Victoria

Ray Davies, released on Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), © Hill & Range Songs BMI 1969

.

Long ago life was clean

Sex was bad and obscene

And the rich were so mean

Stately homes for the Lords

Croquet lawns, village greens

Victoria was my queen

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria

.

I was born, lucky me

In a land that I love

Though I am poor, I am free

When I grow I shall fight

For this land I shall die

Let her sun never set

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, toria

.

Land of hope and gloria

Land of my Victoria

Land of hope and gloria

Land of my Victoria

Victoria, 'toria

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria

.

Canada to India

Australia to Cornwall

Singapore to Hong Kong

From the West to the East

From the rich to the poor

Victoria loved them all

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria

.
