King Alfred

King Alfred he could sing a song

As sweet as any mans.

King Alfred he could fight a throng

And think out battle plans.

King Alfred from his heart so true

The English laws could make.

But one thing Alfred couldn’t do,

He couldn’t bake a cake.

I’d rather be like Alfred

Than any other King.

I’d rather more than any man

Hear Alfred play and sing.

I’d rather keep for England’s sake

The laws he made for me.

But I’d rather eat my mother’s cake

Than Alfred’s for my tea.
