Earl

Only one more task to tackle
Before we reach the final battle
Loose the Earl o' Hell's belt-buckle
Crumple down his trousers

Hazel Forks, Spoils

This is the realm of the Earl-king, my friend, you must understand
I see him, I see him come running, a fire whisk all in his right hand

The Wheels of the World, unreleased

I will give my earldom for a thralldom
I'll give my freedom for the kingdom
No more delight in open whoredom
I'll give my mantle/ermine for a pall

The Hidden Sin, unreleased

Empire

It's a joy to be here on the edge of empire
Mounted men and all our pomp and show
It's a joy to be here on the edge of empire
And survey the many in the valley low

Scandal and Trance, unreleased

King

But still I remember the things that you taught me,
A man will be armed, and will wear the King's crest,
And the weakness of the head is the jewel of a woman,
So she shall repose with a babe at her breast.

I Am a Young Man, Farewell Sorrow

Down by the sea, knee-deep in seaweed,
I had a kiss of the King's hand, down by the sea.
I had a kiss of the King's hand, the King's hand,
I had a kiss of the King's hand, down by the sea.
...
And the King, he shook me free,
And waded out to sea.
And what should come tumbling on the brine?
A barrel of the King's own wine.

Oh, down by the sea, knee-deep in seaweed,
I had a kiss of the King's hand, down by the sea.
I had a kiss of the King's hand, the King's hand,
I had a kiss of the King's hand, down by the sea.

I had a sip of the King's wine, the King's wine,
I had a sip of the King's wine, down by the sea.

Then I fell asleep in the King's arms, the King's arms,
I fell asleep in the King's arms, down by the sea.

I Had a Kiss of the King's Hand, The Amber Gatherers

With cannons fanning out at every angle
Port and starboard fore and aft
An old and lofty clock was seen to dangle
From the topmost lofty mast
The hallucinator just looked and laughed
The king of time he's dragged her from the ocean
Stood her there to drip and dry

The Hallucinator and the King of the Silver Ship of Time, The Wyrd Meme


This is the realm of the Earl-king, my friend, you must understand

Kingdom

I will give my earldom for a thralldom
I'll give my freedom for the kingdom
No more delight in open whoredom
I'll give my mantle/ermine for a pall

The Hidden Sin, unreleased

The whole of the kingdom is clouded in brimstone
Sons against fathers and fathers 'gainst sons
Collar to shoulder and thighbone to shinbone
There never was heard such confusion of tongues,

The Merry Wake, unreleased

Lord

And I gave myself up to a governing passion,
Strutting around like some lord of misrule.
Taking delight in my rifle reporting,
Fighting and sporting and playing the fool

I Am a Young Man, Farewell Sorrow

Once you were lord
Once you were lord over all the wildwood
And you gave the green gift
Yes, you gave the green blessing to any you chose

Gave the Green Blessing, unreleased

Queen

So strike up the ceilidh, lay down your burdens
The queen of the unseen abodes in the room
It's not the round reel, no, it's not the Gay Gordon
She'll dance a dark morris all over your tomb

The Merry Wake, unreleased
