A tribute from Oz, the colonies, to the royal family. Get ya giggles, we did donate a salt water crocodile to the heir to the British throne!

One night, by the light of the moon, A little crocodile egg hatched, doom, This will make you all wince, Oz gave him to a little rich prince, Yes, George's pal for a while, A very hungry crocodile, Growing up together, but speed dial, This one did make us smile, It was a very, very, hungry crocodile, On Monday, it ate a corgi, Prince George thought it was funny, On Tuesday, he ate old Prince Phil, Prince George thought he was an old dill, On Wednesday, he ate the queen, Biggest melodrama you've ever seen, On Thursday, he ate Camilla, Prince George thought she was Godzilla. This was a very hungry crocodile, On Friday, he ate all the corgis, with a smile, On Saturday, he ate Prince George, tee hee, On Sunday, he ate the rest of the nursery, Then he ate the whole royal family, So he wasn't hungry any more, you see, That is how Oz got rid of the monarchy, A feral pet from the 'colonies', Comes from our convict ancestry, Thumbing our noses at authority, We do have republican tendencies...... This is how to get rid of the monarchy, Ha, is it a true story? Byeeeeee!
