“We Wunt Be Druv” – Motto & Poem of Sussex

[adapted by Richard W. Symonds – “An Ode To Ifield”]

Some folks as comes to Ifield
They reckon as they knows
A darn sight better what to do
Than silly folks like me and you
Could possibly suppose.

All folks as comes to Ifield
Must follow Ifield ways,
And when they’ve learned to know us well
There’s no place else they’d wish to dwell
In all their blessed days.

There ain’t no place like Ifield
Until you goes Above,
But Ifield will be Ifield 
And Ifield won’t be druv.
