The Guernsey Hills

 It’s a long, long way to these grand old hills
From the far off Guernsey Isle;
But our emerald hills and our fertile fields
Made our early settlers smile.
And these same old hills make us smile today
Since we know their real beauty and worth;
For each loyal Guernseyite firmly believes
They’re the very best hills on earth.
And though we may travel to countries far off,
To the uttermost ends of the earth,
Our hearts will turn back with a thrill of delight
To the old Guernsey Hills of our birth.
