Mr. Average Englishman - Poem by John Wathen

Mr. average Englishman is racist,
he doesn't mean to be.
Its just that he feels so superior,
to people like you and me.
He doesn't care where you come from,
he will hate you just the same,
he will hate you for your life style
and your imaginary benefit claim.
You are in his bleeding country.
and taking all his jobs
It doesn't make much difference,
they're mainly lazy yobs,
who can't get off their arses
to go out and earn their pay,
and that's why us bloody foreigners,
are coming here to stay.
