John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7825
AUTHOR:Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
QUOTATION:He is an Englishman!
  For he himself has said it,
  And it’s greatly to his credit,
That he ’s an Englishman!


  For he might have been a Rooshian
  A French or Turk or Proosian,
Or perhaps Itali-an.
  But in spite of all temptations
  To belong to other nations,
He remains an Englishman.
ATTRIBUTION:The Englishman.
