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.

We are invisible. England doesn’t have its own parliament or national anthem. I watch the rugby, and I see the Welsh singing “Land of Our Fathers,” and the Scots have “Flower of Scotland,” while we are singing a song that doesn’t even mention our country.
