Ian Hunter Lyrics - Letter to Britannia from the Union Jack

Letter to Britannia from the Union Jack Lyrics:
(ian hunter)

Poor britannia - drowning in your waves
With the body of the unknown soldier and the best of the brave
I have known you ever since I was a child
How come you donít salute me - now - when I smile

You was always so young and on all oí that money
How come new mourners pass you by and think itís so funny
Iíd be there with you but Iím chained unto this stake
For I am loyalty but my mast I cannot forsake

I looked down on a bunch of amusements, I looked down walls
Iíve looked on hangings ín parades ín city halls
And Iíve seen love in so many living rooms
And Iíve seen rich men slowly die inside their tombs

I know weíre just two charms but itís heavy on my mind
Have faith in me I said, now, look at time
I know youíre just a victim of your history but
Have faith in me, I said and you would be free....

You pull me up and you pull me down
And when the queenís in residence I hang around
I donít wave madly ícos the climateís civilised
Just flutter sadly ícos Iím old ín Iím wise

And you-you been up, and you - you been down
You been through many things I know you been around
I have fought armies for you in the conflicts of the past
Britannia, I implore you, do not lower me by half.
