------Played by U.S. Army Strings-------
I hate how my country (USA) hogs all the glory. I truly believe, for several reasons, that Great Britain is the best country Earth has to offer.

This is my third video honouring the British. My newest one can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHNfvJ...
This song is called "The British Grenadiers," the words are:
Some talk of Alexander, and some of Hercules
Of Hector and Lysander, and such great names as these.
But of all the world's brave heroes, there's none that can compare.
With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the British Grenadiers.

Whene'er we are commanded to storm the palisades,
Our leaders march with fusees, and we with hand grenades.
We throw them from the glacis, about the enemies' ears.
With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the British Grenadiers.

Then let us fill a bumper, and drink a health of those
Who carry caps and pouches, and wear the loupèd clothes.
May they and their commanders live happy all their years.
With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the British Grenadiers.

Would everybody please cease the political conversations?
Muslim this, immigration that, Germans, too? A little irrelevant, isn't it? It is not what this video is all about.

Featured video comment: I agree with the author with all this racist talk, its a video about a song, not radical thinking, if you want to be all racist and neo-nazist, go to the BNP website and stay there.
