lyrics

THIS LAND IN WHICH WE LIVE
THIS PLACE WE CALL OUR HOME
THE FIELDS AND STREETS AND PATHS
WE SHOULD BE FREE TO ROAM

IN OUR CITIES AND OUR TOWNS
OR A COTTAGE BY THE SEA
IN THESE EVER-CHANGING TIMES,
CULTURE AND TECHNOLOGY

WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP, NO
WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP, NO
WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP
THIS ENGLAND

THE FREEDOMS THAT ENDURE
OFTEN BOUGHT AND PAID IN BLOOD
BY THOSE WHO’VE GONE BEFORE
THOSE WHO REALLY UNDERSTOOD

HOW WE LIVE HOW WE MIGHT LIVE
IN OUR CITIES AND OUR TOWNS
THOUGH WE KNOW HARD RAINS FALL
WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP

WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP, NO
WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP
THIS ENGLAND, THIS ENGLAND

IT’S NOT A COLOUR,
IT’S NOT A TRAIT,
IT’S NOT A TRIBE
OR A CREED TO STATE,
JUST A LAND AND A TIME TO SHARE,
A COMMON TREASURY
LIKE THE DIGGERS SAID…

WE MUST NEVER GIVE UP (THIS ENGLAND)
