No brown sugar here.
Self-raising flour, also none.
Backward Switzerland.

"You will like it here,
warmer and dryer than there."
In yer dreams, that is.

One question: can I
live on two hundred thousand?
No, not possible.

Switzerland beat Spain
reality or a dream?
just no way to tell...

Rooney flails, can't run or pass

You would never know
It's the first day of Summer
Sixteen degrees C

Look through the window
Feels so cold and it's raining
Hurray, Summer's here
