King Robert


I used to rule the world

Armies rose when I gave the word

Now in the evening I drink alone

Think of life I used to know

I used to roll the dice

Feel the fear in my enemies eyes

Listen as the crowd would sing:

"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key

Next the walls were closed on me

And I discovered that my castles stand

Upon pillars of gold, and that it all bends

I hear the bells of all septs are ringing

And Silent Sisters in choirs are singing

Be my mirror my hammers hangs

Scattered and idle my armies stand

For some reason I can’t explain

Once you know there was never, never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

(IOhhh)

It was the wicked and wild wind

Blew down the doors to let me in.

Shattered kingdoms and the sound of drums

People could not believe what I’d become

Hungry Bloody Lannisters wait

For my head on a silver plate

Just a puppet on a lonely string

Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear the bells of all septs are ringing

And Silent Sisters in choirs are singing

Be my mirror my hammers hangs

Fattened and idle my armies now stand

For some reason I can’t explain

Once you know there was never, never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)
