lyrics

it's a little more then loafs of bread
or wearing beanies on you head
les miserables and John val John
the royalty be gone be gone!

enlightenment has grasped its hold
and now the King needs to be told
the Americans, they won their war
could this be what we're looking for?

the debt is huge the King has said
I want to pass a tax instead
of borrowing to pay our rent
gather up the Parliament!

but Nobles came to have the vote
and opposition clearly showed
they said give the people their voice
give them more then just one choice!

The King called estates-general
they met inside a giant hall
in his mistake the third estate
they came crashing through the gate

"liberte, egalite, fratenite"
it's french to me
aristocracy is all we see
we shall end the monarchy!
