Heart of the city

It's all very well to make the news and carry umbrellas and keep dry shoes
And say what everyone's saying here - and wear what everyone else must wear

But today I'm tired of the whole affair - I want free life and I want fresh air
I want to go to Garden Place - curl my hair and paint my face

Grab a coffee and a chair - find half of Council sitting there
Surf the net in the wi-fi space - read a yarn in the story place

Take the kids and grandma,too, take the monkeys from the zoo
Watch pink scooters hurtle by, gaze at the web cam in the sky
See the river passing through, listen to poetry as you do
Paint a picture! care to dance? in Garden Place, you'll have your chance!
