English Rose

English Rose by The Jam

No matter where I roam
I will come back to my English rose
For no bonds can ever tempt me from she
I’ve sailed the seven seas,
Flown the whole blue sky.
But I’ve returned with haste to where my
Love does lie.
No matter where I go I will come back to my English rose
For nothing can ever tempt me from she.
I’ve searched the secret mists –
I’ve climbed the highest peaks
Caught the wild wind home to hear her soft voice speak
To hear her soft voice speak
No matter where I roam
I will return to my English rose
For no bonds can ever keep me from she.

I’ve been to ancient worlds
I’ve scoured the whole universe
And caught the first train home
To be at her side.
No matter where I roam
I will return to my English rose
For no bonds can ever keep me from she.

At the Oval and in Trafalgar Square this week, there was only one flag, and it was England’s. There was only one song, Blake’s. If you can’t be a nation until you have your own national anthem, this is a hurdle the English have now cleared.

— James Kirkup, The Scotsman
