I’ve always thought Roundheads
Dull, unfunny folk,
But the Cavaliers Clothing
Was a bit of a joke.
Flamboyant feathers
On splendid slouch hats,
Fabulous jackets,
And lacy cravats.
The Roundheads, how boring,
On the other hand,
Shaved all their hair off,
Had clothes that were bland.
Oliver Cromwell,
A miserable soul,
Couldn’t bear the light-hearted,
Or heaven forfend, droll,
So he set about passing
All manner of law,
That would drag us all down
In a miserable maw.
Charles proved quite frivolous,
So he lost his head,
And eventually we got
Charles II instead!
