(By the way, when it says George III in brackets, he only speaks that line, then it switches back to George IV)

I'm George IV, the regent king
Which means I was just standing in
Acting king because my dad
George III had gone barking mad
(George III) Banana!

Great palaces I did design
Buckingham was one of mine
Art and fashion I so rated
(George III) And wives?
That's more complicated...

Actresses and duchesses
The great loves of my life!
I loved more girls than I ate pies
But I couldn't stand my wife...

(George III) He couldn't stand his wife!
Go away

I only married Queen Caroline
When my debts began to climb
'Cause if I agreed to tie the knot
(George III) I said I'd pay off the lot!

But the wedding plans were full of strife
'Cause I already had a wife
(George III) A divorced Catholic?!
Dad did sigh, but the mad old goat just wouldn't die...

(George III) Still here! Oh, spoke to soon...

At last, I can go solo!

As true king my reign began
Though I was now older than your nan
And as the ruler of our nation
I banned my wife from my coronation

And knowing now that I did hate her
She promptly died just three weeks later
But all the pies that I got through
Meant ten years later, I died too!

(George III) Hello! Have we met? I'm a kangaroo!

Actresses and duchesses
The great loves of my life!
I loved more girls than I ate pies
But I couldn't stand my wife...

I had just ten years on the throne
Do you remember that?
No, all that you remember is...
I was really fat...
