Is for big-hearted, bright, beautiful women such as we,
Who all get together to see and to hear,
Wonderful speakers who have as their missions,
To share and to help us make informed decisions.
Then morning tea with a biscuit or two,
As we catch up with friends, old ones and new.
Is for the magic that we always find here
The magic that comes when we feel free of our fear
Of being lonely and sick with no one to care.
The women in our group will always be there
Is for the wealth of things that we do,
From bus trips, lunches and dinners, too.
Raffles, tombolas, it’s great fun for all,
And we always end up having a ball.
There are two Christmas lunches, one in July,
And Easter and Mothers Day never go by
Without doing something on their special days.
We have so much fun in many different ways.
Our main fund-raising function I’m sure you’ll agree
Is for Cancer Research at our ‘Biggest Morning Tea.’
We also sell daffodils, that’s a three-day affair.
In pairs we do all the hours we can spare
We take small change donations for all different groups
Whatever is current can get on our books.
We make up Christmas hampers, oh what a buzz!
‘Cos we donate them to others less fortunate than us.
Our Christmas Luncheon, now that’s a real treat,
With prizes, presents, good food, even wine,
We all come together to have a good time
With Secret Santa bringing good cheer,
Aren’t we lucky he comes twice a year!
Then it’s time to say ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!’
As we look forward to starting again in the following year.
