Rookie (That old my birth certs is expired / Glasgow)

The End Of An Era

The building was strong and stood so tall
The Derby Royal Infirmary built to help us all
Built around 1810 its era now is at its end
Majestically covering Derby’s skyline

For near on two hundred years I have grown
Getting to old for these old bones
I’m moving on to a better place
Big modern smart and clean
I will be one mean fixing machine

The changes Iv seen throughout my years
All for the best I have no fear
Doctors and nurses I bless them all
And that goes for the staff that ran it all

The old one will not be beet just yet
There life in this old dog you bet
Iv Nursed people though sickness to health
No matter of their wealth

My buildings are still standing tall
Proud to have been here to served you all
Please do not shed a tear
I will always be around to remind you I’m near

I will be a relic of the passed
But my memories will always lasts
I will use my building to raise some funds
To try and help those needy ones

So before I pass into the night
The future ahead is bright
I will sparkle like that jewel in the crown
Cos my new home is city bound
