Lyrics

The jester stays to play the fool
Marooned high on the judge's stool
With naught but loons for him to rule
Bewails his heart betrayed him cruel

The object of his jaundiced eye
Having wept a sea is quite wrung dry
But promises that by and by
Her grief demands another try

Could it be that all our love's in vain?

In deference to this sad affair
The minstrel deigns to woo the pair
He sets his mask of mock despair
And turns this melancholy air

In sympathy the Minstrel sighs
Of lovers who now love despise
Who swore in spite it spurned they'd die
To this melancholy lullaby
