Where Is England?

England is a troubled land

So many ills beset it

A fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work

Seems we haven’t met it

Yet immigrants still seek our shores

Land of hope and glory

And wealthy folk still rule the roost

This the land of Tory

 

Lost an empire so we did

Haven’t found a role

Still ruling the neighbours

But haven’t found our soul

Brexit was a cry of pain

Where is England now?

Struggling to know itself

Struggling anyhow

 

Lovely country gentle folk

When we’re at our best

But arrogant and spiteful

If the Daily Mail’s the test

The monarchy has held us

But maybe not for long

Come home now to yourself

Be humble yet and strong
