Heard in a pub today. To the tune of "She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain":

You can stick your royal wedding up your arse (x2)
You can stick your royal wedding (x2)
You can stick your royal wedding up your arse.

An observation Jack - you really do need to frequent a better class of boozer. The offering is so original and must have taken whoever simply ages to come up with - obviously a football supporter.

Exactly what cultural and traditional values were lost and where to Great Britain on the 19th of May GUEST Bill from Accrington.

It is a very clever piece of meta-songwriting. The message is "how much creative effort is this crapfest worth?"

Our cultural values are those of Shakespeare, Dickens, Turner, Elgar, Newton, Darwin. And yes, of Lennon, MacCartney, Hockney and Hawking. What on earth does a royal wedding have to do with culture?

Thoughts of chairman Terribulus...

However, sane people acknowledge a couple got married and as we don’t know either of them and weren’t invited, it’s got bugger all to go with us and was a day of great joy for the millions who like that sort of thing.

Actually, I thought the music was very enjoyable. What's wrong with a bit of gospel song? And the young cellist was very talented.

Of course, we're paying for the security etc in our taxes but a majority of people seem to want to do this and support The Monarchy. They will also have to pay for things they might not like and the rest of us want.

Talk about polarised views: Marmite, Eurovision, football teams, and now yes, Royal Weddings.
I have never seen quite so many F, C and A expletives in one day as yesterday on my Facebook Timeline, coming from the Royal-haters, (perhaps I need to choose my friends more carefully) - while at least 40% of Royal Wedding posts were from people who loved it. I'm no prude but the overuse of these words does make me despair sometimes: rather than reinforcing the users' arguments, actually weakens them IMHO and lands them in the gutter.
Ok, I did watch the TV, enjoyed the music and pageantry. It was NOT an official state occasion, therefore NOT all paid for by the taxpayer, as some would have us believe. Some of the security would have been as Johnny suggests, but the Police also had 2 Cup Finals yesterday to look after at public expense.
if we didn't have a monarchy, what would the alternative be? May, Boris, or someone like Trump????

I heard a gorgeous song on the Royalty on Friday night, written by Vic Gammon, the singer told me
One of the memorably bits was how the British haven't had a British monarchy sing "Harold got it in the eye'
Would very much appreciatet the words if somebody has them

Probably the same guys who wrote the "Jeremy Corbyn" song. Tell them not to give up the day job.

THAT, unidentified Guest, is just another example of the totally tasteless and crassly unfunny tripe that is going around other social media at present. Stick your foul thoughts.

British\English culture won't die anymore the Hellenistic\Greek culture did. It's spread worldwide and adopted everywhere, especially in North America. As my father said, the English didn't bunch-up but spread out.

One thing for sure, nearly every wagon heading west had two volumes on board: a King James Bible and The Works of Shakespeare as sure as the Colt Peacemaker and a Winchester repeating rifle.

So, the gospel was spread across the ocean in English then across the continent to the western shore. I find it amazing. And just as the Britannica ruled the waves, America rules the road...

Jim,

The lyrics to Vic Gammon's 'Kings And Queens Of England' are in this thread:

thread.cfm?threadid=22673

You will also find Pete Coe singing it on YouTube.

thetwangman, I've just listened to that song on Youtube, sung by Pete Coe. Very funny and clever words. "Rule Britannia, Britannia waives the rules!"
He lists many Kings and each one's faults, but for James I his only accusation is, "He was a Scot..." Oh dear... :)
I'd shake anyone's hand unless they were a complete monster, but I refuse to bow/curtsy to anyone.

Thanks Twaangy - it brought the house down on Friday at our local Sean Nós night
Words here
Jim

THE KINGS AND QUEENS OF ENGLAND
Charles the Second had eleven bastard children and
George the Third went mad
Edward the Seventh they think was Jack the Ripper and
Richard the Third weren't as bad (as Shakespeare said he was)
Victoria lay back and thought of England
Charles the First lost his head
The best thing about the kings and queens of England is that
Most of them are dead

Singing Rule Britannia, Britannia waives the rules,
Kings, Queens, Knaves and Jacks and tyrants, cheats and fools

William the Third was a Protestant and Dutch man and
James the First was a Scot
George the First spoke nothing else but German
What a mixed up, interbred lot!
William the First was grasping Norman bastard
And not one word is a lie
There hasn't been an English king of England
Since Harold got one in the eye

She was a well-heeled, blue blood Cinderella
Him Prince Charming with big ears
But he had a thing going with the ugly sister.
So it ended all in tears
Arise now you ghosts of old Oliver Cromwell
Brave Harrison and Tom Paine
Rid our land of this monstrous carbuncle
Bring sunshine after the reign

Paperback, to your English in North America,
I would like to add one weighty musical composition:

Handel's Messiah.
If you east of the Atlantic only realized
how Handel's Messiah has been raised on a pedestal in North America.

There is a sort of unofficial propaganda,
and I was taught this in grade school,
that God sent Handel to England in order to compose The Messiah.
This presentation, complete with soundtrack
and a coordinated slideshow that went "DING!!" when it was time to change to the next slide,
was not a British product but a USA one, accents and all.

You have to head off to the university level, as a rule,
in order to be introduced to the fact that
England, in Handel's day, was mad for Italian opera,
and that the Saxon composer Handel went to England
because that's where the money was,
competing tooth and claw with the Italian composers ... in London.

Handel only went to London after spending some time learning the Italian style by writing cantatas for a coterie of gay would-be opera buffs in Rome (where opera itself was banned). Betcha the US documentary didn't cover that...

The Old West had it's share of opera houses...

though they rarely, if ever, saw an opera grace their stages.

The Centennial State saw 132 opera houses built in 68 towns between 1860 and 1920
+++++++++++++
I did watch, on YouTube, the drive from the church, home.

They should have cracked the whip and run those horses flat-out (in honor of his mother)
