What made good queen Bess
Such a great success?
What made Wellington
Do what he did at Waterloo?

What makes every Englishman
A fighter through and through?
It isn't roast beef, or ale, or home, or mother
It`s just a little thing they sing to one another

Stiff upper lip, stout fella
Carry on, old fluff
Chin up, keep muddling through

Stiff upper lip, stout fella
When the going`s rough
Pip pip to old man trouble
And a toodly-oo too

Carry on through thick and thin
If you feel you`re in the right
Does the fighting spirit win?
Quite, quite, quite, quite, quite

Stiff upper lip, stout fella
When you`re in the stew
Sober or blotto, this is your motto
Keep muddling through

When a bounder starts to hiss
You must give him blow for blow
Make the blighter say, "What`s this?
`ullo, `ullo, `ullo, `ullo, `ullo"

Stiff upper lip, stout fella
When you`re in the stew
Sober or blotto, this is your motto
Keep muddling through

Keep muddling through
Keep muddling through
Keep muddling through
