There's a little city flower,
Every spring unveiling,
Growing in the crevices,
By some London railing.
Though it has a Latin name
In town and countryside,
We in England call it
London Pride has been handed down to us,
London Pride is a flower that's free.
London Pride means our own dear town to us,
And our pride it forever will be.
If London Pride, Saxifraga x urbium, were rare and hard to grow, everyone would rave about its darling frothy little flowers thriving valiantly in gloomy and difficult conditions.
