ditty

Not an: aria, canticle, ballad or hymn.

It’s simply these lines that keep running in my head,

Make me hum, tap my fingers, before long have to sing.

 

It’s nothing too grand, it might not make you cry.

Not a poem, not a hymn, not a psalm or lullaby

It doesn’t have great lyrics; it barely has a tune

But it’s a song to sing along to so just give it a try.

 

Songs can raise the spirits, songs can bring you down.

Here’s no rousing anthem, not much melody.

But once you start to sing it; it’ll carry you along

And your friends will all join in before too long.

And your friends will all join in before too long.
