The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2012 self-challenge. A ruler can't just be expected to wing it, they must plan for things. Some may be slightly more...devious than others...
Crush the peasants
Yeah, yeah, won't rise again
Cause this time, Imma make some schemes
Crush 'em, yeah, man

There's rebellions out there, need to stop 'em
But my armies can't reach ev'ry province
I've gotta get real tricky, tricky, real tricky, tricky
Like real tricky, tricky, real tricky, tricky
Send a spy through the land askin' questions
Who's most likely to lead a rebe-ellio-on?
Poison 'em quick, real sickly, sickly, real sickly, sickly
Like real sickly, sickly, real sickly, sickly
They ca-an't fight, I've tried it, I've tried it
And the-ey'll look pathetic, pathetic
They wo-on't rise, bet on it, bet on it
No a-attacks and so that is that

So I'm gonna scheme, yeah-eah
Crown on my head's go-on' stay ri-i-ight there
I ain't goin' cause I'm real tricky, tricky, real tricky, tricky
Like real tricky, tricky, real tricky, I might stay up all ni-ight
Lots of plans that I-I plan to-o-o write
Remove any that are too risky, risky, too risky, risky
Like too risky, risky, too risky, I need perfect schemes

Yeah, uh, uh-huh, c'mon

I can't lie, list is a tad eclectic
It's got spies, guns in trees, fakin' hectic
Attacks on si-i-ights, real tricky, tricky, real tricky, tricky (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Like real tricky, tricky, real tricky, tricky
Then when fo-o-olks are afrai-aid, send in soldiers (soldie-e-ers)
Take credit for the sa-a-ave, more exposu-ure
A classic false flag operation, won't see it comin'
Though, obviously, can't do that too often (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
I ho-ope I can try it, can try it
Cause ri-ight now those peasants, dumb peasants
Are a-alright, not bitchin', no bitchin'
But I-I'll plan in case they change that

So I'm gonna scheme, yeah-eah, oh
No-one can say I-I'm unpre-e-epa-ared
Good at thinkin' things, I'm real tricky, tricky, real tricky, tricky (real tricky, tricky-y)
Like real tricky, tricky, real tricky, gonna stay up all ni-i-i-i-ight
Keep thinkin' of mo-ore plots to-o-o write (oh-oh-oh)
Cut out any that are too risky, risky, too risky, risky (yeah)
Like too risky, risky, too risky, I need foolproof schemes (all night, I will sche-eme)

Bro-ows furrowed, scheme (crush 'em) writin' (I love writin' schemes)
Plottin', thinkin', dreamin', schemi-in'
Ca-a-an't let no-one scheme out with me (they can't know my schemes)
Oh-oh-oh-oh (gotta hide my schemes)
Oh-oh-oh-oh (might have their own schemes) ow!

Yeah-eah-eah-eah
Must have plans for mu-utiny-y-y, fai-ai-air
Lords may all hate me, I'm real tricky, tricky (oh-oh-oh), real tricky, tricky (woo!)
Like real tricky, tricky (he-ey-ee-yeah-eah), real tricky, I'll be writin' all ni-i-i-ight
Ev'ry possibl-le plan to-o-o wri-i-ite
Cross out any that are too risky, risky, way too risky, risky
Like too risky, risky, too risky, I need flawless schemes

It's been a while since I've finished a parody in the evening, but I have reasons. First, I was busy downloading music over the weekend, so I've had to double up to keep to my "parody a day" quota. Second, I've kinda had the shits today, so my brain's been occupied. Just in case you needed to know that.
