Stuart Davis – World Learns English lyrics

The children of Wales in formative years
Can summon old Celtic with polyglot sneers
So kids, what's the translation- I mean how would you say
"My useless language is dying away?"

Study some numbers and we'll see whose dumb
To get into business you only need one

The world learns English to climb up a wrung
If you want to be heard you speak in this tongue
The Tower of Babel is now in reverse
We're bringing together what God had dispersed

It's not really true to say cultures collide
Some get erased, some spread out wide
Which brings us to you, and your obsolete ways
We might use your dead language to coin a cute phrase

But the key to your future is learning to blend
Comprehende, Katalaves, Verstehen Sie, friend?
