In a ring-a-ring o' roses go the kids
and today's march's favourite girl
we're the secrets of life
in a flower unfolding
in a flower unfolding
Seeds of hope
from the land in a twirl.

When I grow up I want to be a poet
to write poems of freedom
I shall write on every heart
a song of happiness
a song of happiness.

Go on kids, go on
come on kids, come on
come, 'cos if you don't love kids, my love,
you can't love anyone else
anyone else.

In a ring-a-ring o' roses
go the kids
and today's march's favourite girl
we're the secrets of life
in a flower unfolding
in a flower unfolding
Seeds of hope from the land in a twirl.

Let's sing to the sound of the guitar
play in a ring in the moonlight
and learn to read between the lines
the secret of how to love.

Go on kids, go on
come on kids, come on
come, 'cos if you don't love kids, my love,
you can't love anyone at all,
anyone at all.

This song is from the CD Growing a ring o'roses
