Dragon Carven Throne


Lyrics: Master Alexander de Seaton            
Music: The Golden Vanity - Trad



Oh there was an aged king and he had princes three
And he said to his sons "What if you were king not me?
"For one day I'll be gone and one of you the king shall be
"And you'll sit upon the throne, the dragon carven throne
"You'll sit upon the throne, not me."

The first prince then he stood and said "War king I would be
"I'll wield a mighty sword and the bards shall sing of me.
"I'll lead the dragon army forth to victory
"When I sit upon the throne, the dragon carven throne,
"When I sit upon the throne, not ye."

The second prince he stood and said "Winter king I'd be.
"My raiment will be fine and I'll wear jewelery
"My friends and I will all enjoy the revelry
"When I sit upon the throne, the dragon carven throne,
"When I sit upon the throne, not ye."

The third prince then he stood and said "Servant I shall be
"For I shall serve the people and the land as it should be
"The kingdom will be happy 'round about the inner sea
"If I sit upon the throne, the dragon carven throne,
"If I sit upon the throne, for thee."

The king he silenced all and said "My choice is made for me
"For my sons are all true princes, but just one the king shall be
"And he shall serve the people and the land as it should be
"When he sits upon the throne, the dragon carven throne,
"When he sits upon the throne, for me."
"When he sits upon the throne, the dragon carven throne,
"When he sits upon the throne, for me."
