Brentford

O’er all the land of Brentford

The Royal Oak, New Road, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8

I’m lord, and eke of Kew:

JCDecaux, Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8

I’ve three-per-cents and five-per-cents;

The Butts, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8

My debts are but a few;

Brentford Boatyard, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8

And to inherit after me

HG Hampton's Brentford High Street, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8

I have but children two.

Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8

From William Makepeace Thackeray’s The King of Brentford’s Testament
