The National Cheddar Cheese Anthem

A lot of cheese was harmed in the making of this track.


And did those cows in ancient time
Graze upon Britain's pastures green?
And in an ancient British gorge
Was Cheddar born from milk pristine?

Did Hercules in days of yore
Eat Cheddar cheese to gain his strength?
And for Methuselah, was cheddar
The secret to his life's great length?

Bring me my crackers, crisp and pure
Bring me my wooden board and wire.
Bring forth my cheese, mild or mature
Bring me the Cheddar I desire!

For on my sandwich, chips or toast
No other cheese can stay my hand.
The finest on the board, I applaud
The best loved cheese in all the land!
