in the royal court the Jester speaks he cracks a joke and smiles peak the jury's glad, the king's throne it creaks the mood turns cold the day turns bleak in the last of his tries the Jester cries "I motion for commotion" and the courtroom flies the guards run in order they seek but it turns out they're way too weak they grab the clown call him a freak and cover his mouth but can't stop the leak in the last of his tries the Jester cries "I motion for commotion" and the kingdom flies the Jester's mess is not unique the king's young wife has a nice physique so funny the man that turned his cheek the king had more then a critique in the last of his tries the Jester cries "I motion for commotion" and the kingdom flies

blue consumes the night and day breaks slowly from left to right the sun it glows so warm the breeze cools the air somewhere flies a kite and underneath the children put up quite a fight on fields once used for war time makes them unaware this is a song about peace this is a song about peace my friend this is a song about peace and I reach my hand to mend the strong feel contrite you can speak strongly with it sounding light pleas of the injured believe the sounds there hearing the sounds might they can move the mountains no matter their height it might just appear when we don't have a spare this is a song about peace this is a song about peace my friend this is a song about peace and I reach my hand to lend
