God rest ye, frantic Autocrat

by Tivar Moondragon

God rest ye, frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that your great event is still a month away
Don't panic yet, there's still some time
And don't get swept away

(CHORUS) And sing ye in chorus
"Never again, Never again!"
And sing ye in chorus
"Never again!"

God rest ye, frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that your great event
Is still two weeks away
The site is grand though if it rains
It might just wash away...

God rest ye frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that your great event
Is still a week away
The music's fine, if only  they
Remember how to play...

God rest ye frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that your great event
Is still three days away
The feast is planned, the food's been bought
Though God knows how you'll pay...

God rest ye, frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
Despite the fact your great event
Is scheduled for today
The war is grand, the rain won't last
For very long they say...

God rest ye frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
Despite the fact that everything
Is going wrong today
The King and Queen came unannounced
And God knows who else may...

God rest ye frantic autcrat
Let nothing you dismay
The ants have eaten half your food
And dragged your tent away
Some mundanes called the cops
And they took the Grogs away...

God rest ye frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
It's stinking hot, it just might hail
You'd better start to pray
The gas ran out, the food will spoil
So serve it anyway...

God rest ye frantic autocrat
Let nothing you dismay
The feast was grand though half the court
Is dying of the plague
The revel would have been great, but
The tavern blew away...

God help ye, frantic autocrat
You'd better run away
The Queen is mad - her tent and King
Have both been washed away
It might be wise to change your name
And quit the SCA

God rest ye, frantic utocrat
Now hide ye while ye may
The gentry loved that damned event
That happenend yesterday
They're asking for another one
The King hopes you'll obey

And they're singing in chorus
"Do it again, Do it again!"
And theyre singing in chorus
"Do it again!"
