From slumber wakes the nation’s pride
Like lions lain by side, by side.
From torpor to vigil, unmoved to rouse,
As one, to battle, a nation vows.
Divests itself of the timid hush
And shove by shove, we push and push.
England, my England, the lions roar
And roar, and roar, and roar, and more
A kiss for the legend and impassioned cry
We’re England, and will be, till the day we die.
