To give away a kingdom
A Fool what can I say
I´ll endow you my coxcomb
You have nothing left to pay
Oh Nuncle once your daughters
They are mothers to you now
You gave them the rod
As you put your breeches down
A Fool´s Tale
Fool´s Tale
1)
A tale of King Lear who was old enough a fool
To cast away his kingdom for he felt too old to rule
Goneril, Regan and Cordelia held most dear
Each to gain a third as the heritage of Lear
As the heritage of Lear

2)
Each daughter is to step forth to beguile the aging King
To tell him how they love him and so sweet their tongues did sing
Just Cordelia fell silent, she did not want to betray
Her true love by sweet lies as her sisters them did say
As her sisters them did say

KING LEAR
So young, and so untender?
CORDELIA
So young, my lord, and true.
KING LEAR
Let it be so; thy truth, then, be thy dower:
For, by the sacred radiance of the sun,
The mysteries of Hecate, and the night;
Here I disclaim all my paternal care,
Propinquity and property of blood,
And as a stranger to my heart and me
Hold thee, from this, for ever. The barbarous Scythian,
Or he that makes his generation messes
To gorge his appetite, shall to my bosom
Be as well neighbour'd, pitied, and relieved,
As thou my sometime daughter.
