"Village Green" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
We are the Village Green Preservation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties

Preserving the old ways from being abused
Protecting the new ways, for me and for you
What more can we do?

We are the Draught Beer Preservation Society
God save Mrs. Mopp and good old Mother Riley
We are the Custard Pie Appreciation Consortium
God save the George Cross, and all those who were awarded them

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

We are the Sherlock Holmes English-speaking Vernacular
God save Fu Manchu, Moriarty and Dracula
We are the Office Block Persecution Affinity
God save little shops, china cups, and virginity
We are the Skyscraper Condemnation Affiliates
God save Tudor houses, antique tables, and billiards

Preserving the old ways from being abused
Protecting the new ways, for me and for you
What more can we do?

We are the Village Green Preservation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties

We are the Village Green Preservation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety

God save the Village Green!

    General CommentAgain, Ray is a romantic. Enjoy the simple life and all of the joys it brings. Everything is being commercialized. This is one of my favorites.

    General CommentI saw him perform this song live... it was absoultly beautiful. He's recalling the days of his youth. He's not sad about it though, he's not longing for it. He just wants to go back and remember it for a little while... I think its very sweet.

    General CommentAh, such a lovely song. I love that harpsichord-ishness in it :)
    I think that it's a pretty romantic song, really.
