Ria’s stayed at home these years

And worked there, uncomplaining;

She says her father needs her, so

She’s opted for remaining


It’s funny how the years go by,

And how old things get wearing:

It strikes her now, from time to time,

She’s doing all the caring


So maybe she will leave her work

Of service to the throne,

And find some satisfaction in

A real life of

Her own
