A LAND I ONCE CALLED HOME

There´s a land across the ocean, the land of my birth
The first which God created, when he put Man on earth.
Where kings and queens and princes, have ruled five thousand years
In a land of love and laughter, and joys and toil and tears
It´s a land of mighty rivers, and forests gold and green
And tow´ring majestic mountains, the greatest man has seen.
From the green hills of Darjeeling, you see Mount Everest´s crest
And the snow clad peaks that surround her, where the clouds come home to rest
There´s the Taj Mahal so lovely, and red fort nearby
Where a King once pined for his lost love, and prayed that he could die
It´s a land the world calls India, across the ocean foam
A land I love so dearly, the land I once called Home
A land I once called Home.
