NTRWB Lyrics
Hey Mr. Auden have you heard the news?
Seems they found a cure for your Roman Wall Blues.
Says on the tablets that they sent back home
They got dates, wine and olives direct from Rome.

They got baths and medicines I've been told
To cure your lice and take care of your cold.
And if your eyes are sore from rain or mist
You can always sign up for the old sick list.

Downtown Corbridge on a Saturday night
Find a local lassie to treat you right.

So hey, Mr. Auden let me put you straight
Did a little diggin' to bring you up to date.
Well a backwater it may be
But you got to brush up on your history.


Lyric by Kevin Ridley with acknowledgement to Alan K. Bowman's "Life and Letters of the Roman Frontier" and Dr. Mike Ibeki at www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/romans/vindolanda_1.shtml
