What struck me most about the new James Bond film, Skyfall, was just how delightfully British everybody was! And not just James Bond, Q, and M, but even Adele, the British singer-songwriter who performed the song which played over the opening credits (see here if you don't remember it).

As a way of showing my appreciation, I've rewritten the lyrics to this song to more clearly emphasize its British origins. Adele: if you want to re-record your song using my lyrics, you are completely welcome to.

Skyfall Opening Credits Song (UK Lyrics)

This is Britain.
Home of Heathrow and Big Ben.
Try our Sunday roast and then,
feel your heart burst again.

For this is Britain.
Birthplace of Charles Darwin.
Who's not read by common men,
but now we have Slytherin!

Should the Queen fall,
or just stumble,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together at high tea.

Crumpets are where tea starts.
They're flakey things that fall apart.
And our lagers are often dark.
Plus we have Gordon Ramsay,
who will yell at you;
that man simply has no heart!

Should the Queen fall,
or just stumble,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together at high tea.

At high tea.
