Lyrics from The Waterboys' Old England which is on the classic recid, This Is The Sea.
"You're asking what makes me sigh nowThe Waterboys' songwriter/singing bloke, Mike Scott runs a huge Waterboys website.
what it is makes me shudder so"
Well, I just freeze in the wind
and I'm numb from the pummeling of the snow
that falls from high in yellow skies
where the well loved flag of England flies
where homes are warm and mothers sigh
where comedians laugh and babies cry
where criminals are televised, politicians fraternize
journalists are dignified and everyone is civilised
and children stare with heroin eyes
heroin eyes, heroin eyes
Old England !"
