THE QUEEN IS DEAD (RANK) Lyrics

Artist: The Smiths
Album: RANK

HELLO !
Farewell to these marshes
Hemmed in like a boar between arches
Her very Lowness with a head in a sling
I'm truly sorry - it sounds like a wonderful thing


I said Charles, don't you ever craze
To appear on the front of the Daily Mail
Blessed in your Mother's bridal veil ?
Oh ...
And so, I checked all the registered historical facts
I was shocked into shame to discover
I am the 18th pale descendant
Of some old queen or other


Oh, has the world changed, or have I changed ?
Oh has the world changed, or have I changed ?


Some 9-year old tough who peddles drugs
I swear to God
I never even knew what drugs were
So, I broke into the palace
With a sponge and a rusty spanner
She said : "I know you, and you cannot sing"
I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"


We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
And talk about precious things
But when you're tied to your Mother's apron
No-one talk about ...


Past the Pub who breaks your body
And the church who'll snatch your money
The Queen is dead, boys
And it's so lonely on a limb
Past the Pub who wrecks your body
And the church - all they want is your money
The Queen is dead, boys
You can trust me, boys


Life is very long, when you're lonely
Life is very long, when you're lonely
