VICTORIA- The Kinks

G   D G C G D G

      D             G

Long ago life was clean
         C         G

Sex was bad and obscene
         D            G

And the rich were so mean
         D             G

Stately homes for the Lords
          C              G

Croquet lawns, village greens
      D           G

Victoria was my queen



    

CHORUS:
  G    D   Em   Bm        D     G

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria

I was born, lucky me
In a land that I love
Though I am poor, I am free
When I grow I shall fight
For this land I shall die
Let her sun never set ...CHORUS TWICE

BRIDGE:
Em                  D

Land of hope and gloria
  D            C

Land of my Victoria
Em                 D

Land of hope and gloria
  D            C

Land of my Victoria
     D      G

Victoria, toria

SOLO (OVER VERSE CHORDS)
CHORUS (hold the first two "Victoria"s longer)

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 ...CHORUS
  G    D   Em  Bm     D             G

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria---------

Long ago life was clean
Sex was bad and obscene
And the rich were so mean
Stately homes for the Lords
Croquet lawns, village greens
Victoria was my queen
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria.

I was born, lucky me
In a land that I love
Though I am poor, I am free
When I grow I shall fight
For this land I shall die
Let her sun never set
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria.

Land of hope and gloria
Land of my Victoria
Land of hope and gloria
Land of my Victoria.
Victoria, 'toria
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria.

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

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, 'toria
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria.
