Lyrics:

(PS this is written in American)

No English Rule!
-----------

It was the American Revolution
A Secret Committee of Correspondence
Find help with a Europe Solution
Benjamin Franklin wrote to France

Secret agents overseas
There will be no English rule
With Lafayette's expertise
There will be no English rule
Benjamin Franklin, for our cause
There will be no English rule
We won't follow British laws
There will be no English rule

France hated England
lost the 7 years war
Revenge was in their plan
Lost colonies on US shores

After the Declaration
Ben Franklin sent overseas
Silas Deane's covert operation
Secret help for the colonies

Will France's foreign minister, Vergennes
Stick to his promise and to his pledge
Washington lost New York Campaign
Lafayette comes in to help regain

Pro-American sentiment
Was sweeping over France
Vergennes attempts an arrangement
with Spain who wanted a chance

For California and Florida
US starts winning on the field
Washington won Battle of Saratoga
England wants a fast peace deal

Secret agents overseas
There will be no English rule
With Lafayette's expertise
There will be no English rule
Benjamin Franklin, for our cause
There will be no English rule
We won't follow British laws
There will be no English rule

France couldn't wait
Spain backpedaling
So they threw their weight
behind the Americans
in February 1778
Treaties of alliance
were made consummate -
American and French defiance

France recognized the USA
There was also a special term
That neither side could pull away
War with Britain is reaffirmed

Others could join the battle line
alliance (other countries like Spain)
Spain joined in 1779
And then the French Navy came
With more troops, arms, and ammunition
The fleet was able to win the
Key ports and water positions
Continental Army won in Virginia

NO ENGLISH!
Their rule is done
NO ENGLISH!
They're on the run
NO ENGLISH!
With French defenders
NO ENGLISH!
It's the game ender
NO ENGLISH!
British surrender!
NO ENGLISH!
NO ENGLISH!

in 1782 Britain concedes
The victory they both desired
But in France it's sown the seed
For its monarchy, it has backfired

Secret agents overseas
There will be no English rule
With Lafayette's expertise
There will be no English rule
Benjamin Franklin, for our cause
There will be no English rule
We won't follow British laws
There will be no English rule!
