Robin Hood - The Phony King Of England
The Phony King Of England Disney's Robin Hood (1973) Phil Harris G Oh the world will sing of an English King A thousand years from now, D And not because he passed some laws G Or had that lofty brow. G While bonny good King Richard leads The great crusade he's on, D We'll all have to slave away G For that good-for-nothin' John! G Incredible as he is inept, Whenever the history books are kept, D G They'll call him the phony king of England. D G A pox on the phony king of England! G He sits alone on a giant throne, Pretendin' he's the king, D A little tyke who's rather like G A puppet on a string, And he throws an angry tantrum if he cannot have his way... D And then he calls for Mum, while he's suckin' his thumb. G You see, he doesn't want to play. G Too late to be known as John the First, He's sure to be known as John the worst, D G A pox on that phony king of England! Lay that country on me, babe! G While he taxes us to pieces And he robs us of our bread, D King Richard's crown keeps slippin' down G Around that pointed head, Ah! But while there is a merry man in Robin's wily pack, D We'll find a way to make him pay G And steal our money back. A minute before he knows we're there... (NO CHORDS) Ol' Rob'll snatch his underwear! G D G The breezy and uneasy king of England, D The snivellin', grovellin', Measly, weasely, Blabberin', jabberin', Gibberin', jabberin', Blunderin', plunderin', Wheelin', dealin', G D G Prince John, that phony king of England, Yeah!
