The Lyrics

Hint: 'Let them eat cake'
It ruined my dynasty, but even without it, it would've had to end.

They said that, I was amused, by the plights of the servants you did abuse.
But they finally got organized and shook off their yoke
And they, opened their eyes, and now you're the joke.
There's a hole on that thing for you to put your head,
He'll pull the rope and you'll soon be dead.
Ha, ha woman it's a crying shame,
But you ain't got nobody else to blame.

Chorus
Medieval woman, Medieval woman, Medieval woman, Medieval woman.

Rolled in from Vienna in an pretty gown,
Knew you'd be Queen of that Paris town.
But you fooled with the privileged nobility's ways,
And they used the peasants to make you pay.
Ha, ha woman what you gonna do,
They've, killed all your friends and they'll get you too.
So sorry that you're feeling pain,
But the, nobles will find they're next in the chain.

Chorus: repeat

Medieval woman, it's sad you did no wrong,
Trying to change things to make them strong.
Ha, ha funny, don't you lose your head, you've been strong this long now suck it up.
de'Lambelle came running every time you cried,
Now her head's stuck up on a pole outside.
Ha, ha very nice to know, that it's finally over, time for you to go.

Chorus: Repeat

Ha! Serves Jeff Lynne right for adding a 3rd syllable to the word "evil". Clever idea, a companion piece to Allan Sherman's classic, "You Went The Wrong Way Old King Louie"! 555

Actually, while Marie Antoinette may have had medieval attitudes, the Middle Ages were well over by the time she came along. And the remark, "Then let them eat cake" also precedes her. Having said that, let me say that there's nothing wrong with loving a medieval woman, especially if she lets you eat cake. Just as long as she doesn't have any medieval torture devices. It's hard enough when she possesses magical powers. I know whereof I speak... don't I, My Lady?

With a harpsicord and flute, this would have a truly baroque flavor.

I liked it... I agree with Michael's analysis and with Agrimorfee's love of all things Sherman!
