White Heart – King George Lyrics

In times of old there was a king who
Had his way
And we were told the ways in which
We were to pray
A freer land was a dream across the sea
So we set sail in pursuit of our beliefs
We the people longed to know
A place where faith could grow
Everyone could take a stand
That’s why we fought to build this land
King George – so glad we got away
King George – the tyrant’s in his grave
But King George – is your shadow here today
The tide has turned, a different wave
Upon this shore
Now we’re so free, but tell me what’s
Our freedom for
If we say His name, if our message
Gets too strong
The radio will never play this song
The right is there to make a choice
We all can speak with our own voice
We can say – but we don’t dare
And all our schools don’t have a prayer
King George – we thought we got away
King George – are you laughing in your grave
King George – it hasn’t really changed
King George – is your shadow here to stay

Horrible Histories – The 4 Georges: Born 2 Rule lyrics

George I:
I took the throne of England
Just ’cause I was protestant
A German prince whose English stank,
King George number one

George II:
I like to argue, now that’s clear
Especially with my father here
And when he died of diarrhoea
I fought with my son

George III:
I broke records with my sixty year reign

George VI:
And I broke the scales with my giant frame

all:
Born to rule over you
King George four, three, one and two
You had to do what we told you to
Just because our blood was blue

George I:
I was a hunk, girls adored me
Ladies all swooned before me
They would do anything for me
Or I’d have their husbands killed

George II:
Had a war with Prince Charles Bonnie

George III:
Everyone said that I was f-f-funny

George IV:
I spent everyone’s money

All:
Our subjects were not thrilled

George I:
I was the sad one,

George II:
I was the bad one

George III
I was the mad one,

George IV:
and I was the fat one

All:
We were born to rule over you
Georges one, three, four and two
England’s kings, though we were German too
Him, then him, then me, then you

(We were born)Born to rule over you(born 2 rule)

George I:
Gorged on fruit then I died on the loo

ALL:
People hated us, and we hated them too
Born to rule over you

Born to rule over you

George III:
Me I was as batty as a bonkers kangaroo

George IV:
Me I would have been more at home in a zoo
And now, now our song is through.

Yeah…

Georges

George III:
Banana
