In Service to the Queen

It was once that I was handsome
It was once when I was young
I was hard and fast and seventeen
In service to the Queen
I lost my hand to the cannons
I lost my eye to the sword
And I’m sorry for the things I’ve seen
In service to the Queen

c:
In service to the Queen- before
In service to the Queen- no more!
And I swear my revenge
On her ships and her men
In service to the Queen

My children were lost in the battle
My wife was lost in the war
And all of that now is a sad little dream
in service to the Queen
And my body is old and it’s broken
And my mind is a horror of loss
And everything seems kind of small and obscene
in Service to the Queen

c.c.

For I thought I did her bidding
And I faithful served her well
When she asked for my head it was unforeseen
In service to the Queen
For I’ve been betrayed and cast away
I thought she had a heart
But she’s just the façade on a killing machine
In service to the Queen

GUITARRR
c.c.

And I never will go home now
For I’m truly lost at sea
And all that awaits is that old guillotine
In service to the Queen
But she looked so perfect and pretty
But she’s false and she’s empty and cold
And she’s hollow and worthless; a mere figurine
In service to the Queen

c.c.c.
