George Ezra Takes Out Lyric About Dying At Queen’s Jubilee Concert
| Last updated
George Ezra made a very noticeable change to some of his lyrics as he performed his hit song 'Green Green Grass' at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert. Have a listen:
The singer's performance last night (4 June) at the Platinum Party at the Palace went down a treat with the crowd and the viewers at home, but fans didn't let a quick change in lyrics go unspotted.
In the song 'Green Green Grass', the lyrics usually go: "Green green grass, blue blue sky / You better throw a party on the day that I die."
However, the 28-year-old singer didn't sing those lines and chose to omit them as he performed to the crowds and members of the royal family.
Fans were quick to notice that the reference to death and a party weren't sung, and quickly took to social media to share their thoughts.
The reference to a party and death was called out as 'tempting fate' by some viewers, with one watcher tweeting: "I wonder if George Ezra didn’t want to tempt fate yesterday be deliberately leaving out the last few words in the chorus of Green Green Grass".
Another found the missing lyrics comical, as they shared: "The fact that George Ezra did not sing « on the day that I die » while performing Green Green Grass for the Queen’s jubilee is peak comedy to me."
Watch the jubilee concert last night, I can’t be the only one who winced when George Ezra started to sing Green Green Grass, with the oft repeated chorus line:— Alf (@AlfWebb) June 5, 2022
“Green green grass, blue blue sky
You better throw a party on the day that I die”
Why am I absolutely creased at the platinum party making George Ezra cut the end off his “throw a party on the day that i die” lyric 💀— Carley (@_carlsss) June 4, 2022
Some viewers thought the move to not mention death at the celebrations of the 96-year-old monarch were 'respectful'.
One viewer tweeted: "Big Respect to my BOY @george_ezra for dropping the Lyrics. “On the Day I die” with your song “green green grass” today at the Jubilee Party.
"Big Respect for our Majesty and very mature choice. Kuddos".
It's still not known whether Ezra was told to change the lyrics or whether he chose to omit them himself.
LADbible has gone to Ezra for a comment.
Elsewhere at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations outside Buckingham Palace, members of the royal family could be seen well and truly getting into the swing of things.
Prince George and Prince William were spotted happily singing along to 'Sweet Caroline' when Rod Stewart entertained the crowds.
The royals joined the crowd of 22,000 people outside the Palace yesterday to enjoy the special jubilee concert, with performances from the likes of Craig David, Adam Lambert and Eurovision star Sam Ryder.
It wasn't just Prince George and Prince William singing along either, as Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte were also seen waving Union Jack flags and singing along too.
