Vincents

 

Edna St Vincent, Edna St Vincent

Edna St Vincent Millay;

Burning the candle with both ends alight

And still shining bright today.

O St Vincent, Island St Vincent

We’re going there today;

Pack up a picnic and chill the white wine

O what a beautiful bay!

Café St Vincent, Café St Vincent

Café au lait s’il vous plait;

Lovers and artists sharing delights

In St Germain des Pres.

Four Saint Vincents, four Saint Vincents

Gentle and wise they say;

Lerins, Zaragoza, Ferrer, de Paul

God bless the Saint Vincents today.

Mary Ann Vincent, Mary Ann Vincent

She moved to the States in May;

The best Mrs Malaprop that ever was seen

In Boston, USA.

O Gene Vincent, sweet Gene Vincent

From North Carolina, VA;

Still rocking in heaven and bringing it down

With Be Bop A Lula today.

Christopher Vincent, Christopher Vincent

What will the critics say?

There but for one word of love?

God bless George Barker today.

Edna St Vincent, Edna St Vincent

Edna St Vincent Millay;

Do not go down to the end of the town

Without rhyming couplets today.
