My king!

My king!

Your people need you,

My king!

Our kingdom is turning,

And our people are burning,

But you are but a fool,

My king!

Because of your name,

You are,

My king!

Gods chosen king,

But a fool you are,

My king!

Our court jester is wise,

But you name him your fool,

My king!

Why must you be,

My king!?

And not the court jester

My king!?
