lyrics

I saw wild grasses blowing in breezes serene,
Bluebells glowing in forests of darkest green,
Beach trees flailing and cedars carve the sky,
Willows trailing in rivers deep and wide.

‘Though I wander far, from where I long to be,
Forget me not, England, oh please, forget not me.

I saw black crows nesting, screeching aloud.
I saw the fists of April shake at the clouds.
I saw dark skies gather like a rumor soon told, I saw a
Rainbow melt in a meadow of gold.

‘Though I wander far, from where I long to be,
Forget me not, England, oh please, forget not me.

In the stinging nettles, I saw thorns of rose and wire.
Pink cherry petals are trodden in mire. I saw
Fields frown and furrow the brow of the earth. I saw
Wild flowers bowing like they knew their worth.

‘Though I wander far, from where I long to be,
Forget me not, England, oh please, forget not me.
Forget me not, England, oh please, please, forget not me.
