Transcript: 

Verse 1: Britain’s flag has always stood for Justice, Britain’s hope has always been for Peace, Britain’s foes have known that they could trust us To do our best to make the cannons cease. Britain’s blood will never stand for insult Britain’s sons will rally at her call, Britain’s pride will never let her exult, But we’ll never let the old flag fall.
Chorus: We’ll never let the old flag fall, For we love it best of all, We don’t want to fight to show our might, But when we start, we’ll fight, fight, fight. In peace or war you’ll hear us sing, God save the flag, God save the King, At the ends of the world, the flag’s unfurl’d, We’ll never the let the old flag fall.
Verse 2: Britain’s sons have always call’d her Mother, Britain’s sons have always lov’d her best, Britain’s sons would die to show they love her, the dear old Flag laid on each manly breast, Britain’s ships have always rul’d the ocean Britain’s sons will serve her one and all. Britain’s sons will show their true devotion And we’ll never let the old flag fall.
