lyrics

- may there be no remorse here for the patience you have shown, save the satisfaction of knowing your house is made of stone - but who you going and kidding yourself man, you ain’t got no house at all - you’re gonna sleep under the skye tonight, where that green grass grows tall - come on let’s sleep under the sky tonight, well beyond these castle walls - well the hangman woke and made his bed when the gallows they did call - said he’d like to keep things tidy before the ground beneath him falls - that way next time he come round through these parts again he’ll have a place to rest his head - bet it sure do get exhausting coming back again to live amongst the dead - may there be no remorse here for the patience that you have shown save the satisfaction of knowing your house is made of stone - but who’re you going and kidding yourself man - you ain’t got no house at all - gonna sleep under the sky tonight where that green grass grows tall - come on let’s sleep under the sky tonight well beyond these castle walls - the jester’s crying to himself in the east tower of the castle - with a razor to his wrist, he’s so sick of getting hassled - then he recalled this punchline he’d forgotten from way on way back when - hate to think but what without a little humor that situation could have been - but may there be no remorse here for the patience you have shown, save the satisfaction of knowing that your house is made of stone, but who’re you goin’ and kid’n yourself though man you ain’t got no house at all - gonna sleep under the sky tonight where that green grass grows tall - come on let’s sleep under the sky tonight way beyond these castle walls - the old king knew he’d find himself finished without a son - already had himself four daughters with wife number one - he’s hoping wife number two ‘ll give him that baby boy of his aging hearts desire - swears if he don’t get his way this time he’ll set his whole kingdom on up fire -
