The Execution Of Louis Capet

RINGMASTER
In the spring of ninety-two
The Austrians and the Prussians too
Crossed the line
The war had come
The people went to see the King
Reluctantly he let them in

RINGMASTER & CHORUS
And over tea they said that
He must choose one hat

RINGMASTER
A crown in Koblenz with his friends
Or if he chose to make amends
He might adopt

CHORUS
He might adopt

RINGMASTER & CHORUS
Their scarlet bonnet

RINGMASTER
Surprise, surprise, when left to choose
Too late he chose "The Bonnet Rouge"

MARIE MARIANNE
Adieu Louis for you it's over
Too many carpenters and bookkeepers and gardeners
Gave their ordinary lives to be free
On the battlefields of the Tuileries

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
To be King is a sacred trust
But you betrayed us
Poor King Louis
We must take your life
Clean the slate, start anew
Poor Louis, it's over for you

TROUBLEMAKER
The time for grief is not yet here
Itís to build a world without tears
That we toll the funeral bell
And shed our precious blood
Poor Louis and your precious blood as well

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
Poor King Louis, you'll soon be dead
Poor King Louis, far from your bed

TROUBLEMAKER
Far from your bed

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
Life must always end to start anew

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Poor King Louis
It's over for you!

QUEEN
It's always the terror you can rely on
To eat its way into your heart
Like rust and there to spy on
The blood, the blade, the speeches made
That mingle in your very entrails
