Rookie (Chesterfield, UK)

The Metropolitan Line


Starting out from Amersham
And going through to Aldgate,
The Met goes along that route
And back again from Aldgate

Passing Chalfont and Latimer
And Chorleywood as well;
Rickmansworth and Moor Park
Then Harrow-on-the-Hill.

I've missed a few stations
Where the fast train doesn't stop:
Northwood, Northwood Hills and Pinner;
North Harrow's another stop

After Harrow-on-the-Hill,
There's Northwick Park station,
Then Preston Road and Wembley Park,
Then Finchley Road station.

After Finchley Road,
There's Baker Street as well;
Great Portland Street and Euston Square
Are on the map as well.

King's Cross St. Pancras;
Farringdon and Barbican;
Moorgate and Liverpool Street;
Then the final station

Aldgate's at the end,
The terminus of this line.
The Metropolitan Line to be precise.
Oh, what a pretty line.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
