Hope & Glory Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I arrive eyes wide fired up
Tried not to slide and let the side down
Now the plane's on the ground
I'll find a good profession

It's 1957, I've come to the motherland
To make a home to put my bed in
This weather does my head in
Some people are less than kind I wish

Mama was here so I could unwind
But I'm supposed to be the good news
So I lace up these hard black shoes
And look more work

These streets were never paved with gold
They simply make my feet hurt
They just make my feet hurt

Just a little money in my pocket
And a little bit left for those I love
To have enough food on my table
And a little bit more for those who call

And in this land of hope and glory
You'd think there's enough for us all
You'd think there's enough for us all

When I arrive eyes wide petrified
Tried not to cry and let the side down
Now the plane's on the ground

It's 20 years later, mama's in the arrival lounge
I take a few seconds to kiss her
Then look around at what's happened to my home town
What's going on

But papa doesn't look too strong
Rush home in a cab, windows up
Now I hear dad cough
"We gotta get in before they switch the lights and water off
For the night"

I have to get to know the guard dogs
'Cause they bite
Progress just passed us by to the right

Just a little money in my pocket
And a little bit left for those I love
To have enough food on my table
And a little bit more for those who call

And in this land of hope and glory
You'd think there's enough for us all
You'd think there's enough for us all

Just a little money in my pocket
And a little bit left for those I love
To have enough food on my table
And a little bit more for those who call

And in this land of hope and glory
You'd think there's enough for us all
You'd think there's enough for us all

The public needs to know
That there may be other people out there
Who may be planning
To attack against the United Kingdom

That is why there are a number of
Other security service operations underway
There is still a very serious threat of an attack
The threat level is at severe
Indicating the high likelihood
Of an attempted terrorist attack at some stage
