    The priests go down to the river to fish for Friday's meal
    The King is brooding day and night
    Black with hate, cursing fate
    To be ill when the foe is in sight.

    The priests they kneel in the chancel in solemn peaceful prayer
    The King is laughing, grim and slow
    Three brothers die, he hung them high
    On a gibbet they died a cruel show.

    The priests they crouch o'er their books and scratch away at history
    The King he rises from his bed
    Leads his men, rides again
    But before he sees the border he is dead.

    The priests they walk in procession with the coffin of state
    The King he leaves his work undone
    It is his fate, despite his hate
    That his foe lives on to fight his son.
