    On the day the UK chose its song for Eurovision and amidst a backdrop of European uncertainty, we were invited on the James Piekos breakfast show on BBC Radio Humberside to write a song TO Europe with help from the listeners of the show. This is the result. Enjoy!

    LYRICS
    If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
    Don't say it out loud like a curse
    If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
    Even though it is what I deserve

    Why should I stay, do you want me to go?
    My heart says yes but my mind says no
    Burning down bridges, walls will collide
    A chill rushes over the north sea divide

    Saying goodbye won't be easy my friend
    All things good and bad they must come to an end
    This project of peace was not built to last
    Let's consign the fear and the hate to the past

    If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
    Don't say it out loud like a curse
    If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
    Even though it is what I deserve

    There's a break in this town 'tween the old and the young
    The silence is louder than words
    The borders they're torn, confusion the order
    No deal screams out to be heard

    There's a special place in hell for those taking over
    The free way that we like to live
    There is no trace of doubt in my mind
    We May or we May not forgive

    If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
    Don't say it out loud like a curse
    If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
    Even though it is what I deserve

    The folks they are restless from North to the South
    They feel it deep down in their bones
    Cards on the table you cant tell the truth
    With fake hands that are made of stone

    On the back stop we stand, undecided we sunder
    We were brought up with Europe in tow
    So long farewell, we're lost and we're leaving
    Release me and please let me go

    If it's raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
    Don't say it out loud like a curse
    If its raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
    Even though it is what I deserve

    It's still raining in Spain don't speak ill of my name
    Don't say it out loud like a curse
    It's still raining in Spain don't bring trouble my way
    Even though it is what I deserve
