The Bongs of Big Ben

They rang out so loudly

For the stroke of 12 Noon

But we won’t hear them again

Anytime Soon

 

Four Years they’ll be silent

Until they ring out again

The sound of our History

The Bongs of Big Ben

 

No longer the sound

Of striking the hour

With workmen so busy

In Queen Elizabeth Tower

 

160 years rolled by

So much has happened since then

But whatever the year

We always will hear

The Proud Sonorous Bongs of Big Ben.
