Cheese-Rolling in Gloucestershire
Double the size, it’s a round, “Double Gloucester’
Not double the milk or the cream!
Its’ all about size, and in Gloucester, size matters!
Defining each person, each cheese and each team!
We all go out running-it every May
To the top of a beer Cooper’s Hill
where the barrel of chests are all bared to contest
In the race for the glory and thrill!
I tough little race when you’re chasing a cheese
To beat it before it beats you
And many attempting to thrown themselves forth
Tripping-up, they fall down with their pride all askew!
it’s fast and it’s messy and breaks many bones
And it goes back before Roman conquest
The Cotswolds like cheese so they roll down and laugh
And its great British Sport to join-in, try your best!
