Quartered Safe Inside

(Peter Lastima)

A nostalgic and sentimental song about England as recalled by expatriates, far from home and missing a gentle, and rather traditional, version of the green and pleasant land.

I miss the pubs, of course I do, I miss the Stoics who are queuing up to queue, At Waterloo, I miss the rain, on country lanes, I miss the way the country's going down the drain, Again, The market towns, the village greens, I miss the Last night of the Proms although I've never even been, I miss the Queen. But it's all here inside, It's quartered safe inside for the duration, And though this sense of nation May be part imagination, It's the only pass we have for embarkation, It's quartered safe inside for the duration. Northamptonshire, and Brighton pier, I miss the hundred little groceries you'll never get out here, Like ginger beer, I miss the Edinburgh tattoo, I miss the Boat Race 'though I never cared who won or even knew, Which blue was who, The Oval sky is celendine, But 'though the England tail's collapsing and it's ninety-eight for nine, The prospect's fine, But it's all here inside, It' s quartered safe inside for the duration, And though this sense of nation May be part imagination, It's the only map that shows a destination, It's quartered safe inside for the duration. The BBC, is lost to me, Though I miss the reassurance where I think it used to be, To X XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX X XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX X XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX X XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX X XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX X XXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXX X XXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXX
