King Midas
(F. Meyer BMI Ditty Dat Music

sinners oh sinners
you’re evil and you’re doomed
tell us of your wicked ways
and satisfy our wounds
satisfy our wounds

pious one, pious one
oh do you know the way?
does your heart lead with love
is judgement in the way?
judgement in your way?

angry man, angry man
what has angered you?
may we bring forgiveness forth
for I am angry too
I am angry too

Marigold oh Marigold
what has your father done?
greed has cursed the kingdom
and into gold you’ve turned
into gold you’ve turned

King Midas, King Midas
we know you told the truth
Apollo put a jinx on you
cuz Pan piped the blues
Pan played the blues

satyr oh satyr
let’s hear your lusty song
fill the air with musty earth
of which we all belong
which we all belong.
