Lyrics:

And so I checked all the registered historical facts
And I was shocked and ashamed to discover
How I'm the 18th pale descendant
Of some old queen or other

So, I broke into the palace
With a sponge and a rusty spanner
She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

Take that, monarchy.

Some girl's mothers are bigger than
Other girl's mothers

Lyrics:

Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to London and I,
I booked myself in at the Y ... W.C.A.
I said : "I like it here - can I stay ?
I like it here - can I stay ?
Do you have a vacancy
For a back scrubber?"

Then it meant that you were
A protest singer

"Oh, would you like to marry me,
And if you like you can buy the ring?"
She doesn't care about anything...

Lyrics:

I decree today that life
Is simply taking and not giving
England is mine - it owes me a living
But ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye
