The Lyrics

Oh God! that butler's awful
The tabloids make me cry
The shop it holds a storeful
And people buy and buy
These tabloid tales consume us
The crap they print inside
Take not press freedom from us,
But take away their pride.


Just a page in the gutter press
No reason for belief in this,
The story's old, makes souls cry out in pain
An easy way for a shite journo
A pile of dosh for the sly who know
The Secret of the Checkbook - cash in his chips

Canard of the Sun-you'll see,
The Mirror's fake headlines
The lies of the Mail are misleading-you'll see.

He went to them with a servant's kiss-
And-tell tale, taking the piss
Papparazzi photographs to try
Sexing up some quick embrace,
And the headline's shown all over the place
And I read, and I thought it just like porn

Canard of the Sun-you'll see,
The Mirror's fake headlines
The lies of the Mail are misleading-you'll see.

So do I have some takers
Who'll take this on with me?
Boycott the tabloid papers
Stop their hypocrisy
The time has come: open your eyes
No longer stand aloof
For the one who'll ask for proof
And make them print the truth
It is You, oh
It is You

Phil: This story made it all the way to headlines here in Sweden. Wish I could show you some of what the press here wrote. For an openminded tolerant ironic like me it was LOL galore, because for the liberal movement here there is nothing more politically correct than being against monarcy, except maybe being all out for the bisexual. So now that it looks like there might be a queer on the throne of England in the not so distant future... convulsions! :-)

God save the Queen
Hes not a He-Man being
But theres no suture
Hes still aaah-creaming!

Im really tempted to parody the whole Sex Pistols song, but I feel it is better left to some Limey. ;-)

That is awesome, Phil. It more than does justice to my all time favourite Iron Maiden track. Up the Irons!

Peter, it wasn't intended to be purely about that specific story, more about the whole sorry state of the press in this country...
Thanks, Jeff.

Hmm... I remember you posting another song with that purpose. :-)
