Take Down the Union Jack (Millennium Song)

Capo wherever you like.
I believe the recording is in the key of C (capo at 5), but I always do A (capo at 
2) because I find it easier to sing.

G
Take down the Union Jack
   C       Cadd9    G
It clashes with the sunset
    D             Am 
And put it in the attic
         C             G
With the Emperors old clothes
G
When did it fall apart ?
C        Cadd9  G
Sometime in the 80s
         G            Am
When the good and the great
                C              G
Gave way to the greedy and the mean

F             C
Britain isnt cool you know
         G               D
And its really not that great
     F            C
Its not a proper country
                G             D
It doesnt even have a patron saint
             F        C
Its just an economic union
       D#       F       G
Thats past its sell-by date

G
Take down the Union Jack
   C       Cadd9    G
It clashes with the sunset
    D                Am
And ask our Scottish neighbours
       C                  G
If independence looks any good
     G
Cos they just might understand
       C       Cadd9    G
How to take an abstract notion
   D         Am
Of personal identity
            C          G
And turn it into nationhood

F                C
Is this the 19th Century
         G            D
That Im watching on TV ?
    F                 C
The dear old Queen of England
        G          D
Handing out those MBEs
F                    C
Member of the British Empire
             D#        F         G
That doesn’t sound too good to me

C           D
Gilbert and George
               Em
Are taking the piss arent they ?
C           D                     E
Gilbert and George are taking the piss
C                  D
What could be more British than
        Em
Heres a picture of me bum
C           D                     E
Gilbert and George are taking the piss

G
Take down the Union Jack
   C       Cadd9    G
It clashes with the sunset
    D                 Am
And pile up all those history books
    C                 G
But dont throw them away
     G
Cos they just might have a clue
      C       Cadd9  G
About what it really means
         D            Am
To be an Anglo hyphen Saxon
           C           G
In England-dot-Co-dot-UK
         D            Am
To be an Anglo hyphen Saxon
           C           G
In England-dot-Co-dot-UK
