The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »

It was bad, called obscene 
And the rich were so mean 
Stately homes for the Lords 
Golden lawns, village green
Victoria was my queen 

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria 
I was born, lucky me 
In the land that I love 
Though I'm poor, I am free 
When I go I shall fight 
For this land I will die 
Let her sun never set on 

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria 
Canada to India 
Australia to Cornwall 
Singapore to Hong Kong 
From the West to the East 
From the rich to the poor 
Victoria loved them all 

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria
