In the House of Lords, there was a surreal debate on the nonmotto, even after Lord Hunt of Kings Heath, an official in the Ministry of Justice, said flatly that there were no plans to have one.
“I do not think I will go down that route,” he said. “But I will say that the motto of Birmingham City Football Club is ‘Keep right on ’til the end of the road.’ ”
The End of the RoadEvery road through life is a long, long road,Filled with joys and sorrows too,As you journey on how your heart will yearnFor the things most dear to you.With wealth and love 'tis so,
But onward we must go.
Keep right on to the end of the road,
Keep right on to the end,Tho' the way be long, let your heart be strong,Keep right on round the bend.Tho' you're tired and weary still journey on,Till you come to your happy abode,Where all the love you've been dreaming ofWill be there at the end of the road.
With a big stout heart to a long steep hill,We may get there with a smile,With a good kind thought and an end in view,We may cut short many a mile.So let courage every day
Be your guiding star alway.
Chorus: Keep right on etc.
