Elton John - "The King Must Die Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

No man's a jester playing Shakespeare

Round your throne room floor
While the juggler's act is danced upon

The crown that you once wore

And sooner or later

Everybody's kingdom must end

And I'm so afraid your courtiers

Cannot be called best friends

Widows had to cry
Caesar's had your troubles

While mercenaries in cloisters sing

And the king must die

Some men are better staying sailors
Take my word and go
But tell the ostler that his name was
The very first they chose

And if my hands are stained forever

And the altar should refuse me
Would you let me in, would you let me in, would you let me in

Should I cry sanctuary

No man's a jester playing Shakespeare

Round your throne room floor

While the juggler's act is danced upon

The crown that you once wore

The king is dead

The king is dead
The king is dead

The king is dead

#############################################Long live the king
