Made in England Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Somewhere in a town in England
Lay a babe with a curious smile.
He was of your father's children.
Born each side of a dry-stone mile.
Verse 2
He grew up through the schools and factories,
Brunel's tunnels and bridges bold.
Grey towers built high on that Kingdom
With apartments still unsold.
Verse 3
Somewhere in a town in England.
Could be Newcastle, Leeds or Birmingham.
And were you made in
England's green and pleasant land.
Verse 4
He accepts no unemployment
And is to indeterminate station bred.
Is possessed of skills and reason
Flies the flag upon his head.
Verse 5
Watches the democratic process
Grind it's way through the Commons cold
Filled with fiery infiltrators
Who would pave the streets with England's gold.
