JUST DON'T SAY YOU ARE ENGLISH!
Goodbye to my England-so long my oId friend
Your days are now numbered, being brought to an end,
To be Scottish, Irish or Welsh, that's just fine,
But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.
The French and the Germans may call themselves such,
As may the Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch,
You can say you're a Russian, or maybe a Dane,
But don't say you're English, ever again.
At Broadcasting House that word is taboo,
At Brussels they've scrapped it, in Parliament too.
Even schools are affected; staffs do as they're told,
They mustn't teach children about the England of old.
Writers like Shakespeare, Milton and Shaw,
The pupils don't learn about them any more.
How about Agincourt, Hastings, Arnhem and Mons,
Where England lost hosts of their very brave sons.
We are not Europeans, how can we be?
Europe is miles away over the sea.
We are the English from England, so let us be proud,
Stand up and be counted. Shout it out loud.
Let's tell our Government and Brussels too,
We are proud of our heritage, the Red White and Blue.
Fly the flag of St.George, or the Union Jack,
Let the whole wide world know. We want our England back.
