Ugly Stamps (Song Lyrics version 2.0)

While sending a gift abroad from Canada,
I came face to faces with a little dilemma.
All the stamps I had bore a pic of the Queen,
More Queen Lizzie Twos than I had ever seen!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! I couldn’t bear all those ugly royal stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! They gave me nasty nightmares!

All of those Queens were staring back at me,
Bugaboo-eyed and as wrinkled as could be.
Geriatric clones of the royal kind,
They were horrid enough to make me wanna go blind!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! I couldn’t bear all those ugly royal stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! They gave me nasty nightmares!

Phase out those stamps, I begged of Canada Post,
Make stamps that look like art instead of British ghosts!
Those Queenie stamps scared the shit out of me!
They left me scared shitless as anyone could be!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! I couldn’t bear all those ugly royal stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! They gave me nasty nightmares!

But Canada Post, much to my chagrin,
Zoomed in on Liz and showed more wrinkled skin.
Their Photoshop skills couldn’t hide everything,
I hope it will improve by when Prince Charlie is King!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! I cannot bear Charlie’s ultra-wrinkled stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! The thought of nastier nightmares!

Ah- aaah! Ah- AHHH!! AH- AHHH!!!
