The Proclaimers - Throw the R away

Tekst piosenki:

I've been so sad
   Since you said my accent was bad
   He's worn a frown
   This Caledonian clown
   Some days I stand
   On your green and pleasant land
   How dare I show face
   When my diction is such a disgrace
   I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
   To make sure my words
   On your Saxon ears don't grate
   But I wouldn't know a single word to say
   If I flattened all the vowels
   And threw the 'R' away
   You say that if I want to get ahead
   The language I use should he left for dead
   It doesn't please your ear
   And though you tell it like a leg pull
   I think your still full of John Bull
   You just refuse to hear
   Oh what can I do
   To be understood by you
   Perhaps for some money
   I could talk like a bee dripping honey.
