A LULLABY FOR PETERBOROUGH

Footsteps round the Serpentine
Watching birds playing in the lake-shine
Footsteps round the Serpentine
Watching birds playing in the lake-shine
I Pass The Tump in Hampton
I know I’m going home to lay my head down
Passing Black cat Roundabout
I know I’m going home to Peterborough Town
Grace hears the tweet tweet tweet
And she’s falling asleep to the sound
Hannah hears the crunch crunch crunch
And she dreams of the feelings she’s found

Passing Peterborough Cathedral
I Know I’m going home to lay my head down
Passing Eye Village Sign
I know I’m going home to Peterborough town
Noah hears the swish swish swish
And he’s falling asleep to the sound
Noah hears the swish swish swish
And he dreams of the feelings he’s found
