At night the baby brotherhood and the inter city crew
And paint their faces red white and blue
And anyone else that they can scare
By raising their right hands in the air
What do they know of England who only England know
From the stands of the empire stadium
With the simplicities of bigotry
These little john bullshits know that the press
So that the general public fear them
And the wasted seed of the bulldog breed
What do they know of England who only England know
Our neighbors shake their heads
While my countrymen piss in the fountains
And to prove to the world that England
They repeat the lies that caught their eyes
But the wars they think they're fighting
What do they know of England who only England know
And the society that spawned them
And then wraps itself in the union jack
Oh look out my country's patriots are hunting down below
