PASTE SONG PREFACE HERE
It seems like only yesterday,
I was banished out of court.
Exiled from my native land,
I ended up in yours.
There wasn’t a soul who knew me there,
A stranger to your shore.
But Pirate luck was with me there,
Then riches came galore.
And now I’m going back again,
to dear Meridies.
My “friends” will meet me on the pier,
with pitchforks, knives, and stakes.
All their faces I’ve almost forgot,
I’ve been so long away.
But the Constable will introduce them all,
and this, to me, he’ll say..
“Shake hands with your Uncle Mikey Maloy”
“Who you swindled his estate.”
“And here’s the girl you left to hang”
“when her rent was late.”
“Remember the Riley’s old milk goats,”
“well they are no more..”
“And half the town is convinced right now,”
“that all the little goats are yours.”
“Most of the trees in Meridies,”
“have gotten a disease..”
“and the cats and dogs have given us,”
“a double dose of fleas.”
“We went to war with Axemoor,”
“and it’s rumored to be true,”
“that you sold both Meridian thrones,”
“for 20 gold dubloons.”
“To make amends to the Populace”
“would take a million days”
“You’re as welcome as the Plague today”
“in good Meridies”
