Prince Charles - (Christine Lavin)

    I never really knew him, but I was hoping that we might meet
    I knew I'd find him very witty. I hoped he'd find me sweet
    but somebody beat me to him, ruined all my plans
    some little conniving wench went and stole my man

    Oh Charles, Prince Charles.
    can you hear my heart break
    can you hear me telling you
    marrying her is a big mistake
    Oh Charles, Prince Charles
    when you proposed she was just 19
    don't you think that's a little young to be making her
    England's future queen?

    Yes I know she's pretty. Yes I know she's rich
    but I read in the National Enquirer Lady Diana is a...
    which I was very shocked to read, but hey, it must be true
    'cause there hasn't been anything on TV about her wanting to sue

    Woah-woah Charles, Prince Charles
    you are making a bad mistake
    in the bosoms of girls allover the world
    hearts keep going break, break, break
    Oh Charles, Prince Charles
    she's not even 23 years old yet
    and think of all the eligible women in the world
    that you still haven't met

    Oh, maybe you got panicky
    thinking you were losing your looks
    confidentially, Chuck, you got no looks to lose
    or maybe you're the kind of cad
    who likes to drive us women mad
    knowing now we all have the
    "i'm never gonna get to be
    the future queen of England" blues

    Charles, Prince Charles
    do you have a last name?
    I was going to ask you that on our first date
    forget it, things have changed
    Oh Charles, Prince Charles
    any girl looks good when she's 19
    but think about her 30 years from now
    when she's an old and ugly queen
    take a look at your mother, boy,
    and you'll know what I mean
