OUR KING'S DAUGHTER

Our king is a fine good man

He is married to a lovely woman 

In royalty, he is the greatest of his kind

In his time, there is none of his kind


Our king rules vast domains

Peace, love, justice, he'll maintains

Our king was the greatest in his time

He administered justice in his prime


Our king is rich in gold, and silver

He created a garden near the river

He planted fruits of all kind

To eat and to ease his mind


Our king built a beautiful castle

His servants rare thousands of his cattle

The beauty of his palace people gape

He drinks from his garden's grapes 


Our king had no male child

With sadness his heart mild 

Our queen could not bare him any

Among his subjects it perplexed many 


Our king had a beautiful daughter

He cherished her like no other

Our king needs a successor

To save people from the oppressor


Our king became sick and very old

He needed a successor, so bold 

Whom the burden he must carry

The princess must marry
