THE ENGLISH BLUES (©Words and music by Paul F. Cowlan)
Nothing dates faster than topical references, but a dig at the Iron Lady was too good to miss. God save the Queen. Uhmm, uhmm, uhmm.
Lord God I woke up this morning,
I could not find my contact lenses.
Yes Lord, I certainly did wake up this morning,
but I could not find my contact lenses.
This is extremely irritating because I cant see a thing when Im not wearing them,
and I keep bumping into things and falling over.
Im going down to the railway station to see if they are on strike again.
Yes Lord, Im going down to the railway station to see if they are on strike again.
(For the fourth time this week I think it is.)
I would go by bus, but unfortunately the busdrivers are already on strike.
Aha, aha, aha. Mmmhm. Mmmhm. Mmmhm.
Yes, yes, yes. Lord God have mercy.
Thank you very much indeed thats frightfully decent of you.
Im going down to London, Im going to feed my auntys cat.
(Hes a ginger cat, and his name is Tiddles.)
Im going down to London, Lord, Im going to feed my auntys cat.
(Hes rather fat, but he is very friendly.)
Because if somebody doesnt feed him he could die,
and nobody would want that.
Im in love with Mrs Thatcher, and I have other perversions too.
Yes, Im in love with Mrs Thatcher,
and I have other indescribably bizarre perversions too.
For example Im also in love with the Queen.
Shes not so pretty but shes a lot more important,
so God save the Queen!
