Derreck Lee was a Cornishman

Derreck Lee was a Cornishman

who lived in Stozzle Town,

he pastied away eventually

but they couldn’t pin him down.


They buried him in Truro,

parts of him in Roche;

where now he is a monument

that no one dares approach.


Derreck was a hero,

a maverick and a fool;

he declared himself the unknown king

of Par, and Pelynt, and Pool.


Derreck Lee was a Cornishmen

and one he’ll always be;

but he was not a king or anything

to do with royalty.
