London Tribute

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was emailed this a while ago. I think it is very moving.

It didn't say who wrote it but they did a good job.

''You came to place your bags of hate
On bus and train, you made us late
Yet we'll be back again tomorrow
We'll carry on despite our sorrow

Your bags of hate caused some to die
Yet we stride out strong with heads held high
You'll never win, we will not bow
You can't defeat us, you don't know how

This London which we love with pride
Is a town where scum like you can't hide
Don't worry we will hunt you down
Then Lock you up in the name of the Crown

We're London and we're many races
Just look you'll see our stoic faces
We all condemn your heinous act
You will not win and that's a fact

We'll mourn our dead and shed a tear
But we will not bow to acts of fear
You're out there somewhere all alone
There's nowhere now you can call home

Olympics ours we've won the race
Your timing then a real disgrace
Our strength you'll find remains unbowed
We're London and we're very proud.''

Sorry if this was posted already but I didn't see it anywhere

I remember vividly soon after Sept 11th that our (U.S) anthem was played in a Cathedral in London as a tribute to what we were going through. I still get goosebumps when I think about it. Not sure if anyone in the U.S. has played God Save the Queen to reciprocate so I'll do it here...

First the massive drumroll fanfare (more goosebumps)

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen:
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the Queen.

That is very touching. God bless all of our UK friends in your time of tragedy.
