The upper classes have their own kind of shindigs, quite different from us scruffy lot, but what would happen if we gatecrashed??!


Vs 1
Do conditions not apply
Who am I to ask you why
Did I dot my T or cross my I
When I signed the register?

Invited to the party
I hope I don’t get farty
Get drunk and act all tarty
With the butler

Vs 2
When your in your mansion
Do you ever fashion
A crime of heated passion
Or do you just play cards?

Will you start to smolder
At my ruffled shoulder
My cigarette holder
Do you like a bit of rough?

Oh why, was I born so high?
Oh, why (why, why) can I not try
Ascot, Sotheby’s, Buckingham Palace Parties
The Ritz Harrods, water polo
French cuisine or flying solo?!

Vs 3
How do you fancy,
Meeting in the pantry
Or perhaps the chantry
But what would the vicar say?

I could try to fit in
Grow myself a double chin
Laugh with you and drink your gin
But what would my conscience say?
