The Day that Dodi and Di' Died

The palace it is makin noises, sounds jist like relief
They wir jist a bit alarmed when she met her Arab chief
Chairlie and Camilla hud a thorn in thir sides
But they lost the chance tae tie the knot
The day that Dodi and Di died

Noo MI5 and MI6 could always make the time
Tae guard her while she hud the weans tae cairy on the line
But she wisnae sae important when she split up fae her man
They wir gaurdin thir bank balances the day that Dodi and Di died

Chorus:

It wis love it wis love could the bastards no leave them alane
It wis love it wis love could the vultures no leave them alane
It wis love it wis love could the hoodies no leave them alane
It wis love it wis love could the ghoulies no leave them alane

The driver o' the motor car that took them doon the road
He'd hud a few but he wisnae fu' but he thocht that he wis god
He wis gaun sae fast he lost the car his life alang wi his job
Aye he lost a lot o' friends as weel the day that Dodi and Di died

Chorus

The greedy papparrazi took some pictures o' it aw
Tae call them vultures' a compliment, thir jist like hoodie craws
Jist lit them smell the money and they'll come an pick your bones
But nae wey that they kin justify the wey that Dodi and Di died

Chorus

I'll never forget the day she come tae visit Bo'ness toon
I took my laddie doon tae see her at Barnardos hame
Wi a thoosand folk delighted tae be shakin at her hand
Aye a lot o' tears wir runnin' doon the day that Dodi and Di died

Whit will the papers dae noo that thir gravy train has crashed
They'll maybe have tae find some honest work tae make thir cash
They'll never find anither story like the wan they killed
Aye a lot o' jobs went doon the drain the day that Dodi and Di died

Noo Dodis' faither's gonnie git the swine that killed his son
He's plenty money backin' him tae git the rat pack done
He says that when it gits tae court the judge'll send them doon
Aye an they'll regret the things they did the day that Dodi and Di died

Chorus

The laddies they'll be hurtin' noo they're gonnie miss thir maw
They've lost the best thing in thir lives but cannie greet at aw
They've got tae pit a face on it and grieve behind the wa'
Aye, they lost the chance tae grow up loved the day that Dodi and Di died

Aye, they lost the chance tae grow up loved the day that Dodi and Di died
