Kudos to John Barry and his merry band of commenters for inspiring this!
[Note: Verses are sung over chorus vocals and bridges are sung over other background vocals.]

Dupe, dupe, dupe
Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe
Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe
Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe

Dupe the...stupe, stupe, stupe
Stupid churls, stupe, stupe
Stupid churls, stupe, stupe
Stupid churls, stupe, stupe

As I-I hawk screws I've knurled
Gruffly they shop, the stupid churls
Ah, the rubes, rubes garbed like earls
A-stroll on the purlieu, so slow

Yes-a-I know I'm such a smug dude, oh oh
Come-ons whet thee, olden varlets
'Cause I will dupe the churls
Oh, yea, yea, yea yeah-ah (Dupe-duh-duh-dupe-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-dupe)

And when I've sold you
You'll feel my clutches touchin' your purse
And I'll hawk screws I've scooped up
At the Renaissance theme-ful faire

Yes-a-I know I'm gonna mug you, oh oh
Bluffing, I rob thee, louts
The mindless, stupid churls
Oh, yea, yea, yea yeah (Dupe-duh-duh-dupe-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-dupe)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe)
Ah, ah, ah, ah (Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Stupid churls, stupe, stupe)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Stupid churls, stupe, stupe)
Ah, ah, ah (Stupid churls, stupe, stupe)

Well, I know I'm such a smug dude, oh oh
Hustling the shopping crowd
The mindless, stupid churls
Oh, yea, yea, yea, yeah (Dupe-duh-duh-dupe-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-dupe)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Dupe the churls, dupe, dupe)
Oh, ah, ah, ah, ah

The Duke of Earl? Are you kidding me? Common knowledge! At least for black folk.
