The Queen

(©2003 R. Rothschild)

for Brenna

Today’s a very special day
when all the people of the land
celebrate the birthday of their Queen.
They gather cherries, figs, and pears,
with heads held high they bear them there,
the roads all lined with yellow roses.

Chorus:
Oh, the Queen, the Queen, you are the Queen,
the Queen, the Queen.
All the leaves are green, you are the Queen,
the Queen, the Queen.

And soon the summer will be gone,
fading now into the song,
and I must go across the sea.
But let the water stand between,
it cannot hide what we have seen,
you are still sovereign to me.

Chorus
