The Lyrics

Goodbye England's Gran,
Although I always knew you were small,
You stood tall in people's minds,
Though you smelt like a hospital.

Your teeth were brown and stumpy,
Your dentist just couldn't do enough,
Four years at dental school,
And they looked like sugar puffs.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a sandal in the bin,
Discarded by a one legged monarchy,
When your hips caved in,
And I would have liked to have known you,
But I can't now 'cause you're dead,
But your legacy continues,
Because your family's inbred.

Ugliness we've lost,
We can no longer laugh or joke,
You showed us what true bravery was,
When a fishbone made you choke.

You lived a hundred years,
The last one's spent largely in huggies,
You were generally immobile,
A life of stairlifts and golf buggies.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a sandal in the bin,
Discarded by a one legged monarchy,
When your hips caved in,
And I would have liked to have known you,
But I can't now 'cause you're dead,
But your legacy continues,
Because your family's inbred.

An absolutely disgusting swipe at the woman most of us knew as "Elizabeth, the Queen Mother," and whom Hitler knew as "The Most Dangerous Woman In Europe." This woman was still serving her country with grace and, yes, enthusiasm at age 100. What are you doing at your current age?

I didn't think it was that bad - I've seen a lot nastier things written. Perhaps not in the best taste but funny dare I say it, and well written!
