"Dreaming Of The Queen" as written by Neil Tennant and Christopher Lowe....
Dreaming of the Queen
Visiting for tea
You and her and I
And Lady Di

The Queen said, "I'm aghast
Love never seems to last
However hard you try"
And Di replied

[Chorus]
That there are no more lovers left alive
No one has survived
So there are no more lovers left alive
And that's why love has died
Yes, it's true
Look, it's happened to me and you

Then carriages arrived
We stood and said goodbye
Diana dried her eyes
And looked surprised

For I was in the nude
The old Queen disapproved
But people laughed and asked
For autographs

[Chorus]

I woke up in a sweat
Desolate

[Chorus]

    General CommentThe song is about AIDS and its effect on the gay community (before retroviral drugs arrived), hence 'there were no more lovers left alive'. Waking up in a sweat was a symptom of AIDS.

    Obviously love never lasted in the Queen's family for other reasons. The song was on 'Very', released in 1994 (three years before Diana died in Paris) - obviously you won't hear it on the radio now which is a great shame because it is an excellent song.
