We and They

Father, Mother, and Me, Sister and Auntie say
All the people like us are We, And everyone else is They.
And They live over the sea, While We live over the way.
But-would you believe it?
They look upon We, As only a sort of They!

All good people agree, And all good people say,
All nice people, like Us, are We
And everyone else is They:

But if you cross over the sea,
Instead of over the way,
You may end by
(think of it)
Looking on We
As only a sort of They!
