Favorite Song of the Day: God Save the Queen

You've probably seen the stories that the Queen of England visited with the head of the former colonies today (see Bush and Queen Celebrate Common Values from the New York Times, as one example). I guess most of the press is either too dim-witted or too steeped in the cult of celebrity to recognize the irony of an American President kowtowing to an English Royal. Then again, GW thinks he's above the law and has a divine right to rule so he's much closer to the old British monarchs than the people he's supposed to represent.

I for one like to honor the memory of our forefathers who gave the boot to monarchy and the tyranny it wrought around the world. There's no better way to do that than to dust off this oldie from those 70s bad-boy Brits, the Sex Pistols. Let's try to keep in mind what a parasitic little clan these Windsors actually are and give them a fittingly irreverent welcome.

God Save the Queen by Sex Pistols

God save the queen, her fascist regime
It made you a moron, a potential H bomb
God save the queen, she ain't no human being
There's no future in England's dreaming
Don't be told what you want
Don't be told what you need
There's no future, no future, no future for you
God save the queen, we mean it man
We love our queen, God saves
God save the queen 'cause tourists are money
And our figurehead is not what she seems
Oh God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh lord God have mercy
All crimes are paid
When there's no future how can there be sin
We're the flowers in the dustbin
We're the poison in your human machine
We're the future your future
God save the queen, we mean it man
We love our queen, God saves
God save the queen, we mean it man
There's no future in england's dreaming
No future, no future, no future for you
No future, no future, no future for me
No future, no future, no future for you
