Rings a bell, McF, but I don't know it. Sorry about this, but I'm here to correct your spelling!! "Britannia": one T and two Ns. "Waives" with an I in this sense. Don't think of this as criticism: think of it as your letting me help you to be an even better poster. (Otherwise I'd never get to sleep at nights!)

Rule Britannia

When Britain first, at heaven's command,
Arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter of the land,
And guardian Angels sung this strain:

Rule, Britannia, rule the waves;
Britons never will be slaves.

The nations, not so blest as thee,
Must, in their turns, to tyrants fall:
While thou shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful, from each foreign stroke:
As the loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.

Thee haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame:
All their attempts to bend thee down,
Will but arouse thy generous flame;
But work their woe, and thy renown.

To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine:
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles thine.

The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coast repair:
Blest isle! with matchless beauty crowned,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.

-- James Thomson

My mistake, but the next one works. It made me grin about myself that I spoke about correct spelling and misspelled the invisible fine print in my first link.

Written by Vic Gammon
Recorded by Pete Coe on his CD "Long Company" (BashCD45)
Title..."Kings and Queens of England"

V1

Now Charles the Second had eleven bastard children
George the Third went mad
And Edward the Seventh, they thought was Jack the Ripper
But, Richard the Third weren't as bad as people thought he was
Victoria, laid back and thought of England
Charles the First lost his head
Well the best thing about those Kings and Queens of England, is that most of them are dead....

Chorus

Singing, Rule Britannia, Britannia waives the rules
Kings, Queens, Jacks and Knaves and Tyrants
Cheats and Fools

V2

Now, William the Third was a Protestant and Dutchman
James the First was a Scot
And, George the First spoke nothing else but German
What a mixed up, interbred lot !
And, William the First, was a grasping Norman bastard
Beleive me, It's no lie
Well, there hasn't been an English King of England
Since, Harold got one in the eye

Chorus

V3

Now, She was a well heeled blue blood Cinderella
Him, Prince Charming with big ears
But, He had a thing going with the ugly sister
So, it ended all in tears
So, arise now you ghosts of old Oliver Cromwell
Brave Harrison and Tom Paine
Would you rid our land of this monstrous carbuncle
And bring sunshine after the reign....!!!

Chorus

A magnificent song....sorry can't do the tune on here..no talent for that, but the chorus is to Rule Britannia
Enjoy!!
Ralphie

I suppose it's good we got 'our' country back but as I've been part of the advanced raiding party and have been living as a 'sleeper' in England for 27 years shagging your women , taking your jobs and drinking your beer it's nice but academic. I've a mate who says that all us 'Sweaties'are like hemaroids 'We come down but never go back up !!'

And to think that all those years ago working on my BS, when asked in the final exam in a "History of England and the British Empire" course, to explain fully and completely the role of naval power in the development of Imperial power (one of two questions). I got full credit for my answer, which I remember to this day, yeah, though it be 20 years and more ago -

"If Brittania can rule the waves, Brittania can waive the rules."

Professor nearly fell out of the chair laughing when read this. Got the exam back with the comment "succinct and to the point" written on it.

Steve - of course its an old joke. He got it tho - and spelling was never a strong piont of mine. Fortunately, it wasn't of his either. Now spell checkers have changed all that. Ah, well....

Any relation to Gordon?

MC Fat, you wrote "... 'Sweaties'are like hemaroids 'We come down but never go back up !!'."
Then Steve Parkes replied, "Hemaroids"? It's tempting, but I won't push my luck!"

Not to be too "anal" about it, but it's "hemorrhoids."

Pete, if you think spell checkers have solved the problem, check out the spellcheck poem that is posted in the recent thread about "final 's'." It's pretty funny, and pretty much to the point.
