For England & St. George In praise let’s raise our flagons to the conqueror of dragons to the Saint who fought for all he thought was fair. Let’s fly our flags and bellow for that bold, courageous fellow with a stomping-monster tale beyond compare. Sent forth in times of togas in an England crammed with ogres asking for a stonking glance from George’s lance; he snuffed out fire breathers and the mealy-mouthed deceivers instilling faith and giving truth a chance. He tamed all flaming lies taking scoundrels by surprise when he lunged and plunged his blade through scaly skin. And now the House of Commons begs a George to conquer dragons--- politicians spouting flagonfuls of spin! In praise let’s raise a glass to St. George who kicked the arse of the roaring morons billowing hot air. Restore Old England's beauty with your quaint and saintly duty and brave bombast-preying, dragon-slaying flair… ‘cause the citizens are tearing out their hair!
