The Village Green Preservation Society
The Kinks Lyrics


We are the Village Green Preservation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties

Preserving the old ways from being abused
Protecting the new ways, for me and for you
What more can we do?

We are the Draught Beer Preservation Society
God save Mrs. Mopp and good old Mother Riley
We are the Custard Pie Appreciation Consortium
God save the George Cross, and all those who were awarded them

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

We are the Sherlock Holmes English-speaking Vernacular
God save Fu Manchu, Moriarty and Dracula
We are the Office Block Persecution Affinity
God save little shops, china cups, and virginity
We are the Skyscraper Condemnation Affiliates
God save Tudor houses, antique tables, and billiards

Preserving the old ways from being abused
Protecting the new ways, for me and for you
What more can we do?

We are the Village Green Preservation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
God save strawberry jam and all the different varieties

We are the Village Green Preservation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
God save Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety

God save the Village Green!

Criminal how the Kinks didnt acheive the success of the Stones or the Who. Equally as good if not better in terms of songwriting.
Ray was a genious. Totally cutting edge. Fucking brilliant 😎.

Luis Mario Guerrero Sánchez

Actually, The Kinks had more success than The Who, scoring 3 number one hit singles, something The Who never managed to achieve.

This song kind of explains why it's ok that that they didn't achieve corporate, mass-media fame.

"We are the Sherlock Holmes English-speaking vernacular, help save Fu Manchu, Moriarty and Dracula"

Anyone who rhymes 'vernacular' and 'Dracula' is okay in my books. God save The Kinks and all those who believe in them.
