  • 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
    I don't want to go
    Oh! England, my Lionheart
    Oh! England, my Lionheart
    Oh! England, my Lionheart
    I don't want to go Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
