Pro Patria

 

 

So many things you've done are wrong

and you've been doing them too long:

you rob the weak, reward the strong,

my country.

 

The British 'Bobby' - there he'll stand

so brave (his riot shield in hand).

He 'executes' a Dick's* command

'for Country'.

 

I knew we'd 'sold-out' to the yanks

but now what's left's gone to the banks-

just don't count on my vote of thanks,

'my' country.

 

The British population's jeers

fall on the unrepenting ears

of con-men, 'spivs' and profiteers.

This country's.

 

The H.M.G.'s 'convenience'

is lordly life (at our expense)

- all we take in returns 'Offence'.

Our Country!

 

And don't think once we're rid of Brown

his rotten house will tumble down

O look! - up pops another clown

for country.

 

It spies upon our every move,

it trades in 'spin' (and not in truth)

-these days, only a fool would love

their country.
