Daisy May Cooper has truly outdone herself, writing absolutely inspired lyrics to the theme tune of BBC soap Eastenders.
The Eastenders theme tune is one that pretty much everyone in the UK could recognise in an instant, thanks mostly to the famously dramatic drum introduction.
But have you ever thought about how the theme tune might sound if you added lyrics to it summarising what the show is all about?
Daisy, 34, who co-created and starred in award-winning comedy series This Country, decided to take on the task, coming up with lyrics that both accurately and hilariously describe the soap.
In a video that she shared on Instagram, she sings her version of the theme song, saying: ‘Everything is f***ing s**t. Phil Mitchell, shagging his brother’s wife.
‘Someone owns the pub and just says, ‘Ey you get out of my pub, get out my effing pub.’
Daisy continues, singing: ‘And no one can swear, so they just use terms like, ‘You think I’m some sort of mug.’
In the song, the actor notes that there’ll probably ‘be a murder around Christmas to reel the viewers in’.
‘And Ian Beale’s still in the show, but he does panto in Swindon at Christmas time,’ she adds at the end for her epic conclusion.
Daisy’s rendition of her truthful Eastenders theme tune proved a hit among her 628,000 Instagram followers.
‘This is the best ahhahahah,’ one person said, with another saying the song could reach number one on the charts at Christmas.
Meanwhile, Coronation Street star Daniel Brocklebank asked if she could create another one for the ITV soap.
Earlier this week, Daisy shared a musical tribute to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, naming it ‘Covid the musical’.
‘I’ve got a holiday booked in January, but I bet that’s now f***ing cancelled,’ she sang.
‘I can’t go to Poundland to look at the things, because of f***ing Covid.’
One Instagram user requested Daisy share ‘more musicals’ on social media, adding that the lyrics at the end of Covid the musical were ‘so tender’.
