Ten to one and all is fine
On a lovely Summer’s day
Banbury in bloom is what it is
As folks go on their way.
Drinking coffee on the pavements
A holiday to book
The watchman on the High Street
Why don’t you take a look.
The Town Hall in the distance
Clouds gathering above
It’s Banbury at its finest
It is the place I love.
The higgledy piggledy rooftops
The buildings oh so quaint
Some dating back for centuries
Boring’s what it ain’t.
So next time you are passing
Please stop and take a rest
It’s worth a look around here
It’s Banbury at its best.
