The Lyrics

I'm sure this was expected that since I write songs about important dead people, my obligation continues. I wasn't going to use the Killers version for the OS, despite the line "She lived three times longer than Jesus." That song does not fit the mood. I also think Adele should perform a modified version of this song at the Queen's funeral. Consider this a template.
(Verse 1)
Everybody heard since world war two
Appointed colonel, make a car brand new
From her speech in Africa we knew
A prince from Denmark
Her power did accrue

But when the cold war started young
Will my sister marry, that Pete Townsend?
‘Cause I’ve been picked to sit on a throne
When its televised, wearing crowns and

(Bridge)
She led as a symbol
The people did lean
She did like to mingle
Of when you were queen

(Chorus)
Let me celebrate your birthday twice
And Christmas message with that
Great advice met with charming wit and grace
Despite the scandals
We were glad you are in charge
Took care of corrrgis
She led as a symbol
The people did lean

(Verse 2)
Twenty nations go their own way
Assassinations, all gone astray
Many first travels overseas
Americans, and the Chinese

(Bridge)
She still led as a symbol
The folks did still lean
She did like to mingle
Of when you were queeeeeen

(Chorus)
Let me celebrate your birthday twice
And Christmas message with that
Great advice met with charming wit and grace
Despite the scandals
We were glad you are in charrrrge
Took care of corrrrgis
She led as a symbol
The people did lean

When you were Queen
When you were Queen
When you were Queen
When you were Queen

(Verse 3)
Leftists shame monarchy
As we change our currency
In the Commonwealth
In the Commonwealth
Saw many wars, and Covid stall
EU, Brexit, Berlin Wall
With Phil’s poor health
Phil’s poor health*

(Bridge)
You still led as a symbol
The folks did still lean
She did like to mingle
Of when you were queeeeeeeeen

When you were Queen
When you were Queen
When you were Queen
When you were Queen

(Chorus)
Let me celebrate your birthday twice
And Christmas message with that
Great advice met with charming wit and grace
Despite the scandals
We were glad you are in charge
Took care of corrrrgis
Not too keen with Charles in charge
In his seventies
She led as a symbol
The people did lean
When you were Queen
* = Piers Morgan had speculated in an interview, that 17 months after Phillip passed away, Elizabeth II passed away from a broken heart. Well, she's got time to catch up with him. #RIPQueenElizabeth
