BUCKINGHAM PALACE
lyrics: A.A. Milne music: H. Fraser-Simon ?1926

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace
Christopher Robin went down with Alice

Alice is marrying one of the guard
"A soldier's life is terrible hard" (pause) says Alice

They're? / ?Alice / We saw a guard in a sentry box
"One of the sergeants is after their socks" -says Alice

?We looked for the King but he never came
"Well, God take care of him, all the same"?.

?.They've great big parties inside the grounds
"I wouldn't be King for a hundred pounds"?

?A face looked out, but it wasn't the King's
"He's much too busy a-signing things"?.

?"Do you think the King knows all about me?"
"Sure to, dear, but it's time for tea." - Says Alice

This is from the "Rise Up Singing" songbook. I should have known.
Sheepishly,
