A Stony Stratford Song
Good people all, from far and near;
Make your abode and join us here;
Where'er you may have planned to roam
Let Stony Stratford be your home
Here's where the Romans built a road
Along which legionaries strode;
Here's where their uncle first gained power
Over the "Princes in the Tower".
Of churches we can offer five
Which keeps the word of God alive;
Each one of them a different sect,
So come, and choose which you select.
Our inns and restaurants are known
For good rest, good food and good tone;
Of stories tall our Cock and Bull
Were once considered to be full.
But if you feel you can't decide
With us forever to reside
At least, please, make a little stay:
You will enjoy your holiday.
