Love your English accent


You love my English accent

But that leaves me confused.

You don’t tell a French speaking Frenchman

His accent’s awfully cute.


I’m from England; speaking English.

The clue is in the name.

I don’t think I have an accent

Whatever you may claim.


If someone has an accent

I’m rather afraid it’s you.

I’m just speaking proper English

It’s what we English do.


So tootle pip for now old bean

And off we jolly go.

I’m speaking my own language

It’s English don’t you know?
