51st State

Aha, so Leon thinks Canada is the 51st state, but New Model Army have been claiming that for the UK since 1986 by the look of it.. 🙂

Our star-spangled Union Jack flutters so proud
Over the dancing heads of the merry patriotic crowd
Tip your hat to the Yankee conqueror
We’ve got no reds under the bed with guns under our pillows

If you’ve never heard them before then give them a listen, especially their earlier stuff. Got to be one of my favourite bands!

One thought on “51st State

  1. Lets’ not forget The The‘s 1986 track, Heartland.

    The ammunition’s being passed and the Lord’s been praised
    But the wars on the televisions will never be explained
    All the bankers gettin’ sweaty beneath their white collars
    As the pound in our pocket turns into a dollar

    This is the 51st state – of the U.S.A.
