England and Britain
(To be sung to the tune “Bemerton (Caswall)”)
England is a nation,
Britain is a state.
England’s past redemption,
Britain’s out of date.
On “My” Member of Parliament
(To be sung to the tune “Franconia”/“Blest are the pure in heart”.)
My MP’s name is Hunt,
I think that he’s a prat.
A better word would rhyme with “punt,”
But no, I can’t say that!
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
(To be sung to the tune “Innocents”/“Conquering kings their titles take”)
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales,
When the state that rules them fails,
They won’t sink into the sea!
They’ll be ours, and we’ll be free.
