by Frederick William Harvey (1888 - 1957)

Walking Song
Language: English 
O, Cranham ways are steep and green 
And Cranham ways are high, 
And if I was that black rook 
It's there that I would fly.

But since I'm here in London town 
A silly walking man; 
I'll make this song and caw it 
As loudly as I can.
