  • Pop Cultural referance: The Princess Phone - It's Little, It's Lovely, It Lights! (tm) was introducted by The Bell System (AT & T) back in 1959. It was made by Western Electric, to take up less space on desk or nightstand. The light on the dial was first lit by household power. (Tim P. Ryan)
  • Was the B-side to the single release of "Ricky" in 1983. (sav-man)
  • While not a parody of any one song, the music is a parody of Blues cliches (down to the slide guitar and harp). (sav-man)
  • An original by Weird Al that pokes fun at England's "Royal Couple" (Prince Charles & Lady Diana). (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Gonna tell you a story
    About Chuck and Diane
    Couple British kids from
    The palace at Buckingham

    Chuckie wants to grow up
    And be a polo star
    And ride his little horsies
    All around the backyard, oh yeah

    You know they really paid their dues
    I said hey, lawdy mama
    They got them Buckingham blues

    Now Chuckie goes hunting
    And leaves Diane alone
    So she fixes her hair
    And she talks on the Princess Phone

    Chuckie's still tryin' to figure out
    What his job's supposed to be
    And Diane's the fashion leader
    Of the aristocracy

    I said hey, Lady Di
    Tell me where'd you get them shoes, ah
    Well, hey nonny nonny
    Looks like you got them Buckingham blues

    Aw, bein' heir to the throne, well
    It must be awful hard
    Gotta pose for pictures
    Out on the front yard

    And Lady Di, well
    She must have it pretty rough
    Gotta hang around the house all day
    Makin' babies and stuff

    Another game of croquet
    Then they're off on a Caribbean cruise
    Well hey bop-a-re-bop
    They really got them Buckingham blues

    Ah, tell the truth, now, tell the truth

    I got my mojo workin'
    yeah, woo, don't help me now
    Ah, hurt me mama, whoa, ah

    They don't serve no Twinkies
    With their afternoon tea
    Never had a dinner
    Made by Chef Boyardee

    Bein' in the spotlight
    Is a hard life to choose
    Diane drops half a pound
    It's on the six o'clock news, oh yeah

    Those kids have really paid their dues
    Oh, what a royal pain it is
    When you got them Buckingham blues
    (Sonic SBL)
