Old Lesley

Only the memories with him does remain
Of his first Hometown that he may not see again
Of Northampton in England from here far away
His eighty years of living has left him looking old and gray
Old Lesley left England when he was nineteen
A lot of the World since then he has seen
Sixty one years out of England in time this does seem long ago
And time as we know eventually becomes everyone's foe
But the accent he was born into with him does stay
And with him will remain till his last night and day
Lesley has led a nomadic existence for most of his life
He has never had children or never has had a wife
Too old now for to travel it does look like he
May end his life in Victoria in the Town of Werribee.
