Better Dead

 

 

I’m a Common or Garden Englishman

 

my castle is my shed

 

Marked right through like Blackpool Rock

 

British till I’m dead

 


When I die please bury me

 

in England’s green green Land

 

A Union Jack draped over my coffin

 

my mates will understand

 

 

While the bugle plays the last post

 

the Rock of Ages read

 

Remember then my one last wish

"rather it was you instead" !!!

 

Eric
