"Serve the King for life you must
You have sworn and worn the white
You may think that he’s unjust
But he’s the King, he has the right”

That is what Ser Gerold said
When the King burned Rickard Stark
Now I look at him, he’s dead,
His blood flowing, red and dark

“Obey the King you must for life
You shall never forget it
Even if he abuses his wife
Or to rule he proves unfit”

That’s the voice of good Jon Darry
He said that out of the King’s door
Now this words with me I carry
And the King’s lying on the floor

“Now remember that a knight
Protects the weak and the good folk
Unjust and evil you must fight
If you should wear a white cloak”

When Ser Arthur told me that
I was serving as his squire
And that is why I couldn’t let
Aerys set the city on fire

Then Ned Stark comes rushing in
On the throne I’m sitting now
All I do is laugh and grin
I don’t care much for my vow

“Don’t worry, Stark I have no wish
To steal the sit of the Lord of Storm
For stag, falcon, wolf and fish
I’m keeping this throne safe and warm”

And now so many years have gone
I still remember that one day
When the Kingslayer I’ve become
For treason it’s the price you pay

And yet, has ever anyone
Wondered why I did it all?
Why my vows I badly shunned
To complete Aerys’s fall?

What I swore was to protect
The innocent from the worst things
It’s the least you can expect
Slaying one they called “Mad King”.
