Homesick For Bombay

She speaks in a beautiful accent one could listen to her all day
The dark haired brown one in her twenties a beauty from distant Bombay
So friendly and so unconceited of her beauty she does not seem aware
A good wife for some lucky fellow for people like her are so rare
She is feeling homesick for India in this Land she won't grow old and gray
Her family to her is important she will return to them in April or May
A nurse in the big City hospital yet here she's not wishing to stay
Me love your Country and your people that's what she so often does say
She will be going back home to India and that has to be India's gain
But with everyone she has befriended fond memories of her will remain
A credit to her community and family as well as a credit to her race
She never seems surly or moody and she has such a sweet smiling face
She will be missed by all who knew her tis sad that she is not to stay
But she is nostalgic and homesick for her family and friends in Bombay.
