A noble and historic name to share

With Kingsley, Darwin, Dickens, Charles de Gaulle

The great and good upon the honour roll

For purity of soul or exploit rare


The Bonnie Prince, pretender to the throne

Born to be Charles the Third, across the sea,

Might have been crowned, historians agree

And witnessed thus upon the stone of Scone


Neither should the Charlies be forgotten

On stage and screen, they kept us all awake

Chaplin and Chester, Griffith, George and Drake

Some really good, some fair, some rather rotten


For Charles LX, a new decade appears

Here’s to the next half century of years.
