lyrics

He's not very far from the castle gates or the guillotine. Beds with the whores but they never get paid he just sleeps there at night.
If he speaks out of place they'll carve his tongue out with a shiny blade
no one around the castle these days has any respect for the knave. All on his own and three feet tall.
Blacksmith's son born on the southern coast had to learn to survive. Caught the eye of a lord, entertaining the knights, it was the hand of the king that brought him in from the cold. Juggles fire, sings for king and court and all the while his family deserted on the other side.
If he speaks out of place they'll carve his tongue out with a shiny blade. No one around the castle these days has any respect for the knave. All on his own and three feet tall.
Some will harbor sympathy for a maiden in an ivory tower but I will always side with a fool before a knight. All on his own. All his own.
In the horrible sun, the hounds on the hill, the drop of a blade.
