A PLACE OF PRIDE

Everybody needs a place,

A place to call one’s own,

A place in which we have great pride,

From which we’d never roam;

I’ve lived a lot of places, friend,

From Atlantic to Pacific,

Some of them were not so great,

While others were terrific.

I’ve put down roots throughout this land,

But found I couldn’t rest,

But the place of pride I now call home

Surely is the best –

Someone else had chosen most

Of those places, in the past,

But I chose this place and here I’ll stay,

It’s my place of pride at last.
