The heat continues – burning rays
Brighten Belgium's July days
Though hordes of people are away
The traffic jams are here to stay.
Time to switch off, take things slow
Catch up with favourite friends we know
Chew the fat, exchange frank views;
Still Greece's bail-out makes the news.
We've got it made, we're not at war
Who says Brussels is a bore?
Free concerts, outdoor films and beer
Why not have holidays right here?
Down town go walkabout and see
How pleasant car-less roads can be!
Long evenings under star-filled skies
Brussels is golden, when it tries!
