Song of the King lyrics

Song of the King

King
A woman is a female who is human,
Designed for pleasing man, the human male.
A human male is pleased by many women,
And all the rest you hear is fairy tale.

Anna
Then tell me how this fairy tale began, sir.
You cannot call it just a poet's trick
Explain to me why many men are faithful
And true to one wife only-

King
[speaks]
They are sick!

[sings]
A girl must be like a blossom
With honey for just one man.
A man must be like honey bee
And gather all he can.
To fly from blossom to blossom
A honey bee must be free,
But blossom must not ever fly
From bee to bee to bee.

Anna
h your Majesty, in my country we have a far off different attitude.
We believe that for a man to be truly happy, he must love one woman,
and one woman.

King
This idea was invented by a woman!

Anna
Oh but it's a beautiful idea. And in England we are brought up
with it. And by the time a young girl goes to her first dance-

King
Young girl? They dance also like I see tonight - in arms of men
not her husband?

Anna
Well, of course!

King
I will not permit!
