The New St. George is written by Richard Thompson

The New St. George/La Rotta

Now is the time for action,
Leave your satisfaction:
Can't you hear St George's tune?
St George's tune is calling you on!
Freedom was your mother,
Fight for one another:
 
Leave the factory, leave the forge,
And dance to the new St George!
 
Don't believe pretenders
Who say they would defend us,
While they flash their teeth and wave
The other hand is being paid,
They choke the air and bleed us,
These noble men who lead us:
 
Leave the factory, leave the forge,
And dance to the new St George!
 
The fish and fowl are ailing,
The farmer's life is failing,
Where are all your backroom boys?
Your backroom boys won't save us now!
We're poisoned by the greedy,
Who plunder on the needy:
 
Leave the factory, leave the forge,
And dance to the new St. George!

New Saint George Mixed Morris

Welcome to the home page
of New St George Morris, a
fun-loving bunch of rogues and
reprobates from the East Midlands
of England who like to indulge in
some Cotswold morris dancing when
they're not working for a living.
and yes, they are named for
Richard Thompson's famous song,
which one very good reason for
listing them here on this page
Oh...and drop them a line,
the law can't touch you for it!
