The Lyrics

Title pronounced Lou X-V-I
Lou XVI, adieu,
You're gonna go,
Die, die, die, die--no head.
Lou XVI, a slayee,
You're gonna go.

"Eat cake" girl waits nervously
In the Bastille; her name's Marie.
The Terror will make her atone
Along with you--you've lost the throne.


It's lights out for the king and queen.
You and girl—guillotine.
Ere the blow, your neck's made bare,
Exposed when they part your hair.


Peasants: "D'accord, tuons-les, maintenant!"
[Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!]

(Guilltar solo)

"Say 'jamais,' [never] cur, 'cause soon the Bois
De Boulogne you'll not encore vois. [see again]
We'll tie your arms in back--get set.
You're both in for a tête-à-tête."


"Take those heads off!" How they cheer.
Têtes go!"

Comme les parodies vont, ceci était plus dr'le que plus. (As the parodies go, this was funnier than most.) I almost laughed my head off.

Hey John, missed you. It was another night of parody. Bob Konigsberg did that one he posted today. I did "Sing Like a Man" and "Our hearse" Mari did "Bagpipes Have Arrived" and "Don't Name a Star After Me" Paul did "Wine in a Bottle" and something about Andy and Barney. I can't remember exact titles, but it was a hoot.
