lyrics

One Eyed Man

Many many years ago
there was a one eyed man
He sat upon a golden throne
And ruled a sightless land

His crowning lacked sagacity
He wasn’t aristocracy
They crowned him just cause he could see
He was a one eyed man

He was a careless guy
He had no depth of field
He guarded his one eye
With all that he could wield

He made a lot of silly rules
And rode upon a pack of mules
While showing off his family jewels
And no one knew at all

One day his kingdom was attacked
By monsters in the night
They honed in on his lonely eye
And robbed him of his sight

He ran into the streets and cried
“come everyone with me and hide!”
He led them off a cliff and died
Farewell to the one eyed man
