A simple place but homely

That lies deep in a farmer's yard

The going has not been easy,

Its life's been very hard

White walls of stone and mortar

Are beginning to show their toil

The place needs things adoing

Once more to make it royal

Evening sun through windows shining

On pews two and three

The floor it needs repairing

As plain as you can see.

The power points get warm and flash

It's not good for you and me

Something just needs checking

Ah the old electricity

Now you have read my story

Here's what I mean to say

A pound or two from me to you

Would make St Andrew's Day.
