I'm made in England
I call it my kingdom
She may let me down
She would never take a bow for me
Sold down the river
You scream till they hear ya
And i'm still standing proud
Even as every town has fallen down to it's knees

Right from the time when i was born in 89'
I lived in a terraced house, 10th down the line
We didnt have much money but we got on just fine
And knock down ginger is what we played just to pass the time
And for school dinners we had something called semilina
Your guess is good as mine i dont know what it is either
And i can remember an explosion going off on the wharf one day
And i was scared and that's when mum used to say

She would often tell me don't be afraid
She would often say it's just that things ain't great
And all through the night time sleeping with the lights
It's just the way you was made, just the way you was made
Ahe would often tell me just be safe
Ahe would often say run fight another day
Never went to church but yet sometimes we prayed
It's just the way i was made

I'm made in England
I call it my kingdom
She may let me down
She would never take a bow for me
Sold down the river
You scream till they hear ya
And i'm still standing proud
Even as every town has fallen down to it's knees

Straight home from school and it was grange hill on the box
Dinner was a chippy now we love the curry shop
Then straight to the streets to see what was happening
There was still a healthy fear for the old bill for breaking and entering
The only bit of grass we had said no ball games
And in the bushes there was glue sniffers and perverts on a day to day
And then a bus explodes and 7/7 blows us all away
And thats when i got advice from me dad

And he would often tell me don;t be afraid
He would often say its just the same fear a different name
So take it in your stride, dont let it compromise
Just the way you was made son, just the way you was made
He would always tell me dont cause a fight
But if it comes your way son fight for your life
Never went to church but sometimes i prayed
It's just the way i was made

I'm made in England
I call it my kingdom
She may let me down
She would never take a bow for me
Sold down the river
You scream till they hear ya
And i'm still standing proud
Even as every town has fallen down to it's knees

And I love the feeling and sense of pride
Is when England are playing and we can stand there side by side
And the passion is felt throughout the ground
Or people watching on their TV screens
Cos we hope we're gonna bring it home and it ain't just a dream
God how sad is that
I talk about pride
And you tag me the enemy
I'm just your average working class, tea in a flask, subsidizing your properties!

But we won't stand up and take back and stop this all this greed
There is no choice out there they all bring us to our knees
And sometimes we drink drink drink to excess
Cos one half dont realise the other half's in a mess
So take anoither picture and send me the fine
Charge me the earth for all the things i need to buy
It's totally insane but i guess we wont complain
It's just the way we're made

I'm made in England
I call it my kingdom
She may let me down
She would never take a bow for me
Sold down the river
You scream till they hear ya
And i'm still standing proud
Even as every town has fallen down to it's knees

I'm made in England
I call it my kingdom
And i'm still standing proud
Even as every town has fallen down to it's knees
