The Lyrics

My tribute to the beautiful Princess Diana...
Goodbye People’s Queen
You’re forever our superstar
You hadn’t sense to buckle up
When riding in your car
You sped out of the alley
And they followed
At speeds insane
They chased you through the streets till
Your Mercedes was in flames

Can’t believe you had to die
In a tunnel in a Benz
While the paparazzi swarmed you
Saying they were friends
Their motorbikes might have thrown you
It all is so surreal
Your driver had a drink before
He got behind the wheel

Chauffeuring is tough
Winding road you never made
Why he would be seated up at the bar
And life was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
Stuck their cameras in your face
When they should have been right there helping you

Can’t believe you had to die
In a tunnel in a Benz
While the paparazzi swarmed you
Saying they were friends
Their motorbikes might have thrown you
It all is so surreal
Your driver had a drink before
He got behind the wheel

Goodbye People’s Queen
You’re forever our superstar
You hadn’t sense to buckle up
When riding in your car
Goodbye People’s Queen
Half a million to your funeral will go
We’ll see you as something more than special
More than just another TV show

Can’t believe you had to die
In a tunnel in a Benz
While the paparazzi swarmed you
Saying they were friends
Their motorbikes might have thrown you
It all is so surreal
Your driver had a drink before
He got behind the wheel

I thought the famous operatic tenor was implicated in her death. Didn't they report that she was pursued by Pavoratti on motorcycles? ;D
