Take Me Along!


I left the Philippines many moons ago
And since then I’ve been venturing out
New frontiers, new challenges
Switzerland – where I saw the first snow
Where I was able to get a job at the United Nations
Where my heart was broken for the first time
Germany – where I met Him Indoors in the lab
Action, reaction, chemistry in motion
First time to camp in a one-man tent
America – ah Hollywood and Rodeo Drive
Met some celebrities, can you believe that?
Went to work on my bike, loved it
Him Indoors came for a visit
We went to see the Grand Canyon, brilliant!
Asked me to marry him and I said yes
Great Britain – got married there
Worked at Boots the Chemist
In their Research, doing Statistics
And back to Germany – had HRH the son
Our pride and joy and we’re still here
26 years later and settling down well
