England

Words & music by Parker & Charles

I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
May this fair land we love so well
In dignity and freedom dwell.
Though worlds may change and go awry
While there is still one voice to cry...

There'll always be an England
While there's a country lane,
Wherever there's a cottage small
Beside a field of grain.
There'll always be an England
While there's a busy street,
Wherever there's a turning wheel,
A million marching feet.

Red, white and blue; What does it mean to you?
Surely you're proud, shout it aloud,
"Britons, awake!"
The empire too, we can depend on you.
Freedom remains. These are the chains
Nothing can break.

There'll always be an England,
And England shall be free
If England means as much to you
As England means to me.
