The Lyrics

This is just my touched-up version of another original parody by Phil Alexander. Thanks, Phil! (",)
[Charles]
I'm gonna be an eco-king, so GM crops, beware

[Queen]
Well, you'll have to wait until we're dead, my little son and heir.

[Charles]
No, Mummy will not abdicate, 'cause no queen has before.
And if she's like her dear old mum, she'll live til 84

[Queen]
Thus far, you've always been a patient thing...

[Charles]
One would rather like to be king!

(Queen: You've rather a long way to to go now Charlie.
Listen, if you think...)

[Charles]
With mummy dead and buried, I'll finally have power
Get Edward off the telly, lock Daddy in the Tower

(Queen: Oh hush, dear!)

[Charles]
Free to talk to plants all day

(Queen: Well, one needn't be proud of it!)

[Charles]
Building modern stuff my way!

[Queen]
We think it's time that you got back to riding on your horse

[Charles]
One hopes you didn't mean Camilla Parker-Bowles, of course

[Queen]
If this is where the monarchy is headed, we won't die
Not this morning, nor this afternoon, we'll never say Goodbye
I'll live until a hundred and something...

[Charles]
One would rather like to be king!

Even in the daylight, even in the deep dark
Everyone look out, one's - gonna be the mon-arch

(Queen: Not yet!)

[Charles]
One's gonna knock down every old building
And Wills and Harry won't get a look in
It's gonna be King Charles's finest fling
Oh, one would rather like to be king [x3]

I love the politeness of Charles's demand - 'one would rather like to be king!' He never will, of course.

As a citizen of a country that recently had a referendum to remove itself from the commonwealth (unfortunately the motion was defeated) this is awesome. I loved the part about the horse and Camilla. 555.
