Set Before the King

Sing a song of six pence and a pocket full of rye
Four and twenty black birds baked into a pie
    When the pie was open, the birds began to sing
Wasn't that a dandy dish set before the king

    In another life at the round table with Lancelot
I tried to run away with Guinevere but I got caught
    I heard Arthur shouting to his guards,
        "Off with his head!"
They served me on a silver platter set before the king

    I took a trip to Memphis but I was so disappointed
Because I couldn't find Elvis' ghost but just a fat man sitting in a rocking
    Singing, "I'm a Hunka-Hunka Burnin' Love!", echoed all throughout
And I could not turn away, you know I just had to listen
        Set Before the King

Sometimes I wonder am I leading my life right
Sometimes I sit and ponder as the day turns into night
    I look up to the heavens and I raise my voice and sing
That someday maybe I'll be sitting up there
         Set Before the King

All songs and files were written, composed, performed, and produced by me,
