The Lyrics

Georges Jacques Danton and Maximillien Robespierre were two headstrong architects of the French Revolution. In the end, neither turned out to be headstrong enough.
Lou of France, she's his wife; soon she'll be losing her life.
"See that girl? Lop that bean!" She is not Danton's queen.

'89 and the Bastille blows;
Populace will be donning Robes'.
So now the bright blade's been tuned up
And the rope will swing
To lop off noggin of the king.
I would sure hate to be that guy--
Won't be hung, but a head less high.
And his Austrian beaut gets
The cut most unkind.
They will say "adieu" to France;
They will get no last chance.

She isn't Danton's queen; too bad she'd meet Louis XVI.
Danton's queen?! He'll treat her to the guillotine.
Lou of France, she's his wife; beauty will soon lose her life.
"Cleave that girl! No more seen!" She is not Danton's queen.

The cake-eater will soon be gone,
Cleaved of her head and spat upon.
They will not spawn another; the regime is through.
They will bid "adieu" to France;
Lou's a-dooing his pants.

She isn't Danton's queen; he's got new ideas for regime.
Danton's team may treat you to the guillotine.
Loose in France, scenes of strife; beaucoup are losing their life.
"Cleave that churl!" That's the scream. Detached is Danton's bean.

Is today Bastille Day? Thanks for the lesson of the true meaning of the "holiday" anyway.

Another history song today. Have to admit I'm not too familiar with the subject matter, but it flows well with the OS, and I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed that, John. I think Merry will like this if she sees it.
