The Proclaimers - Throw The R Away

Je score:

I've been so sad

Since you said my accent was bad

He's wearing a frown

This Caledonian clown

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate

To make sure my words on your Saxon ears don't grate

But I wouldn't know a single word to say

If I flattened all the vowels and threw the 'R' away

Some days I stand

On your green and pleasant land

How dare I show face

When my diction is such a disgrace

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate

To make sure my words on your Saxon ears don't grate

But I wouldn't know a single word to say

If I flattened all the vowels and threw the 'R' away

You say that if I wanna get ahead

The language I use should be left for dead

It doesn't please your ear

And though you tell it like a leg-pull

It seems you're still full of John Bull

You just refuse to hear

Oh, what can I do

To be understood by you

Perhaps for some money

I could talk like a bee dripping honey

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate

To make sure my words on your Saxon ears don't grate

But I wouldn't know a single word to say

If I flattened all the vowels and threw the 'R' away

You say that if I wanna get ahead

The language I use should be left for dead

It doesn't please your ear

And though you tell it like a leg-pull

I think you're still full of John Bull

You just refuse to hear

He's been so sad

Since you said his accent was bad

He's wearing a frown

This Caledonian clown

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate

To make sure my words on your Saxon ears don't grate

But I wouldn't know a single word to say

If I flattened all the vowels and threw the 'R' away

Flattened all the vowels and threw the 'R' away

If I flattened all the vowels and threw the 'R' away
