Who might you be, Oh Billy-boy,

A grand adviser to the king,

A stable servant, long forgot,

Or a cook that serves the queen?


So many duties might have done you well

And brought you treasures for your purse,

Yet you have mastered a way with words

So you strum the strings and sing a verse.


You strum and sing, and the Jester dances,

You strum and sing, and the king gets drunk.

You strum and sing, and the queen's aroused,

Then she pins you down on a servant's bunk!


Off with his head says the drunken king

As the gallows-man readies the blade!

But the Jester helps you quickly escape,

By the queen, he's was handsomely paid!
