Nothing Could be Finer.

Newcastle. New South Wales. Australia


To the tune 'Carolina"

We live in a a certain place
That puts a smile on every face
We know it.
We live in a certain town
Where nothing ever gets you down,
So show it.
Boulevards are rising
By the riverside.
People exercising
Echo the city's pride.
We live in a town with charms
That's very far from War's alarms.
Preserve it.
We live in a town with sights
That constantly bring us delights
Conserve it.
If I had Aladdin's Lamp for only a day
I'd change the world the Newcastle way.
Nothing gives such pleasure
As the city that we treasure!
Let's deserve it!

Written with so much of pride and warmth.

And was touched reading...

If I had Aladdin's Lamp for only a day
I'd change the world the Newcastle way.

What I wouldn't give to be there in the warmth right now! I love the line about "let's deserve it"- it speaks to so many things- environmentalism, volunteering, local government involvment...
