Lyrics by ©R Surgeoner

Join us in Union, lift our hearts to our Queen

To celebrate your reign and the great Queen you’ve been

Thank You your majesty, and your Royal family

For supporting your people creating community


You've come to our Games, throughout your reign

Cut ribbons with scissors saluted our flame

The torch in our lives that lights the way

Uplifting our spirits each and every day


The love that you’ve shown us, has sure helped us grow

You’ve shown us goodwill through 70 years on the throne

Romantic your image, you’ve guided us with strength

Acknowledged our efforts and led us through Faith


Remembering the many, worn Poppies for the fallen

Brought pride to our Nation in all that you’ve given

You’ve shown us all love and shared your children

Brought happiness and joy, inspiration, and freedom


God save our gracious Queen - Long live our noble Queen

God save our…..


Queen of our nation it’s an affirmation

A party for your peoples and all your relations

Bringing us together in a huge celebration

Let’s all sing and clap in our jubilation


Queen of our nation, a platinum jubilee

Princes and princesses, horses, and corgis

You’ve given to us all for everyone to see

You are the best Queen this country’s ever seen



Paralympic sport Stoke Mandeville and Aylesbury

From our doctors and our teachers and from all the military

We thank you for your service and all the love we’ve seen

We thank you from our hearts for being the bestest ever Queen


sing chorus twice, instrumental break, sing twice again and repeat last line to crescendo
