When the Romans visited Cornwall

When the Romans came to Cornwall,

in the middle of the night,

they gave us guidance

to see the light;

to make the grade

and give no fight;

to worship Rome,

instead of Paig,

and construct straight roads—

in Cornwall? Vague!

When the Romans came to Cornwall,

in the first century AD,

they taught us to speak Latin

and how to be so cool;

but we were ‘proper’ Cornish,

and would be nobody’s fool.

When the Romans came to Cornwall,

they didn’t understand,

that we were Cornish full-time,

each and every man.

When the Romans came to Cornwall,

they didn’t stay that long,

they sailed away,

one fine day,

singing a mighty Cornish song.
