Pass Me By


The EU’s leaders sit at a round table during summit debates. All the better to look each other in the eye when they clash, scrap, and finally compromise.

Unimpressed by the forum’s decision-making process, the UK has told the EU it can shove its King Arthur ethics since he was clearly not a real Brit, being part-Roman and therefore, surely, a European.

It is in this spirit that the UK’s Eurovision entry 2019 has now been changed.

The altruistically-entitled Bigger Than Us will be replaced by the more parochial Pass Me By, a jolly song from the days of the UK’s pre-Europe glory. That’ll show ‘em.

I’ve got me ten fine toes to wiggle in the sand, lots of idle fingers snap to my command. A luvverly pair of heels that kick to beat the band, contemplatin' nature can be fascinatin'. Add to these a nose that I can thumb, and a mouth by gum have I,

to tell the whole darn world

if you don't happen to like it,

deal me out, thank you kindly,

pass me by.

Pass me by

pass me by if you don't happen to like it

pass me by.

I tell the ‘ol darn world

if you don't happen to like it,

deal me out, thank you kindly,

pass me by.

Pass me by,

pass me by if you don't happen to like it

pass me by.

I've got me two great shoes that never saw a shine, (trousers she can ‘old up with a laundry line). A luvverly patch that hides an awful lot o’ spine, (shirt-tails flyin')

I'm a bloomin' dandelion! (add to these a grin from ear to ear) and all the proper gear have I, to tell the ‘ol darn world if you don't like me assortment

deal me out, thankyou kindly

pass me by.
