Description:
Song of the Falklands is the unofficial anthem of the Falkland Islands (God Save the Queen being official). It was written in the 1930s by Christopher Lanham, a Hampshire Schoolteacher, while working on West Falkland.

Lyrics

In my heart there’s a call for the isles far away</br>Where the wind from the Horn often wanders at play.</br>Where the kelp moves and swells to the wind and the tide</br>And penguins troop down from the lonely hillside.</br>

CHORUS:</br>Those isles of the sea are calling to me</br>The smell of the camp fire a dear memory.</br>Though far I may roam, some day I’ll come home</br>To the islands, the Falklands, the isles of the sea.</br>

There’s a camp house down yonder I’m longing to see,</br>Though it’s no gilded palace it’s there I would be.</br>Just to be there again I would race o’er the foam,</br>For that lone house so far is my own home sweet home.</br>

Chorus</br>

Now we’re off to the Falklands, so wild and so free,</br>Where there’s tussock and kelp and the red diddle-dee,</br>And the wild rugged beauty that thrills more than me</br>Is bred in the bones on the isles of the sea.</br>

Chorus
