Shakespears Sister – I Don’t Care

Walking through the rooms in my head
I came across your image,
You looked at me with that sweet smile and said
Something they won’t let me repeat
We hurt the ones we love the most
Its a subtle form of compilment

I don’t care if you talk about me
I don’t care if you write it out in stone
Whenever I fall I land on my feet
I don’t care, I just don’t care now
Mark the spot you hate with an X
Then shoot your bow and arrow
Do your worst, get it all off your chest
I’ll hold my breath and swallow
We hurt the ones we love the most
It’s a subtle form of discipline
I don’t care if you talk about me
I don’t care if you write it out in stone
Whenever I fall I land on my feet
I don’t care, I just don’t care now

I don’t care if you act like a queen
I don’t care if you take it out on me
I’ve got nine lives and I land on my feet
I don’t care, I just don’t care now

In a boreolic iceberg came Victoria
Queen Victoria sitting shocked upon on the rocking horse of a wave
Said to the laurette, this minx of course,
Is sharp as any linx and blacker, deepper
Than the drinks as hot as any hottentot
Without remorse, for the minx that she
And the drinks you can see are hot as any hotten tot
And not the goods for me,
Hot as any hotten tot
And not the goods for me
I don’t care if you talk about me
I don’t care if you write it out in stone
Whenever I fall I land on my feet
I don’t care, I just don’t care now
I don’t care if you act like a queen
I don’t care if you take it out on me
I’ve got nine lives and I land on my feet
I don’t care, I just don’t care now

Horrible Histories – Work, Terrible Work lyrics

In good old Queen Victoria’s day
Industrial revolution
Bosses said ‘Please, we need more employees’
We needed a solution

Who will climb our chimneys?
Who will power our grids?
Victorian families to desperately poor
They’ll let us employ their kids for

Work, terible work
From very young ages
Up chimneys to clean
Paid pitiful wages
Work, terrible work
Pins make you work faster
If we grow too big
Get sacked by the master!

Now you’re all in my employ
Cleaning in the factory
We’re not very strong
And the hours are long
This work is unsatisfactory!

There not to get caught in spokes
Or trap our hands in gages
To stop machines and get you out
Will cost you a week’s wages!

Work, terrible work
There’s no health and safety
So if we get hurt
They will just replace me
Work, terrible work

Now that I am short of cash
I have to pick pockets
Wallets from gentlemen
And lady’s lockets

Small enough to get away
Hardly ever caught
And if we are, we’re kids you see
To cry is what we’re taught

Work, terrible work
Dangerous and demeaning
No time to complain
Get back to your cleaning
Work, terrible work
Guess what we are dreaming
School, glorious school!
Wonderful school!
Marvellous school!
Wish we went to school!

Horrible Histories – Kings And Queens (Ruthless Rulers) Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m William the Conqueror
My enemies stood no chance
They call me the first English king
Although I come from France

[Verse 2]
1066, the Doomsday book
I gave to history
So fat on death my body burst
But enough about me

[Verse 3]
To help remember all your kings
I’ve come up with this song
A simple rhyming ditty
For you all to sing along

[Chorus]
Oh, William
(Bit short init? We need more kings. Who came next?)

[Verse 4]
William second, cheeks were red
Killed out hunting, so it’s said
I took over, Henry one
That’s my next eldest son

[Verse 5]
Then King Stephen, it’s true check it!
Hi, Henry two, killed Thomas Beckett
Richard Lionheart? That’s right!
Always spoiling for a fight

Oh King John, what a disaster
Rule restrained by Magna Carta

[Chorus]
William, William, Henry, Stephen
Henry, Richard, John, oi!
Time for my mate, King Henry eight
To take up this song

[Verse 6]
Henry three built the abbey
Ed one hated Scots
A red hot poker killed Ed two
That must have hurt him lots

[Verse 7]
Edward third was a chivalry nerd
Began the hundred years war
Then Richard two was king aged ten
Then Henry, yes one more

[Verse 8]
King Henry four, plots galore
Not least from Henry five, why?
Killed ten score at Agincourt
Then Henry six arrived

[Verse 9]
Edward four, Edward five
Richard the third, he’s bad
‘Cause he fought wars with Henry seventh
First Tudor and my dad

[Verse 10]
So Henry eight, I was great
Six wives, two were beheaded
Edward the sixth came next
But he died young and so my dreaded
Daughter Mary ruled, so scary
Then along came… me
I’m Liz the first, I had no kids
So Tudors RIP

