Peter Gabriel wrote a song in 1978 called D.I.Y. where he says in a tone that is more enthusiastic than angry in the England’s English slang far than (American) English.

There is a beauty to doing things yourself, building things with your children.  If there is one thing that Nick has learned from his dad Victor is being close to your sons and guiding their character takes precedence over anything in life.
