May I assume that "navee" means "navy"?
Student or Learner
Hello. Can anyone tell me what the expression "The Ruler of the Queen's Navee" refers to, please? Thank you. :)
It's from a song in the musical HMS Pinafore, and it is actually spelled 'Navee' in the lyrics. Not sure why, though.
The person singing the song is in charge of the entire British Navy. Presumably he's some kind of admiral.
It's basically a 'rags to riches' story.
