As Long As We Beat The English..............

A lot of people complained about the Stereophonics song, saying that it was whipping up ‘racial’ hatred.

I agree that Welsh nationalism and the campaign for independence should be built up by stressing the positive aspects of Wales and should not be dragged down into negative anti-English attacks.

But in which case, can someone please tell me why I feel so damn good this morning????

Just in case you don’t know the song, here are the lyrics:

We don't wanna be your enemy,
But when we're on the field,
It's red, white and green,
Get beat by the Irish,
Get beat by the Scots,
The French ought'ta struggle,
But you're the one we want,
We want...

As long as we beat the English,
As long as we beat the English,
As long as we beat the English,
we don't care

As long as we beat the English,
As long as we beat the English,
As long as we beat the English,
we don't care

We don't care

What utter nonsense. The song actually starts with "We don't wanna be your enemy"!!

I agree that their complaints were nonsense - but it did not stop them complaining....

Personally I think it is a fun song and I have been singing it all morning.
