"Raging in the Plague Age" as written by and Harrison Haynes Seth Jabour....
I used to hold the biggest balls
Deep inside my castle walls
Spend my nights with concubine
Wasted, unchaste, drunk on blood red wine
Being the king was pretty cool
I'd have to say that ruling ruled
And I'd be in throne still
Had I not one day fallen ill

I spit and I coughed
My vision went soft too
And my chest got tight
My court, they surrounded me
They gagged and bounded me
And threw me out into the night

Out in the mud I sadly sighed
The waiting crowd laid and died
There came a noise boisterous
From down in the cloisters
And I heard them call the cry;

"Draw up the drawbridge, draw down the blinds
Everyone inside is getting high tonight
Waiting for the plague to move on
No one's getting sober till the liquors all gone"

The bra in the candelabra, the panties on the paintings,
the Monks have tapped their finest cask,
and the Nuns are into fainting. They sing,

I hold my breath, you hit my chest
I hold my breath, you hit my chest
I hold my breath, you hit my chest
I hold my breath, you hit my chest

You stumble from the arms of the one
What made you, didn't you?
Fumble to the palms of the one
What pays you, didn't you?
Stumble from the arms of the one
What made you, didn't you?
Fumble to the palms of the one
What pays you, didn't you?

    General CommentI used to hold the biggest balls,
    deep inside my castle walls.
    Spent my nights with concubines,
    wasted, unchaste, drunk on blood red wine.

    Being the kind was pretty cool.
    I'd have to say that ruling ruled.
    I'd be enthroned still
    had I not one day fallen ill.
    I spit and I coughed. My vision went soft.
    My chest got tight.
    My court, they surrounded me, they gagged and bounded me,
    and threw me out into the night.

    Out in the mud I sadly sighed
    and waited quietly to die.
    There came a noise, boisterous
    from down at the cloisters
    and I heard the Cardinal cry:

    "Draw up the drawbridge. Draw down the blinds.
    Everyone inside is getting high tonight.
    Waiting for the Plague to move on,
    no one's getting sober 'till the liquor's all gone."

    The bra in the candelabra, the panties on the paintings,
    the Monks have tapped their finest cask,
    and the Nuns are into fainting. They sing,
    "I hold my breath you hit my chest."

    You stumble from the arms of the one what made you, didn't you?
    You fumble to the palms of the one what paid you, didn't you?

    General CommentShould it be "stumbled" and "fumbled" - in the past tense? It just doesn't seem to make sense in the present tense since "didn't you?" is in the past.
