She sits so regally
Her head held high
Her shoulders erect
Her back straight
She sits so regally
With her expensive satin gown
With her fare and pale skin
With her diamonds and rubies
She sits so regally
She looks so clean
She looks so pure
She looks so fragile
She sits so regally
No one would ever know
No one would ever see
No one would ever suspect
She sits so regally
This noble lady dirtied herself
This noble lady laid with the help
This noble lady slept with me
She sits so regally…
