To thoes held in high esteem

They are a treat, and cannot be beat,

With a smile so sweet, in which to greet,

They are so sefined, when bandages they bind,

It makes generosity exist, both in heart and mind,

The above we do tease, but they take it with ease,

Their motto is "agree and take it with glee,

The nurses and Staff of "Bordighera".

__________________ .. __________________

They do sun without a doubt,

To have any bout it would be out and out, 

We long for the day, that we might Rebay,

For the work they have done, during the Roar of the gun.

We all maintain that their work is of fame

But "Cheer Oh" "Hurrah" when we leave "Riviera"

The nurses and Stagg of "Bordighera".
