Born 2 Rule
Lyric to listen out for:
I was the sad one.
And I was the bad one.
I was the mad one.
And I was the fat one.

I love the people
And the people love me
So much that they restored
The English monarchy

We’re gonna paint the whole town red
With the blood of the dead
We’ll take everything that you own
And get back on our ship, and go back home
Woah, oh oh!

I drink from their skull

Pull out their teeth whole

Turn teeth into charms
Make flutes out of their arms

Lyric to listen out for:
Anyone whose lived around these parts
Or ever knew’d us
Is well aware that you should never mess
With the Tudors
