Lots of houses and cottages on our street
An old lady living with cat, she’s so sweet
A cottage surrounded with red and green leaves
I pass by her cottage every day and we both greet

We protect our houses for the thieves
People gossip, that’s one of our peeves
We kids play on the street till teatime
We know our affairs, our lives interweave

We played all day, we’re covered in grime
All the apple trees we just have to climb
Roller skates, cycling, running, all fun
We’re all growing up for the meantime

The cottage with the leaves is being done
Old lady passed away and now there’s the son
He’s moving with his family with their tons
There’s even a swimming pool oh what fun

  1. Sounds like a wonderful street to live on and that the old lady was nice. But as sad as her death, it is happy a new family with kids and a pool are moving in! A great place to be a kid and grow up! Cheers.
