In a far-off land across the sea four hundred years ago
Was a Lilliputian emperor in gold from top to toe
As he sat upon his throne feasting on Madagascan duck
A knock upon the castle doors, like thunder, came and struck
"And who is this", his highness said, "So pertinent and rude
That I am interrupted from this rarest of all foods"
No sooner did the open doors reveal in its shape
A phantom with a torch and stars and stripes across the cape
Singing
"I have a message for the king
Let independence ring
Your subjects are all discontented lately
I have a message for the king
Do you hear the people sing
The angry mob is coming for you, baby"
"And who are you, with tone so bold, to place on me this threat"
This Lilliputian king remarked in voice with venom set
Quoth the phantom, "While you can, sir, please enjoy your cake
For I am not the one to threaten falling kings with fate
No, I am more a messenger of things that will transpire
Of things that will occur no matter who you kill or hire"
And then she disappeared, like she was never there at all
But not before she left these words to echo in the hall
Saying
"I have a message for the crown
You've let your people down
The sand within your hourglass is falling
And yes your rose is strongly built
But all roses must wilt
And for your crown, the commonwealth is calling"
And down in the valley, with their gunpowder presents
And their torches in hand, with their hearts full of vengeance
For the king at the top, with his reasonless penchants
Marches 70,000 Lilliputian peasants
They overwhelmed the guards and used a tree to break the doors
And gave the king a fate left to imagination, yours
The Scarlet Goth in front led in a jubilant hurray
And prided himself wrongly that he'd never see the day
When she'd say
"I have a message for the king
Let independence ring
Your subjects are all discontented lately
I have a message for the king
Do you hear the people sing
The angry mob is coming for you, baby
I have a message for the king
Let independence ring
The angry mob is coming for you, baby
I have a message for the king
Do you hear the people sing
The angry mob is coming for you"
