John, are you sure Noel Coward wrote "grayish"? I think not.... :>)
Well, that's certainly what I remember! And it's certainly the version my
offspring used to chant along with the other great nationalistic effort by
Flanders and Swann: "The English, the English, the English are best, I wouldn't
give tuppence for all of the rest!" which they sang at top volume while we
drove through Scandinavia improvising verses about Finns, Norwegians et al. I
await your verses about Poles with bated breath!
I shall now put my head well below the parapet.
