The crowds would cheer

The streets all packed

People appear

Adore this great act

The grand parade

At noon everyday

All the accolades

Like a loony charade

All diamonds and gold

All the power you stole

To fill the deep hole

Gotta forfeit the soul

King James and the Unicorn

Had it all but you wanted more

Taken from his mother

At such a young age

Who’d ever blame him

For filling with rage?

At the sight of the joy

Of simplicity’s reign

Instead he’d wage war

On the peasants and lame

King James and the Unicorn

Had it all but you wanted more

The muddy river

In armored feet

Though he’d quiver

He shan’t dare speak

The clouds rolled in

The lightning shot

There stood the horned one

Calm as a rock

(unicorn theme - ah ah ah)

James’ wizarding axe

Took one great swing

All came together;

King and the lightning

Prophecy complete

He conquered the beast

Hornless common white steed

You thief!

King James and the Unicorn

Had it all but you wanted more

The hooves kicked hard

Right in the face

Knocked the king out cold

Then it galloped away

When James came to

His sight was lost

Magic horn gone too

An extinction, the cost
