The Court of King Cornelius

Karl Faustus, October 2002

This was commissioned by Lady Sybille even before Sir Cornelius won November Crown, AS XXXVII, and before he became Lochac's second King. It's to the tune of The Court of King Caractacus, which was made popular by Rolf Harris.

Oh, the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
Oh, the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
Oh, the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
Oh, the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
Oh, the peerage in the service
Of the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
(All together now!)
...
Oh, the squires who are indentured
To the peerage in the service
Of the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
...
Oh, the alcoholic wenches
On the tavern's wooden benches
Serving cider to the squires who are indentured
To the peerage in the service
Of the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
Were just passing by.
...
If you'd like to have adventures
With the alcoholic wenches
On the tavern's wooden benches
Serving cider to the squires who are indentured
To the peerage in the service
Of the nobles of the kingdom
Of the court of King Cornelius
You're too late!
Because they've just passed by!
