Oh England, my Lionheart
I'm in your garden fading fast in your arms
The soldiers soften, the war is over
The air raid shelters are blooming clover
Flapping umbrellas fill the lanes
My London Bridge in rain again

Oh England, my Lionheart
Peter Pan steals the kids in Kensington Park
You read me Shakespeare on the rolling Thames
That old river poet that never ever ends
Our thumping hearts hold the ravens in
And keep the tower from tumbling

Oh England, my Lionheart
Oh England, my Lionheart
Oh England, my Lionheart
I don't want to go

Oh England, my Lionheart
Dropped from my black Spitfire to my funeral barge
Give me one kiss in apple-blossom
Give me one wish, and I'd be wassailing
In the orchard, my English rose
Or with my shepherd, who'll bring me home

Oh England, my Lionheart
Oh England, my Lionheart
Oh England, my Lionheart
Oh England, my Lionheart
Oh England, my Lionheart
I don't want to go
