Wenceslas Is Square Enough For Most

A revolution, velvet-lined,       [Apsley ]

In fourteen shades of gray       [Roland ]

Shall not tear impugn this counting house       [asdf ]

Or halt Kris Kringle's sleigh       [F ]

A revolution, sweetly timed       [Beefy ]

In umpteen shades of puce       [Roland ]

Shall not prevent these countless mice       [Beefy ]

Who pulp us for our juice       [Roland ]

Envoi        [(trad) ]

Let us praise the status quo       [Roland ]

As to the guillotine we go       [Beefy ]
