Sir John Squire
And I've swallowed, I grant, a beer of lot -
But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.
Squire quotes
God heard the embattled nations sing and shout
"Gott strafe England" and "God save the King!"
God this, God that, and God the other thing
"Good God!" said God, "I've got my work cut out!"
It did not last: the devil, shouting "Ho.
Let Einstein be," restored the status quo.

Squire Sir John quotes
At last incapable of further harm,
The lewd forefathers of the village sleep.
Squire Sir John
The better production of our generation has been mainly lyrical and it has been widely diffused.
