I won't go in detail
Of Diana's fairytale
'Cause I know you've heard it all before
Let's just say she won the crown
Couldn't keep dinner down
Said the Prince was just a clown
And now she's six feet under...

God couldn't save the Princess
I can't save a dime
In the name of God, country, and progress
Stop wasting my time

Am I small? Am I mean?
Am I somewhere inbetween a rock star and a heart ache
Why am I not so angry at the Paparazzo
Who snapped off the final picture --
So contrary to the Scripture?
If the cameras weren't on her
Would she still be your honor?
No doubt, she was a cutey;
She died in the line of duty.

God couldn't save the Princess
I'll save my tears for a girl I knew
A twisted British model of success
What did she really do for you?

Why do you feel worse for her sons
Than you do for motherless ones
Who won't grow up to be the king?
Why do I take such pleasure
In the end of lives of leisure?
How can your admiration withstand the saturation?
Do your tears make you happy
'Cause they prove that you feel crappy?
Maybe I don't care but you just want to say you were there.

God couldn't save the Princess
I thought God saved the best for last?
In a world that judges asses and assets
Sometimes even God takes a pass.

Maybe I just like to rip her
'Cause I know that her glass slipper
Would shatter on my foot and cut me down
Just because she was a royal
Must I drag her name through soil?
I can't be a subject loyal and of conversation

God couldn't save the Princess
Should He save the Queen?
I don't give a damn about their Highness
Well I don't give a damn about anyone but me -- please, God, save me.

Die Diana, Die Diana, Die Diana, Diana we love you.
