SIXTY YEARS STILL REIGNING
Now the Queen she said to Philip
That it seemed it were a while
Since she'd put on her stately robes
And strolled Westminster's aisle.
She'd heard the cheers of all the folk
Who had come out to see
And for those who couldn't get there
They'd put it on TV.
She'd ridden in a carriage
That shone like it were gold
But I think it were only plated
If the truth be told.
She'd worn a heavy royal crown
With gems of every hue
That near gave her a headache
Way back in fifty-two.
She said she'd keep on reigning
For as long as she could breathe
And if we didn't like it
We could pack our bags and leave.
But we all loved our Lizzie
And stayed put where we were
And if it weren't for all the rain
I'm sure we'd still be there.
Now being a queen's not easy
Good times come and go
And she's had her share of troubles
Some grief and lots of woe.
The colonies went feral
And wanted to be free
Our Liz graciously conceded
And gave them liberty.
Then there were deaths and taxes
And wars to fight as well
Some troubles with the children
Sometimes it seemed like Hell.
But our Liz she rose above it all
She never gave up hope
And still she kept on reigning
She even met the Pope.
And now full sixty years has passed
And quite a lot has changed
For one thing, TV's colour
And the PMs are deranged.
She's had lots of celebrations
But she likes this one the best
Cause diamonds are a girl's best friend
When they're put to the test.
