I wish that Joan of Arc
wouldn't hang around the park
pronouncing that she won't get burned again;
her armor's very shiny
and her message is divine
but I wish she'd take a day off now and then.

She said it clears your head
when you come back from the dead
with your sword as sharp as anything that cuts;
and to prove it she bisected
three young tourists from Utrecht
which rapidly displayed a lot of guts.

She says we need to raise a brand new army
and the flag of France so proudly she unfurled
and the people that she hated will be neatly bifurcated
and the British will no longer rule the world!

She says it was her mistake
to let them burn her at the stake
and she learned her lesson back there in the flames;
so she's going to kill the Queen
and then she'll rescue Old Orleans
and it's really hard to hang around with saints;

I think I ought to tell her
that the English left in failure
and they don't go back to France except on hols;
but I saw her vivisect
a man who wanted to correct her
and the playground soon resembled Grand Guignol.

She says we need to raise a brand new army
and she marched us round until we couldn't stand;
she said the nation she abhors will soon be writhing on the floor
and the British will no longer rule her land!

And she's waiting for the Dauphin
who will come across the ocean
and knows that God agrees with her complaints;
so I'm hoping she'll ignore
my English accent in her war,
cause it's really hard to hang around with saints;

She says we need to raise a brand new army
and the flag of France so proudly she unfurled
and the people that she hated will be neatly bifurcated
and the British will no longer rule,
the British will no longer rule,
the British will no longer rule the world!
