I was born long ago in the mountains out east
My spirit remains there today.
From Irish, Scot, and English blue blood,
Throw in a dab of Native American and German-Jew.
Ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War from
The States of New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Noah wrote a well-known dictionary, I declare
Daniel was quite the orator and statesman;.
Old John was the first governor of Connecticut;
That’s the wrap-up of the forefathers..
Recent history brought in some Swiss ties;
My children are thoroughly peopled with strong genes.
An Irish blessing to you, and a good cuppa of English tea,
A Scottish shortbread and good German bratwurst,
Delicious Swiss chocolate and strong Algonquin courage . . .
But the important part. . . I am blessed with God’s everlasting salvation and grace.
I AM A CHILD OF THE KING!
