They’re meeting up in Birmingham

like Glasgow and Manchester before

to take part in the friendly games

and go for medals galore

From Canada and Australia they’ll gather

and from Caribbean Islands they’ll meet

to take part in a number of sporting events

some that are down your street

And right now they’re a gathering

to watch the baton arrive

while others prepare for the morning

in hopes of a medal they strive

Seventeen Sports are competing

with Hockey and Rugby but two

and the para-athletes are also taking part

it’s something that’s fresh and new
