Songs of a Savoyard. The Englishman

  He is an Englishman!
        For he himself has said it,
        And it's greatly to his credit,
  That he is an Englishman!
        For he might have been a Roosian,
        A French, or Turk, or Proosian,
  Or perhaps Itali-an!
        But in spite of all temptations,
        To belong to other nations,
  He remains an Englishman!
  For the true born Englishman!
