God Save the Queen's Speech

lyrics

There's a woman in a crown talking on the telly
A woman in a crown talking 'bout austerity
A woman in a crown, some sorta ceremony
A woman in a crown, and she's tellin' me

That she lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
She lives a life of luxury that you might call obscene
She lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
A lifetime on benefits, God Save The Queen

There's a woman on the telly in a million pound hat
She's talking on the telly 'bout a welfare cap
Not sure the civil list's included in that
And she can still afford to buy a Right To Buy flat

Though she lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
She lives a life of luxury that you might call obscene
She lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
A lifetime on benefits, God Save The Queen

There's a woman on the telly talkin' 'bout the Tories 
A woman on the telly tellin' aspiration stories
She waves a royal finger to show Europe where the door is
While we pay for her family and food for her corgis

'Cos she lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
She lives a life of luxury that you might call obscene
She lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
A lifetime on benefits, God Save The Queen

The woman in the crown don't like you gettin' high
The woman in the crown don't like your human rights
The woman in the crown kissed your privacy goodbye
The woman in the crown don't like your right to strike

And she lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
She lives a life of luxury that you might call obscene
She lives in the biggest council house I've ever seen
A lifetime on benefits, God Save The Queen
