Here are the lyrics to this song:
(Song #3, “The Murder of Gonzago.”)
Player/Singer: Gonzago was a noble king who had a wonderful queen!
They shared a love that was as true as you have ever seen.
They had a little darling prince; a handsome boy was he.
And sometimes they would all sit down and have a cup of tea!
And have a cup of tea.
Gonzago had a brother and this brother was quite mean.
He hated his big brother and he had a thing for the queen.
Gonzago had no way to know that he had much to fear
But when he fell asleep he got some poison in his ear!
Some poison in his ear.
(The King stands looking horrified.)
The Queen she acted quite upset because her king was dead.
But after he was in the grave, the queen was soon to wed.
She fell in love with you-know-who before the month was done.
They danced upon Gonzago’s grave and had a ton of fun!
And had a ton of fun!
