Song for patriotic prejudice

zhenyach представляет песенку комиков Фландерса и Свонна, призванную восполнить недостаток патриотизма в одной отдельно взятой... Начинается она "с типичного английского преуменьшения: The English, the English, the English are best".

And crossing the channel one cannot say much
For the French or the Spanish, the Danish or Dutch
The Germans are German, the Russians are Red
And the Greeks and Italians eat garlic in bed

The English are Moral, The English are Good
And Clever and Modest and Misunderstood

And all the world over each nation's the same
They've simply no notion of playing the game
It's not that they're wicked or naturally bad
It's just that they're foreign that makes them so mad

The English the English the English are best
So up with the English and down with the rest
