The Queen’s English

The Queen's English 

Received pronunciation, 
with little deviation, 
is required to be a big cheese. 
If you're born in the South 
with a plum in your mouth, 
then it's something you'll manage, with ease. 

Live further North, 
say somewhere like Wath, 
and your accent's looked on with disdain. 
If you wish to go far, 
be more than mere par, 
posh speech, you must learn how to feign.
