ENGLAND MY ENGLAND






England my England is going



England of my fatherís has gone



England of tomorrow is blowing



In like a darkening storm





The tide of the century is turning



As it turned in centuries before



But this time sadly Iím learning



It is turning as never before





England my England is falling



Sinking slowly down to her knees



Listen, listen, sheís calling



Why donít we answer her pleas?





England my England, my island



My fortress, my haven, my home



England this England is my land



My allegiance is steadfast in stone






Terry Maltby
