Rule Britannia lyrics: What are the words of Rule Britannia?


The BBC’s decision to play an instrumental version instead of one with the song’s lyrics prompted Prime Minister Boris Johnson to intervene.

Mr Johnson said: “I cannot believe… that the BBC is saying they will not sing the words of Land of Hope and Glory or Rule Britannia as they traditionally do at the end of the Last Night of the Proms.

“I think it’s time we stopped our coining embarrassment of our history, about our traditions, and about our culture, and we stopped this general bout of self recrimination and wetness.”

Nonetheless, the issue of the songs, deemed racist by some, has left people in Britain divided.
