Of yore some hearts were in the Highlands

now ours are in the Falkland Islands

 

from Britain to those blessed isles

it’s more or less 8000 miles

 

yet by rights we claim they’re ours

game to the last like the super powers

 

when diplomatic efforts fail

the senior service must set sail

 

we mean to prove we can be meaner

than the macho men of Argentina

 

meet force with force or we’ll look weak

only sissies turn the other cheek

 

if you ask your average punter

he’ll say confront the jumped-up Junta

 

send a fleet with Union Jackunionjack.gif (9780 bytes)

to seize the damned Malvinas back

the bulldog straining at its chain

chases an Empire once again

 

this show of strength for your enjoyment

made better news than unemployment

 

neutral penguins in that stretch of water

took a dim view of the slaughter

 

patriots partial to a fight

proudly praised the stirring sight

 

muchos gauchos mocked ‘El Gringo’

but look who won the war by Jingo!
