It all depends on what you accept as the English flag of course. Those Scots who think of it as the flag of St. George can get really annoyed by that song. But then that's the idea, isn't it?
Oh Jim, you cynic you. I just like the song and I thought it was an appropriate day to suggest it. :)
I love that one and also I Vow to thee my country. I always liked to sing that one in school..Jerusalem was our school song... :)
High note?? It shattered one of my best crystal glasses and now there's Chateau Petrus all over my MBP! ;)
Has it dried yet Tcheuchter? Braw voice she had though.
Chateau Petrus? I think the match deserved a Blue Nun at best. :)
I never liked Jerusalem Sue but I like your alternative choice.My school song was specially written for the school.It starts:O'wer the bridge that spans the riverMoving slowly to the seaLooks the Morgan now as everFairest school in all DundeeAnd as day by day we view herStanding stately on the hillProudly pay we homage to herGladly sing with right good willChorusHail the Morgan stately, splendidHail (jail) the teachers, every oneCheer we every goal defendedEvery hit and every runWe would strive with every lessonAs we strive when at our playLearn with every passion sessionWho would rule, must first obey.If that had been written today the Righteous would have been jumping up and down about it not meeting some equality policy.
Thanks for the kind thought but I'd rather Jerusalem too.
"I've Got A Brand New Combined Harvester". Well, it makes more sense than most of these national anthems.
Jings banned, hope you aren't thinking I meant England could adopt my old school song. ;)
Or 'Don't Give Up' Demetrius. I think Lionel Ritchie sang that once but I could be very wrong.
