lyrics

“In which a monarch undervalues his privileges, and dreams of the simple life.”

I’m thinking of a major break
A furlough from this daily grind
I’m thinking bout some R & R in Spain

A weekend kicking balls and stuff
Relieved from my old reign
This crown drives me insane

It’s a dirty job
But someone’s got to do it

Sure it looks like fun
Though there’s really not much to it

Taking heads and lands
Maidens and taxes

Wearing custom made costumes
And free Disneyland access

Shooting craps with the Pontiff,
Though he’s quite the boring dude

I wish I was a worthless peon just like you

I’m aching for a holiday
A beach resort in Koh Samui
I’m dreaming of bikinis in the sand

No whippings for a day or nine
No jousts and no crusades
Just Thai Sabais in spades

It’s a dirty job
But someone’s got to do it

Sure it looks like fun
Though there’s really not much to it

Taking heads and lands
Maidens and taxes

Wearing custom made costumes
And free Disneyland access

Shooting craps with the Pontiff,
Though he’s quite the boring dude

I wish I was a worthless peon just like you
