The Lyrics

Well, it has finally happened, and we now have a reigning man. I wrote this about a year ago, and have it performed a few times over the year, but it has been retired from the repertoire for obvious reasons.
The queen is aging
Can't have long to go
According to all sources
The Queen is *very* old
Then the line of succession
Not so much "if" as "when"
For the first time this century
We're gonna have reigning men

It's reigning men, R.E.I.G.N,
Reigning men, again
And the National Anthem we will sing
God Save the goddamn *King*

It's reigning men, in succession
It's reigning men, every specimen
Charles, Wills, George will come
The next three genera-shee-yuns

Agnatic primogeniture
Is how it used to be done
That's when the next ruler
Is the monarch's first-born son
Though now we're gender-equal,
There's just one small detail:
The next three generations
You've guessed it, they're all male
Oh, it's reigning men, soon

The queen is aging
Really getting old
According to our royal correspondent, Nicholas Witchell
She ain't got long to go
And then for the first time
Since anyone can remem (-ber)
For the next bloody century
It's gonna be reigning man (start reigning men)
It's reigning men, in the future
It's reigning men, again


It's reigning men
Harry, Meghan - not your time
I guess you know you're out of line
For the future - it's reigning men

Ah, the title sub is so obvious when you think about it. Had a good chuckle when I saw the spelling of the title. Ironic how the gender-equal has been initially over-ridden by circumstance. Particularly liked the if/when line. QE2 was feeling much better when M&P had her as The Dancing Queen! Pick your votes up in room 555 of The Palace.
