Don suggests as a British national anthem,

What about "And let me the cannikin clink, clink"?

Cheers!

Sean.

I always thought the English national anthem went:

Enguland swing like a pendulum do
Bobbies on bicycles two by two
Westminster Abbey, the Tow'r of Big Ben
And the Rosy Red Cheeks of the Little Chil-dren
