We’ll Meet Again

Oyez, Oyez, Oyez Lords, Ladies, Gentlefolk please raise a cheer for a song that our nation still holds dear. 'We'll meet again' when the crisis is over, singing this song just as they did at Dover. Katherine Jenkins releases the single where with Dame Vera her fine voice does mingle. Easter sees the release of this perfect gem. Raise a glass to the ladies as we toast them. The NHS Charities will profit from the sales. Please support the venture of these great females. God save the Queen.
Oyez, Oyez, Oyez Lords, Ladies, Gentlefolk let us hear your praise. Berwick born Lucy Bronze has us in a daze. Again she has won a prestigious award. To ignore this talent we can not afford. In football this Northumbrian reigns supreme. To us earthbound mortals it seems but a dream. She set out at eight to beat her own brother, but now we're hard-pressed to find such another. God save the Queen
