Hear Ye!


Hear Ye!

Let all of England’s church bells ring!

Let chorus voices loudly sing!

The Windsors begat a future King,

New Royalty! National Glee!

The news brings joy across the land,

As regal Prince and Princess Planed.

Another George! How simply grand!

Wonderful thing,

Such news to bring!

Hear Ye!
