Should time allow us to describe our prowess, it would be quite hard to overrate, for we are the king of the boudoir, old thing, and the king doesn't like to wait.

One tryst with me, and you'll be spinning like a gyroscope. One tryst with me, and you'll be Pope.

Should modesty allow us to describe our prowesslessnesslessness, 'twould be quite hard to overstate, for we are the king of the boudoir, it's true, and the king doesn't like to wait.

One kiss from me and you'll be overjoyed and overawed. One kiss from me and you'll see God. For we are the king of the boudoir, we are, and the king doesn't like to wait.

    General CommentNoticing the royal "We" is essential to this song making any sense whatsoever.

    And 17th century would be more accurate, you mean Louis XIV (well, he's kinda both). But it's more 17th century anyway since the harpsichord is such a baroque instrument and absolutism a baroque concept, and baroque is by and large more 17th century. Those aspects of it that express the same attitudes as this song were working their way towards being reacted against during the first half of the eighteenth century, and after that there was the enlightenment and classicism. But then the harpsichord was popular throughout the eighteenth century as well, just, not versailles-style absolutism like this song is evocative of.

    General CommentThe song as a whole seems designed to provide an ornate setting for "prowesslessnesslessness," a rococo gem from le mine de Merritt.
