National Anthem

To the tune 'Barwick Green':

England is a lovely place
Full of hills and green stuff
A people of amazing grace
From monarchs to the dog rough
On an island
North of Europe
Fading days of Empire
History's not been kind to us but
We look to the future.

Not too hot and not too cold and
Nothing tries to eat you
Courts are fair and doctors free
The police tend not to beat you
Pies and chips
And cheese on toast
And tea to soothe our worries
We don't need the rest of you
(But thanks for bringing curries)
