Auckland New Zealand is a city with zest and style.
It’s people have elegance and grace
More English than the English . A refined sort of place.
Ahead of it’s time in many ways too
Auckland was never a human zoo
With the first female mayor of The Empire Brit
Auckland could show off a bit.
In fact New Zealand being
first to give women the vote
certainly has the right to gloat.
How strange to have retained such vintage appeal.
Australians could learn a thing or two
from NZ’ s positive gearing
Auckland is smaller but quite spread out.
The burbs are leafy green havens.
Topiary is what they’re all about
Weatherboard houses and well tended gardens.
Auckland hasn’t changed too much over time.
In the eyes of many she’s still in her prime
Still debutants dress in their very best
Go to varsity, marry. have families of their own
Buy themselves neat suburban homes.
Auckland is still closed late at night
Not much has really changed.
Somehow I think they’ve got it right
they don’t seem too deranged
A vibrant city with a little nonchalance
Contemplating life on the ledge
It will embrace you if you give it a chance
Give you that extra edge
So don’t be afraid to wear your smile
Hang out in Auckland for a while.
