|God save the Queen|
|Around the Academy:
Surprisingly, the United Kingdom's anthem God Save the Queen is one a lot of people struggle with.
Most of us can just about cope with the first verse.
But when the music starts for the second verse - you're in all sorts of trouble.
Now you can make sure you're word perfect next time.
God Save the Queen
God save our gracious Queen!
Thy choicest gifts in store
While God Save the Queen is the official anthem, an old American spiritual song has somehow become the trademark tune of English rugby.
Swing Low Sweet Chariot has a simple, easy-to-follow tune and repetitive lyrics.
This made it a popular part of many teams' post match repertoire.
And now it's a big hit on the terraces too.
Swing Low Sweet Chariot
Swing low, sweet chariot,
I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?
