I don't think any further introduction is necessary, as hopefully, I think you'll get the message...
Born in Northampton, England,
cobbled together in a cobbling town,
three of three, Mum had me at home,
for the record, in a two up two down.
And so began lifeís journey,
as always, the magic quickly started to unfold,
I began to write my life story,
thankfully, some of the chapters will remain untold.
But along lifeís pebbled path,
thereís been a few boulders blocking the road,
but in the end, I think itís all pretty fair,
we all get back just what weíve sowed.
And now I share my time between countries,
neither an Englishman or an Australian at heart,
and thatís quite hard to explain,
so where on earth do I start?
Maybe Iíll start with Beckhamís missed penalty,
because yes, that was my head I was holding in my hands,
and who ran around the pub when Wilkinson dropped that goal?
Yes, these are things only a true Englishman understands.
But then I think what John Lennon said,
and how he imagined how the world could be,
he imagined no countries, no religion, no borders,
just imagine how different it would be for him, you and me.
Because thereís about three billion people,
(yes, thatís 3 followed by 9 noughts),
and they have to live on a dollar a day,
and that thought leaves me feeling out of sorts.
So Iíll keep my English and Australian passports,
(otherwise, Iíd have to keep my feet firmly on the ground,)
but Iím going to become a Worldishman,
because I think thereís a new future to be found.
A future without those man made borders,
where people are not judged by the colour of their skin,
where whatís inside is the stuff that really counts,
and honestly, thatís always been the important thing.
Because I know Iím not alone on this planet,
a growing number are tired of sending their sons to war,
so letís get our leaders to fill their hot air balloons,
if they take a world view, then weíll truly soar.
Because it canít be right that I have to diet,
yet, countless others struggle to find a bowl of rice a day,
so come on all you merry Worldishmen,
letís unite, and show the World the way.
