Mutton Birds – Queen's English lyrics

(Don Mcglashan)
On a West Coast station there was a
Us Congressman, he was a
Guest on a talk show on the
Subject of language
And he said
"I'm a great one
For giving people their due,
But you have to draw the line somewhere
And when I look up ahead
I can only see one world
And it's a world without interpreters
And phrase-books because...
The Queen's English was
Good enough for Jesus Christ
And it's good enough for me
The Queen's English was
Good enough for Jesus Christ
And it's good enough for me,
It's good enough for me"
Julius Caesar when he
Stepped onto the shore he
Didn't do some rain dance he just
Said it plain, and he said:
"I came, I saw, and I conquered"
So don't try to make me
Feel like a fool
I know what I stand for
And I know what they want
They just want to feel special
But they're wrong, they're wrong,
They're wrong, they're so wrong because
The Queen's English was
Good enough for Jesus Christ
And it's good enough for me
The Queen's English was
Good enough for Jesus Christ
And it's good enough for me,
It's good enough for me"
Some people want to
Go back to living in caves they
Bend over backwards and the
Thin end of the wedge goes in
All you little countries
All you towers of Babel
Well you better wake up, and speak up, and
Earn your place on the team
And if you don't know
Please and Thank you
Well you better learn, you better learn,
You better learn, you better learn, because
The Queen's English was
Good enough for Jesus Christ
And it's good enough for me
The Queen's English was
Good enough for Jesus Christ
And it's good enough for me
It's good enough for me"
