I was born same as my Carol,
In the year our beloved sovereign.
Was crowned Queen, there was no one
Who loved her people on this septic isle.
Including all her common wealth more.

She served her country with pride,
Dignity, Diligence and courage.
As no other sovereign had before.

Over seventy years later she passed away,
The sovereignty had lost their Queen.
In the year of her platinum jubilee,
Know she looks down on all of us.
In heaven she reigns supreme.

Even though here on earth,
She was like a mother to us all.
She can rest know,
Her life of servitude is done.

Her life of rest with her husband,
In a place that we call heaven.
Has only just begun,
Even though we grieve for our Queen.
We thank her for giving us her son,
King Charles the third.
Even though in our hearts,
She will forever be our Queen.
There's only two things for me to say,
As I raise a glass to her,
Goodbye my Queen
May you rest in peace;
And God save our king.
Queen Elizabeth II
