"So This Is Great Britain" as written by and David Healey Bryn Fowler....
So this is great britain and welcome aboard
A sinking ship thats full of shit and someone nicked the oars
A failing false economy
an anti-punk automony
OUr once unique Identity's
Been washed from our shores

So this is great britain and these are our whores
David and victoria there's hope for us all
YOu can rule britannia
the Media will Marry you
The Build you up to knock you down
Just like the Berlin Wall

In a land of hope and glory
do we really rule the waves?
The truth is a different story
We're all just a bunch of slaves

Yeah this is great britain lets raise a jar
Just look at georgie best and how it got him so far
The prince of pleasure lost his crown
By getting high and getting down
The Alcoholic Anti-hero's Visabilly Scared

So come on Great Britain lets sleep around
Sex is so much fun you better spread it around
It really is infectious
and your soul is nothing precious
so grab some meat and treat your loins
To that by which their bound

In a land of hope and glory
do we really rule the waves?
The truth is a different story
We're all just a bunch of slaves

We'll soon be state Britain
If our Best freinds have their way
Just another star upon the flag across the waves

    General CommentI think the song is about the decline in Britains identity and our apparent dependance on america.

    I love the line "a sinking ship thats full of shit and someones nicked the oars"

    genius!
