God Save the Queen (from Covid 19)

In about an hour, the Queen will address the nation and the commonwealth.

I’ve never been a huge fan of the National Anthem as it’s a bit one-note and all the gracious, noble, long live stuff feels a bit fusty and out of touch. Instead, I prefer to play the Sex Pistols version right before the Queen is due to make any broadcasts. And as I was just playing it, some alternative lyrics came to mind that I think are more fitting to our current circumstance. And then it turned into more of an ode to our Queen’s continued good health. Because the alternative is too ghastly.

God Save the Queen (from Covid 19)

God Save the Queen
From Covid 19
You’re Nearly 94
Please Stay the Fuck Indoors

Just a suggestion, Ma’am.

God Save the Queen
Self-Quarantined
You can talk to the Nation
But Stay in Isolation

Is the cameraman in PPE, Ma’am?

God Save the Queen
Keep your gloved hands clean
Use your corgis as a tissue
But please god stay in situ

It’s called shelter-in-palace, Ma’am

God Save the Queen
Until there’s a vaccine
No time to be complacent
You’re high risk when you’re ancient

Meant in a loving way, Ma’am

God Save the Queen
From Covid 19
You’re Nearly 94
Please Stay the Fuck Indoors

Thank you, Ma’am

  1. haha,yes. I should post it to the official royal family page! I think people here could do with a similar message judging by the number of people out and about downtown today. And yes, I was there too, adding to the problem, but we were combining a family dog walk with a look to see how busy Trader Joes was. Answer: very very long line. Home we went and shall stay.
