Just Dont Say You're English
Goodbye to my English - So long my old friend!
Your days are numbered, being brought to an end.
To be Scottish, Irish or Welsh, That's fine,
But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.
The French & the Germans may call themselves such,
As may Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch.
You can say you are Russian or maybe a Dane,
But don't say you're English ever again.
At Broadcasting House that word is taboo,
In Brussels they've scrapped it, in Parliament too.
Even schools are affected; staff do as they're told,
They mustn't teach children about English of old.
Writer like Kipling, Milton and Shakespeare
Why are schools not teaching them - something to fear?
How about Agincourt, Hastings, Arnhem or Mons.
When England lost hosts of very brave sons?
We are not Europeans, How can we be?
Europe is miles away, over the sea.
We're the English from England, let's all be proud,
Stand up and be counted - shout it out loud!
Let's tell our Government - and Brussels too -
We're proud of our heritage and Red, White & Blue.
Fly the flag of St George or the Union Jack,
Let the world know - WE WANT OUR ENGLAND BACK!
