White chalk cliffs that face the sea,
Quiet fields, dale and lea.
Murky towns all wreathed in smoke,
Slack pit-head, coal and coke.
Open moors that stretch for miles,
Hawthorn hedges, gates and stiles.
Foggy London's noisy streets,
Chicken faarms and mooing cows,
Office girls sit reading novels,
Slow old trains and sleepy stations,
Windermere and Old Scafell,
Whirring trams and baler's wagons,
Winding roads and ancient taverns,
Yorkshire pudding and cottage cheese,
These and countless other things are England.
