'Almost Royal's Poppy & Georgie Carlton Aren't Real Royalty or Country Music Royalty

In the season finale of BBC America's Almost Royal , Poppy and Georgie Carlton are making their way on down to Nashville. Lucky for fans, I'm sure the pair of posh misfits are going to run into their fair share of southern-inspired "misunderstandings," which will, undoubtedly, be all of their own devious doing.

Knowing that the comedians that play Poppy and Georgie, Amy Hoggart and Ed Gamble, like to have a bit of fun with the American locals, they're probably going to take every chance they have to create an awkward moment or two. The biggest (and most hysterical) challenge the siblings could potentially face? The lyrics to actual country songs. Take a look at few of the lyrics that Georgie and Poppy's naive minds might not understand (or might take too literally), and what I imagine they would say in response to them.

"It ain't for the money, it ain't for the glory, it ain't for the free whiskey/ It's for the badonkadonk."

Georgie: Badonkadonk? Is that a type of biscuit? My nanny usually hand feeds me my biscuits. Maybe she’ll give me a badonkadonk if I say pretty please.

"Oh, she tells her friends I'm perfect/ And that I love her cat, but you know me better than that."

Poppy: Mummy has a cat. But she’s really quite dreadful. She never lets anyone play with her.

“And she is yelling at a bridesmaid / Somewhere back inside a room / Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry."

Georgie: That sounds like Poppy’s friend Margaret’s wedding. Poppy had too much bubbly, and said some nasty things.Poppy: But, Georgie — it was ugly.

"But right now his worries are gone/ Life looks good, good, good/ Billy’s got his beer goggles on.”

Poppy: Beer goggles? Do people wear them so the yucky servant drink won’t splash on their face?

"When you see a priceless French painting/ I see a drunk, naked girl."

Georgie: I can relate to this. One time mummy posed in her panties while Mr. Shrewsbury drew her portrait. Sometimes when I close my eyes, I can still smell the paint.

"Save a horse, ride a cowboy."

Poppy: Ride a cowboy? That seems like it would be difficult. I don’t remember anybody doing that in Toy Story.