[Chorus]
William, William, Henry, Stephen
Henry, Richard, John, oi!
Henry, Ed, Ed, Ed, Rich two
Then three more Henrys join our song
Edward, Edward, Rich the third
Henry, Henry, Ed again
Mary one, good Queen Bess
That’s me, time for more men

[Verse 11]
James six of Scotland next
As England’s James the first he led
Then Stuarts ruled, so Charles the first
The one who lost his head

[Verse 12]
No monarchy until came me
Charles two, I liked to party
King Jimmy two was scary, woooh
Then Mary was a smarty

[Verse 13]
She ruled with Bill, their shoes were filled
By sourpuss Queen Anne Gloria
And so from then, you were ruled by men
Till along came me Victoria

[Chorus]
William, William, Henry, Stephen
Henry, Richard, John, oi!
Henry, Ed, Ed, Ed, Rich two
Then three more Henrys join our song
Edward, Edward, Rich the third
Henry, Henry, Ed again
Mary one, good Queen Bess
Jimmy, Charles and Charles and then
Jim, Will, Mary, Anna Gloria
Still to come, it’s Queen Victoria

[Verse 14]
And so began the Hanover gang
George one and George two (grim)
Then George the third was quite absurd
Till I replaced old him

[Verse 15]
King George the fourth and known henceforth
As angry, fat and cross (hang on)
It’s true you beat Napoleon
But for mostly a dead loss (bang on)

[Verse 16]
Old William four was a sailor (ahoy)
It’s nearly the end of the story-a
As onto the scene comes the best loved queen
Hail to Queen Victoria

[Chorus]
William, William, Henry, Stephen
Henry, Richard, John, oi!
Henry, Ed, Ed, Ed, Rich two
Then three more Henrys join our song
Edward, Edward, Rich the third
Henry, Henry, Ed again
Mary one, good Queen Bess
Jimmy, Charles and Charles and then
Jim, Will, Mary, Anna Gloria
George, George, George, George
Will, Victoria
Victoria Victoria Victoria

(I ruled for sixty four years, you know.)

[Verse 17]
Ed seven, George five
Then Ed, George sixth
Liz two then reigned and how
And so our famous monarch song
Is brought right up to now, oh

[Chorus]
William, William, Henry, Stephen
Henry, Richard, John, oi!
Henry, Ed, Ed, Ed, Rich two
Then three more Henrys join our song
Edward, Edward, Rich the third
Henry, Henry, Ed again
Mary one, good Queen Bess
Jimmy, Charles and Charles and then
Jim, Will, Mary, Anna Gloria
George, George, George, George
Will, Victoria
Edward, George, Edward, George six
And Queen Liz two completes the mix

[Outro]
That’s all the English kings and queens
Since William first that there have been

Cats Musical – Old Deuteronomy lyrics

[Chorus]
CAST:
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

[Verse 1]
MUNKUSTRAP:
Old Deuteronomy’s lived a long time
He’s a cat who has lived many lives in succession
He was famous in Proverb and famous in rhyme
A long while before Queen Victoria’s accession

[Verse 2]
THE RUM TUM TUGGER:
Old Deuteronomy’s buried nine wives
And more I am tempted to say-ninety nine
And his numerous progeny prospers and thrives
And the villiage is pround of him in his decline

[Verse 3]
MUNKUSTRAP:
At the sight of that placid and grand phsiognomy
When he sits in the sun on the vicarage wall
The oldest habitant croaks

[Chorus]
MUNKUSTRAP AND THE RUM TUM TUGGER:
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

[Verse 4]
RUM TUM TUGGER
old Deuteronomy sits in the street
he sits on the high street on market day
the bullocks may bellow the sheep may bleet
but the dogs and the herdsman will turn them away

[Verse 5]
MUNKUSTRAP
the cars and the lorries run over the curb
and the villagers put up a notice “road closed”
so that nothing untoward may chance to disturb
Deuteronomy’s rest when he feels so disposed
The digestive repose of that feline’s gastronomy
Must never be broken, whatever befall:

[Chorus]
And the Oldest Inhabitant croaks: “Well, of all . . .
Things. . . Can it be . . . really! . . . yes!. . . no!. . .
Ho! hi!
Oh, my eye!
my mind may be wondering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

CAST (2X):
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess

I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

CAST:Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!

[Verse 6]
OLD DEUTERONOMY:
My legs may be tottery I must go slow
And be careful of Old Deuteronomy
