Bonnie Johnny - Poem by Clarence A. Graham, Jr.

There was a Scotsman named Bonnie Johnny
Who played fife in a fife and drum corps to make money

He was the best fife player in all the land
The name of the band was bonnie Scotland Band

The Queen of England asked for a Command Performance of the band
Because she had heard that they were the best in the land

After she heard them play
She knighted each one that very day
