BOY OH BOY OH BOY! REALLY WONDERFUL.


Catherine and William 

Most everyone is filled with joy

About a certain baby boy;

Of course, some anti-Royalists

May fume and rant and shake their fists,

But they are of no consequence

Beside those thrilled at a new Prince!

The Duke and Duchess, on this night

Seem to be doing all that’s right

To bond with their new baby child

And keep the press from going wild;

So from a ‘Colony’ afar –

Fal la la la-la la la – 

Here’s a health unto His Majesty,

The some-time-future King to be!

(Addendum):

HERE’S A HEALTH
By Thomas Jordan (1613—1685)

Here’s a health unto his Majesty,
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la ;
Confusion to his enemies,
With a fal-la-la-la-la-la-la.
And he that will not drink his health,
I wish him neither wit nor wealth
Nor yet a rope to hang himself,
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la –
With a f al-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!

    I checked Sky News all day yesterday! Excellent news, and my thoughts were also for Diana.
    I’m a loyal royalist for all the countries that still have (real) Royal families.

      I was brought up as a royalist with a family which treasured things like performing for them (mother) photographing them for a painting (father) or chatting to them on a railway platform (aunts).
