The Lyrics

OK, so our queen has been on the throne for nearly sixty years now. But it's not easy...

We don't mean to whine
We don't mean to moan
But it's sixty years
On this bloody throne

We're more than a face, more than a cliché
We're more than a figurehead for the UK
But it's not easy to be queen

Wish that we could fry
Those who want to see
This kingdom of mine
A republican country

It may sound absurd, our powers are weak
Just some ruler married to a Greek
At times we long for a tyrant's regime
Even monarchs have the right to dream
It's not easy to be queen

God save the Me, the gracious Me
No, not again
That song's driving me insane
We're not crazy.. but Philip is

we can't execute
People we want dead
Wish that we could shoot
Mohammed Al Fayed

We're only a queen, ceremonial sword
Getting a Duke of Edinburgh Award
Only a queen, with sceptre and gown
And a jewelled and very heavy crown
A heavy crown
Heavy crown
It weighs one down
This heavy crown

We're only the queen
With a royal cachet
And the forecast says
We will reign today

We're only the queen
For sixty long years
And it's not easy

Its not easy to be queen

Great Royal spoofing

I'm sure it wouldn't be "easy", but I wouldn't mind giving it a go for, say, a month or two! :)

:-) Thanks..

Fiddlegirl - I think what makes it not easy is that you can't just "give it a go for a month or two".. it's a full-time, lifetime neverending duty that I for one really wouldn't want. Security code's 365 which seems somehow appropriate :-)
