Goodbye to my England! So long my old friend!
Your days are now numbered, being brought to an end.
To be Scottish, or Irish, or Welsh is just fine
But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.
The French and the Germans may call themselves such,
So can the Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch
You can say that you're Russian, or maybe a Dane
But don't say you're English, not 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 of the England of old.
Writers like Shakespeare, and Milton and Shaw
The pupils don't learn about them anymore,
Nor about Normandy, Arnhem or Mons
When England lost hosts of her vary brave sons.
We are not Europeans, how can we be?
Europe is miles away, over the sea.
We're the English from England, so let's all be proud
Stand up and be counted and shout it out loud!
So let's tell our Government, and Brussels too,
We're proud of our heritage, the Red, White and Blue
Fly the flag of St George, or our own Union Jack
And let the world know WE WANT ENGLAND BACK!
