Let us rally to the battle cry
of the fabled Great Saint George
The name upon the lips of every Knight
Who under the red cross fought,
Who better then to represent
All heroes of this banner
After all he slay the dragon
Returning the Maiden to her Manor.
But really what’s it all about
This obscure outdated day?
A day to show your Englishness
In each and every way
To fly the flag and paint your face
And have a glass of beer
But from where can this day be truly traced?
What dragon did the people fear?
Is it just an allegory for the evils of the World
And how great our Nation of the cross
When to the battle cry we’re called?
Well then let’s hope the great and good
In all the land are just, as George
And follow that cross in truth and trust
And with compassion and justice forge
A land of hope and glory
Just as in days gone by
Let us live up to the noble story
And let that banner fly!
