The Queen Gave Me A Medal

The Queen she gave me a medal, the one they call the P. Do.
It was bright shiny silver with a ribbon of white and blue.

The Captain pinned it on my chest for fifteen years of my time,
But my D.O. said that it was for years of undetected crime.

Along with it came a cheque for the sum of fifty pound,
They say that is for a deposit, on a house if one is found.

From now on I have to be careful and not get caught out,
because the Queen can take back her medal without any doubt.

But the money will be difficult, that’s spread wide and far,
In ever Pompey Public House, spent over every bar.

Because why go out and spend it on only one place,
When it went so far and gave great joy in this particular case
