The Worst Job in England Lyrics

2021 Broadway
DIANA the Musical - The Worst Job in England Lyrics

Performed by Judy Kaye (Queen Elizabeth), Roe Hartrampf (Prince Charles).

CAST:
The headline of 1980:

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
"Playboy Prince Needs a Lady"

CAST:
His mother grew quite upset

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
For he hadn't found her yet
It was fine when you were new
But, good God, you're 32 - what's a monarch to do?

(spoken)
There must be someone appropriate, Charles

CHARLES: (spoken)
You'd be surprised how few, Mummy

CAST:
Ladies here are royal kitsch
Step right up and strike it rich!
By the way, there's just one hitch:
It's the worst job
The worst job in England!

QUEEN ELIZABETH: (spoken)
We are in crisis! Our popularity is declining,
the public trusts us less and less...

CHARLES: (spoken)
And you're saying that's my fault?

QUEEN ELIZABETH: (spoken)
I'm saying your philandering isn't helping matters

(sung)
You're the heir to the British crown
You were bred to settle down
Our future queen should have no past
Find her, Charles, and find her fast!

CAST:
The boy just can't decide

CHARLES:
I swear to God, I've tried

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
This is matricide!

CHARLES: (spoken)
Well, there is one possibility:

CAST:
Daughter of a British earl...

CHARLES: (spoken)
The youngest Spencer daughter, Lady Diana

CAST:
Lovely as an English pearl...

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
Seemingly, the perfect girl

CAST:
For the worst job
The worst job in England!

QUEEN ELIZABETH: (spoken)
But didn't you used to court her sister?

CHARLES: (spoken)
Sarah, yes, until she started mouthing off
to the press about our relationship

QUEEN ELIZABETH: (spoken)
That was stupid of her

CHARLES: (spoken)
But Diana's different.
She's... very shy, and I'm certain she'll be discreet.
But I'm not certain this is what she wants

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
How could she not? She'll be Britain's heart!

CAST:
Though time to time, she'll be torn apart...

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
She'll have a staff all her own

CAST:
And not another moment alone!

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
She'll be celebrated, our country's pride

CAST:
And spend her life objectified

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
She'll have a place in our history books

CAST:
And forever, she'll be judged by her looks!

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
Britain won't be mollified

CAST:
Till we have a princess bride

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
A country unified!

CHARLES:
A girl like her is hard to find

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
A princess we could get behind

CAST:
Then again, keep in mind:
It's the worst job, the worst job...

CHARLES:
A royal couple casts a spell

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
A royal wedding serves us well

CAST:
A fairy tale born in hell!

QUEEN ELIZABETH:
She's the best girl

CAST:
The best girl
For the worst job, the worst job
It's the worst job
The worst job in England!

[Thanks to Harman for lyrics]
