For over four hundred years
Her agents have secured the borders
And maintained the nation's soul
They act as one and take no orders

Were Britain's best ever agents
Hitler didn't know what up against
Bacon, Bangers and Mash
Always willing for a great big bash
Danger was their main desire
Jumping from a flying pan into a fire

'Let’s hope they are agents of change.'
'Very drole Sandra.'
