22nd of June, 209 AD, A crowd gathers.
Ohhh they fuckin' love a good beheading.
Watch as St.Alban's head, rolls down the hill.
The crowd stood still, 'cause what they just saw,
It petrified them to the core,
Ahhh to the core.
Ahhhhhh.

As the executioner raised his as his axe,
I swear the saint smiled.

Welcome Verulamium, cathedral city,
All eyes on the saint.
Welcome Verulamium, cathedral city,
All eyes on the saint.

Our city with its beautiful history,
Is being diluted.
But we will not let go.
No we wont.
Now get a grip on your roots boy.
Don't let go.
But we will not let go.

Ahhhhhh.

As the executioner raised his as his axe,
I swear the saint smiled.

Welcome Verulamium, Cathedral city,
All eyes on the saint.
Welcome Verulamium, Cathedral city,
All eyes on the saint.

And it's cold outside.
And it's cold outside.
And it's cold outside.
And it's cold outside.

As the executioner swung his wedge,
His eyes popped right out his fuckin' head.
Then when he should see the ancient moment,
The making of the first British martyr.
British martyr.

Here lies truth, where I stand.
Here lies truth, where I stand.
Here lies truth, where I stand.
Here lies truth, where I stand.

So where St.Albans head,
Laid to rest, after the kill.
Fresh water sprung up from the ground,
At the bottom of what's now,
Holywell hill.
Holywell hill.

    General CommentOk here is what I don't get......

    The council want tourists, and your city has cool history so why not make that the main attraction? Seriously, I have never been to St. Albans and the first thing that has made think "that sounds like a cool place" was this song.

    Are the council retarded?

    General CommentI love this song. Did you know Rou went outside in the dead of the night in just his boxers and got the others to throw water on him while he recorded "and it's cold outside"?
    Now that'd dedication! haha

    Btw, I know it's just a typo but I thought I'd point out that "As the executioner raised his as his axe," is just "as the executioner raised his axe."

    Apart from that, perfect :D

    General CommentVerulamium was a Roman town/city and is now part of St.Albans.
    On top on Hollywell hill there is a cathedral/abbey. (reference to the cathedral city part)
    Hollywell hill is in Verulamium
