Born in the U.K.
Then you see it happen again
Wouldn't it be something to live
Or at least demanding

In things uncertain
Just when do you start doing time
October Nineteen sixty nine
Where were you in Seventy Six
You wanna be a rebel
With two years to wait

She made us want to live
Were trying to set us free
This was the Silver Jubilee
We made something out of nothing

With the Iron Lady
Let's post the boys to war
It's somewhere he's not been before
Then you see the Union Jack
But somehow you know
It's a small reminder every day
