Lyrics

Oh the veins of her Majesty the Queen
They're so regal and serene
How I'd love to say I'd been
Down the veins of her Majesty the Queen
Tunnel down their beauteous sheen
And tell everything I'd seen
O the Queen (Oh yes the Queen)
And her cellar full of dogs (And all her dogs)
Wonder has she any frogs?  (Oh, has she frogs,)
Does she ever chop up logs? (or chop up logs?)
Woah oh no (Oh, no. Oh, no)
No, I don't suppose she does (I don't suppose she does)
It would all be too much fuss
Anyway, she'd have a

Private detective with her
Private detective with her

Just making sure no one ever had a go
At her Majesty the Queen
Someone no one really knows
You might think you know your friends  (Oh, you might think you know your friends)
Even when they're on a screen
Yeah, but nobody pretends  (but nobody pretends)
That they really know the Queen  (they really know the Queen)
So I'd love to say I'd been
Somewhere deep inside the veins of her Majesty the Queen
