The Village Green Preservation Society

Ray Davies, released on The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, © Noma Music, Inc./Hi-Count Music, Inc. BMI 1968

.

We are the Village Green Preservation Society

God save Donald Duck, Vaudeville and Variety

We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society

God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties

Preserving the old ways from being abused

Protecting the new ways for me and for you

What more can we do

We are the Draught Beer Preservation Society

God save Mrs. Mopp and good Old Mother Riley

We are the Custard Pie Appreciation Consortium

God save the George Cross and all those who were awarded them

We are the Sherlock Holmes English Speaking Vernacular

Hell take Fu Manchu, Moriarty and Dracula

We are the Office Block Persecution Affinity

God save little shops, china cups and virginity

We are the Skyscraper Condemnation Affiliate

God save tudor houses, antique tables and billiards

Preserving the old ways from being abused

Protecting the new ways for me and for you

What more can we do

God save the Village Green.
