"Victoria" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
It was bad, called obscene
And the rich were so mean
Stately homes for the Lords
Golden lawns, village green
Victoria was my queen

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria
I was born, lucky me
In the land that I love
Though I'm poor, I am free
When I go I shall fight
For this land I will die
Let her sun never set on

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria
Canada to India
Australia to Cornwall
Singapore to Hong Kong
From the West to the East
From the rich to the poor
Victoria loved them all

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria

    General CommentActually, it's not too bad. I'll give the Fall high marks for covering songs that'll be so brilliantly done I'd swear that song was an original. Like "Ghost in My House", a song by R. Dean Smith. And "Mr Pharmacist" which I thought was another Kinks cover, was really a song by '60s psychedelic/garage band, The Other Half.

    General CommentI never quite got why they changed the lyrics so that it's no longer saying that the Victorians thought sex was bad. Seems a bit strange to me.
