    The Kinks performing We Are the Village Green Preservation Society, 1973:

    A thing of beauty.

    The Kinks – The Village Green Preservation Society

    We are the Village Green Preservation Society.
    God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety.
    We are the Desperate Dan Apreciation Society.
    God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties.

    Preserving the old ways from being abused.
    Protecting the new ways, for me and for you.
    What more can we do?

    We are the Draught Beer Preservation Society.
    God save Mrs. Mopp and good old Mother Riley.
    We are the Custard Pie Appreciation Consortium.
    God save the George Cross, and all those who were awarded them.

    We are the Sherlock Holmes English-speaking Vernacular.
    God save Fu Manchu, Moriarty and Dracula.
    We are the Office Block Persecution Affinity.
    God save little shops, china cups, and virginity.
    We are the Skyscraper Condemnation Affiliates.
    God save Tudor houses, antique tables, and billiards.

    Preserving the old ways from being abused.
    Protecting the new ways, for me and for you.
    What more can we do?

    God save the village green!

      And when I lie on my pillow at night
      I dream I can fight like David Watts
      Lead the school team to victory
      take my exams and pass the lot!
