Alas my love, for you do me wrong............

Henry 8th, famed husband of Six is said to be rolling in it, due to royalty payments for his best known song - Greensleeves.

The famous tune, often murdered by recorder playing children, and used by the banks which are not closing down as hold music, is said to have earned the famed King millions in back payments.

As records came to light,it has been revealed that no-one has paid Henry for years. Not since Jeff Beck covered the tune, has anyone paid for the use of the track, with its well known tune.

Lawyers are said to be looking into this on behalf of royalties for the descendents of prolific composter Trad/Arr and poet Anonymous.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
