As I told you once, I like the music of that song -it was used by John Pepusch in John Gay's 1728 'Beggar's Opera'- but, Ô┬┐do you really need to use such an anti-Spanish lyric as your sig? Don't forget that in times of that queen, Portugal and Flanders were part of the Main -the Spanish Main- and that looks like Drake's cry of war... How would you feel if I signed with a song about taking the Isles in name of Philip II? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

What kind of politically correct moron are you? Not to mention grossly ignorant, stupid and snivelling. Even if your presumption of nationalism were correct - which it isn't - your ridiculous hippie "let's not offend anyone ever" views are as risable as they are ill-informed.

The song refers to the Peninsular War, where British troops fought to expel the tyrant Napoleon from Spain. It is not in any way anti-Spanish.

But let's suppose, for the sake of argument, that it was. Big friggen deal. Nations fought wars in the past, and, here's news to you, half of them lost. That gives the victors the right to write the history books and songs. So, if your little piss-ant country got thrashed by the British then occupied by the Frenchies it's hardly surprising that there're songs that refer to it.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Captain Hippie. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

O miles gloriosus, accept my excuses. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif Even if that song was used in John Gay's 'Beggar's Opera' in 1728 -which you, well-o'wisdom, of course know well, it was created for the Peninsular War of 1808-1814, instead of being reused... Forgive me, since in my dismal ignorance I didn't know Wellington's troops had invented the time machine just to share the score with Mr. Pepusch -another name well known by you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Forgive me for the moronish thinking that a song that says: "I'll invade Spanish territories in the name of Elizabeth I" is an anti-Spanish warlike song, obviously they were talking about watching football in an English way. What a hippie politically correct (?) comment by me! BTW, anyone who knows me, knows how nationalistic-ill I am, and how angry I got about it: nothing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

BTW, the Queen commanded them to Spain -La Coru˝a- and they couldn't. It is called the anti-Armada and was as shameful disaster as Spanish Armada. Is it in your History books? Wait, I forgot who has the right to write History. In the web it looks like a Spanish defeat... you won't find the outcome, how many sailors got back home. Have you read about a little piss-ant country thrashed by Vikings and occupied by Frenchies- who never left? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Anyway, this is for you:

Come Spain anytime, and drink all the tourist-sangria you want. I'll pay the fee. We're always short of drunken hooligans to laugh at... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif
