Her name was Lady Godiva
A lady so brave and so strong
Her husband the Earl of Mercia
He treated her terribly wrong

She's a lady
She's a lady
She rode naked on horseback
To stop him from his tax increase

But people in town closed their curtains
Than prison for living in peace

[Chorus]
She's a lady
She's a lady
She's a lady, Lady Godiva
The hero of Coventry
L-L-Lady Lady Godiva
She rode into history

Then sneaking a glance through the window
Was a guy they called Peeping Tom
He caught a glimpse and was blinded
Curiosity sometimes is wrong

[Chorus]

People liked Lady Godiva
Respectfully looking away
They honored incredible courage
Her legend lives until today

[Chorus: x 2]
