Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Queen Elizabeth of England does a fantastic job looking happy with her life - but, alone, in her bedroom at night, what is she thinking?? hmm?
It's not that easy being Queen
I never get to jump on trampolines
or sing the words to "Yellow Submarine"
while in the shower
or in the limo
or somewhere quite embarrassing like that

No it's not easy being Queen
I never trick-or-treat at Halloween
I never get to try the latest jeans
or cargo pants
or nose-rings
or funky velvet pirate hats

But then, you know, I can't really complain
I get to sip a heap of fine champagne
I get to chat to leaders from Ukraine!
and Spain!
and entertain....
their wives and all their kids

Still it's not easy being Queen
I somehow got a grandkid called Eugene
I've never ever banged a tambourine
and sometimes,
on my own,
late at night,
....I kind of wished I did.....

You paint a really funny and witty scenario, with this one, Stuart..Ha Ha, the Queen in Jeans or cargo pants...I can almost visualize someone like the late Benny Hill, doin' this and acting it out...

good on you airfarcewon - I'm a big affectionate Benny Hill fan. Not so much for his jokes and sight-gags, as for the fact that Benny thought they were so funny - thanks for the comment

That's really sweet, Stuart... and who knows, maybe she does? (OTOH, maybe that's all chances for a knighthood out the window ;-) )

Oh, I Thaught This Song Was About Freddie Mercury.

Nice work man, keep bringing them out

Cool pacing, funny contrast with the original song--from the ridiculous to the sublime and back. My vote is brought to you by the letters S, M and A...and by the numbers 3 and 5!

thanks Phil - it was already out the window many years ago....sorry GBHD, but that's a great idea.......thanks, Billy, still trying to get to 10 (today I think).....thanks Ingeborg, I get the Sesame Street reference but, call me dumb, why S,M,A,3,5?

Excellent rhymes. Tambourines aren't the only things she doesn't get to bang.
Stuart McArthur - October 10, 2004 - Report this comment
thanks Spaff - (I've circulated some of your stuff over here in australia - to much appreciation...Shakespearian Pie esp.) - looking at her kids maybe the bangs she did have should have been tambourines

Side-splittingly ridiculous, with a touch of pathos...55

When I saw the title, I went "Oh god, not another Freddie Mercury rip-off", but no, this was totally clever. 555

She got Ozzy Osbourne and Brian Wilson performing in her back garden on the Golden Jubilee show, though she also got Phil Collins and Will Young...but maybe she went to the bar then! Well done.
