Parthenon Marbles

Who is talking about marbles?
These are not marbles any more.
These are the flesh and blood
Of our forefathers, who fought
For centuries to preserve.

Who is talking about marbles?
These are not marbles any more.
These are the soul of a nation
Who gave birth to Democracy,
And fought to preserve it.

We all, the flesh and blood
Of the Hellenic Nation, plead
Oh Great Britain, please
Give us back our stolen soul.
Who is talking about marbles?
These are not marbles any more.
