Elizabeth Windsor

Amen, we say, God bless you, ma’am

Reigning on the throne 70 a yarn

Serving steadfast and steady, and so calm

Our queen has made the record book

All eyes to her this day will look

Celebrate our world-class monarch

Head of the Commonwealth lands

Sovereign of the Garter, and

Supreme Governor of the Church of England

750 holiday cards issued every year

1,500 puddings to employees far and near

Philanthropic activity beyond compare

Her first corgi was called Susan by name

A lover of horses and the equine game

And owns unmarked mute swans on the Thames

Her Royal Highness and Majesty

Is also a lover of photography

And taking pictures of her family

To Scottish dancing she is partial

Hosting balls at Balmoral Castle

And Highland cuisine as traditional

Christmas message broadcast on the day

Telegram message on your 100th birthday

And media message honouring citizens – hooray!

Serving steadfast and steady, and so calm

Reigning on the throne 70 a yarn

Amen, we say, God bless you, ma’am!
