Taken from Shadows

lyrics

Made in England, England, England,
Made in England, England

A song for you and everyone
That inhabit dear old Albion
Her coastal waters heave and ho
As waves of travellers come and go
Who decides who guards the rights?
The Ballad of Britain begins tonight

Turning left on Lahore and Leeds
Children spilling across the streets
Football chanting undulates
Searching for Anglo Saxon ways
White admirals won’t amalgamate
Pakora and pint, ironically great

With me ruby murray, kebab in a hurry
Fags and Becks from the corner shop
Head to toe in Pradamark
I’m made in England, England, England
Made in England, England

To Trinidad via Notting Hill
Mosely’s henchmen fear instil
Jerk and joint, accuse and point
The bottom rung we must exploit
Whilst weary workers worn out by debt
Don’t know who to vote for next

From Brummie via Bangladesh
The hunger for cheap never rests
Rana Plaza our Bullring serves
Foreigners are thieves and perves
Pile ‘em high and sell ‘em cheap
The gentle sigh as foundations creak
