Diamond Jubilee Verse
Well here we are again
another Royal celebration
This time it's a Diamond Jubilee
and an extra Bank holiday for the nation.
Congratulations to Her Majesty
for 60 years as our Queen
Only ever done by Queen Victoria
A Royal feat rarely seen.
If I knew someone who was sharing the day
I have to pass comment if it were due
Having your day on a special bank holiday
Lucky, Lucky you!
To mark 60 years of Queen Elizabeth's reign, special Diamond Jubilee celebrations will take place over a "four day" weekend between Saturday 2nd June and Tuesday 5th June 2012.
A Diamond Jubilee has only ever been celebrated in the UK once before - Queen Victoria, who reigned for more than 60 years, celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
Queen Elizabeth came to the throne on 6th February 1952 and her coronation took place on 2nd June 1953.

We're having a party in the street.
We want you all to be involved
A British Bank Holiday Treat.
We'll raise a glass to Her Majesty,
to her health we will toast.
To see if in ten years time
70 years we could boast.
In true British style
We celebrate this day
The Queens Diamond Jubilee
with a extra bank holiday.
We're grateful to have a long weekend
It's always a real treat
So we're going to throw a party
Out there, in the street.
Get out the bunting
Dress all in Red, White and Blue
Come out and celebrate with us
and be proud to be British too.
I'm not the biggest royalist
I may not be the Queens biggest fan.
But I love our British history
spanning back to when records began.
Our history is what makes it great
of that there's no mistaking.
This will go down in the record books
as it's history in the making!
Congratulations to Her Majesty
A Diamond Jubilee is no mean feat.
One is going to celebrate
with a party in the street.
We'll roll out the barrels
and dance to kness up Mother Brown.
In celebration of her Diamond Jubilee
we intend to paint the town.
Happy Birthday you lucky thing.
You're sure to have a great day.
You can have all your loved ones around you
and no one needs to take holiday!
We wish you a very Happy Birthday.
Your bound to have a great day.
Your lucky as you can have the day off
without having to book holiday!
You get to have the day off
when you would normally be at work.
Thank's to Her Majesty the Queen
You get an extra Birthday Perk!

My personal message to Her Majesty
Congratulations and the best of wishes
are sincerely sent to the Queen
for reaching her Diamond Anniversary,
only once before seen.
There have certainly been some changes
in those 60 years at the helm
and we really mustn’t forget that she’s
also The Head of State for 16 realms.
There are some great and fantastic facts
for us to think about
She works so hard for us all
of that there is no doubt.
She’s the fortieth monarch to have reigned,
Twelve Prime Ministers she has known,
Six Popes and Archbishops have served
since Her Majesty’s been on the throne.
Around 175,000 telegrams have been sent
to those turning 100 years
and around 540,000 telegrams to couples
celebrating 60 married years.
261 official overseas trips
Far more than any other,
and in places never reached before
like Korea, China and Russia.
All those Christmas Broadcasts,
Remembrance days and services
Banquets, lunches, functions
and Royal Variety performances.
I dread to think how many speeches
have been written and given.
My favourite is the Golden Wedding speech
delivered in November ‘97.
I love how you complimented, Prince Philip
As your strength and as your stay,
and how a debt, greater that he would ever claim,
should surely come his way.
Congratulations to you and the best of wishes
60 years is no mean feat!
Many of us will be celebrating your achievement
with a party in the street!
So thanks for your hard work and duty,
Without you and your family,
we wouldn’t be the Great Britain we are-
on that, we can all agree.
