The Un-european Anthem

Tune: Ode to Joy (last movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony)

      Wake up, all you nations, hear us,
      Integration's failed us all;
      It is time to free the people,
      It is time for europe's fall.
      We would all be much more pros'prous
      With-out such incompetence;
      So reclaim your sov'reign po-wers,
      Save yourselves this vast expense.

      Empires through all hist'ry crumble,
      Europe too will likewise fall;
      Brussels, Strasbourg, all will tumble,
      Let's get out to save us all.
      Regulations crippl-ing business,
      Beef moun-tains and great wine lakes;
      It is time to halt this madness,
      Time to do whate'er it takes.

      Euro-bankers want our gold stocks
      To finance their spending spree.
      Then they want our pension monies,
      All sto-len from you and me.
      Time to exit from th-is rip-off,
      Time to reclaim our sov'reignty;
      Time to tell them where to get off,
      Then our people shall be free.
