    The Brighton Pavilion
    By Sophie Rowan

    Brighton is known for it’s historical pavilion
    round it gather people of one million
    the people who gather are tall and small
    occasionally you hear a sea gull’s call
    the sea gulls of Brighton have been here for a long time
    when you’re at the seaside you see the sun shine
    the pavilion I know is royal and old
    to the public it has been sold
    the pavilion was opened in 1923
    it was designed by John Nash you see
    Prince George had one big belly
    some times it would wobble like jelly
    Prince George ounce owned our great pavilion
    now round it gather people of ten million
