Do you remember Knights of old
Whose stories in tales were often told; of crusades to places in foreign lands
To fight for pots of gold and crosses
To give as presents to Princesses; in an attempt to win their hands.
They would joust for ma lady upon their horse.
Wave their white flag to start the course.
With lance in hand they'd fight their opponent.
Last one standing would be created; Knight of the Day and duly celebrated.
The Knight of the Day would be presented to His Majesty the King
The Knight of the Day would be awarded with a ring; to put on the hand of a Princess of his choice.
One day a young lad not yet Knighted stepped up to the mark.
Mounted his horse and waved his white flag.
A young lad intent on his own crusade.
He fought every Knighted opponent they sent his way.
And a jubilee celebrated his wins of the day.
He felt, the maiden will be mine,
It won't be long and fine clothes, food and wine will all be mine.
I'll sit at the top table with the King dutifully accept the diamond ring and the hand of his daughter in marriage.
We will arrive to church in a crystal carriage.
Everyone will be rejoicing in our marriage, flags will be waving, it will be very grand, perhaps even a big brass band.
We will be married Inside a very grand church with a very big steeple.
Our marriage will be blessed in front of all the people.
We will live long and prosper, I'll be a good husband, the Princess a good wife, we will have lots of children and a life of no strife.
We will be happy, loving and gay a family who knows how to play.
We will work and travel the Kingdom always by each others side.
We will be the envy of people far and wide.
Live in castles in the countryside.
Have our own horses and colours, and hold jousts in the grounds, looking for the next Knight to be found.
Alas it was not to be, the lad woke up it was all a dream.
He had fallen asleep on the beach, and was now covered in ice cream.
He woke with a start and declared I may not be Knight of the Day today; but one day I swear I will marry my Princess and I will give her a diamond ring, we will live a dream and have three children and fine things.
I will feel like a Knight tall and proud as i declare my love for my wife and that to me seems a fair prize.
