OK, I imagine the British who live in Europe want to stay where they live, despite the Brexit vote, so I imagined this song being sung by the British government to the government of the European Union, as a plea to not throw all the British out once they aren't European citizens any more. Also, it's about how European they are in their host countries... To the tune of, obviously, Let My People Go (the Peter, Paul and Mary version):

LET MY PEOPLE STAY

Go to the halls of Brussels
Over the Channel, everywhere
Go ask the halls of Brussels
To let my people stay

Who's that yonder speaking French (let my people stay)
Eating croissants on a Paris park bench (let my people stay)
Who's that yonder speaking French, eating croissants on a Paris park bench, go to the halls of Brussels...

Who's that yonder speaking Dutch?
Amsterdam folks keep their stash in a hutch...

(then you can plug in other places)

LAST verse:

Who's that speaking Norwegian?
Oh, never mind, that one's Glaswegian...

Get it? In case Scotland leaves the UK...

Annyway, add some verses, y'all!

Who's that eating gulyas soup?
Buda or Pest, you can join the group..

Who's that in yon Luxembourg?
Country the size of the Hindenberg...

Who's that yonder Swedish dear?
Meatballs are not on the radar here...

When Europe was the EEC
Let my people stay!
We learned to trade politically
Let my people stay!

Go down, yonder, way down to Belgium's land
Tell old Merkel to Let My People Stay!

We didn't think our votes would count!
Let my people stay!
With such a tiny daft amount
Let my people stay!

Go down etc.

Farage has quit U.K.I.P.
Let my people stay!
There's swearing on the B.B.C.!
Let my people stay!

Go down etc.

Now trade's gone down and cost's gone up
Let my people stay!
The Brexit's been a proper pup!
Let my people stay!

Go down etc.
