The Lyrics

Some royal fun...
They'll on duty day and night
The regal, royal type
Yeoman Warders
Guarding the London Tower
Watching and serving
Protecting the crown jewels
But their duty is mainly looking after prisoners

So many tourists have waited to see
A piece of living history
Dating from the 16th century
Created by Henry the VIII
He left 12 sick and old Yeoman behind
To guard the Tower
Many centuries later
They’re still there maintaining order
No matter which Sovereign is in power

(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters
(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters

Where did the name originate?
Can anyone pinpoint a date?
Probably ‘cause up until the 18th century
The Beefeaters were paid partially in meat!!!
But the Yeoman Warders
Still serve Elizabetha Regina proud
In at least one royal ceremony they do participate

(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters
(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters

(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters
(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters

(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters
(Oh-oh, here they come)
Watch out tourists
For the scarlet and gold dress up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They’re the Beefeaters
