At the Vice and Virtue Ministry
You'll earn your etiquette degree
Climb the ranks and join us here
Amongst the bourgeoisie
We all laugh endlessly
Extend our pinkies when we drink
And thumb our noses at the lower classes
In the penny seats

You'll move up socially
Fall in love with aristocracy
Wear the right clothes
Say the right things
Then you just might meet the Queen
We'll have our guests to tea
Play croquet on the greens
Wear out monocles
Quote articles
From Tennyson and Keats

Spend our days at gay soirees
And wave from royal parades
Spend our evenings
Counting earnings
Yachting down the Thames

At the Vice and Virtue Ministry
You'll earn your etiquette degree
Climb the ranks and join us here
Amongst the bourgeoisie
We all laugh endlessly
Extend our pinkies when we drink
And thumb our noses at the lower classes
In the penny seats

Spend our days at gay soirees
And wave from royal parades
Spend our evenings
Counting earnings
Yachting down the Thames
