A bilingual tribute to Queen Camilla

Gabriel Rosenstock's bilingual tribute to Queen Camilla has moved millions of her ardent followers:

Ar chuala tú trácht ar Chamilla
b'í gile na gile í - na gile!
do chruaidh sí gach slat
bhí go dtí sin gan at
cé gur fhéach sí ar nós sean-sinsile

There was a fine queen called Camilla
whose partner was Charles the Gorilla
and every young loner
developed a boner
at the thought of this wizened chinchilla
