Chopped 'em and hacked, but what made their red blood curl: bad enough being beaten - but beaten by a girl?
Fashion topped my list of vices, bathed in asses' milk and spices, then I dressed like goddess Isis - long black hair in ringlets nicest
Never had a limp, always walked my full height, never had a hump and my arm was alright, never took the crown with illegal power, never killed my nephews - the princes in the tower
The notorious gang of Gregory liked my style and dedication, they signed me up and gave me a real robber's education
So I joined HMS Beagle, watched the eagle and the seagull, we studied rocks and plants, flowers, trees, and bees, and ants
The protestants were saying that my ruling made them sick, 'Cause when it came to praying, my tastes were Catholic
I splashed my cash to all the papal cardinals in hope That they'd be bought, They were in short And I became the Pope
I celebrated Stirling Bridge - another Scottish win, by decorating my sword with the English General's skin

'Seen better days' (That's one of his) Ah, 'Salad days' (He is the biz) 'All the world's a stage' They call me Billy Whizz
I had just ten years on the throne, do you remember that? No, all you remember is I was really fat
Oh, I loved to sail the ocean, with my flag that inspired emotion. With its smiling pile of skull and bones, smashing hearts with a violent stabbing motion
Spaniels I adored, named after me too - like me they were fun with a natty hairdo
The love of a lifetime for me. She gave me a son, little Prince Ed. Then poor old Jane went and dropped dead.
When Crimean War broke out, Me apply for Florence's crew, She turn me down because me black, Yep, weird I know but true
The rocks they are my warriors, I then used to boast. And that little lie helped us win wars, but violence helped the most
