In the Trade of Jester

Written and Performed by the Jesters of Jauvet

Lyrics:

In the trade of jester, we’re fools that play our part
In an act sworn by folklore, where the lines are made by heart

Gettin’ gold from the nobles and mockin’ from ye all, but we drink with the greatest warriors, and we dance in every hall

We travel through the countries, we go from town to town
We’re the sworn kings of jester but we’ve never worn a crown

Gettin’ gold from the nobles and mockin’ from ye all, but we drink with the greatest warriors, and we dance in every hall

I’ve never had a family, nor have I had a wife
It’s a high cost of living, it’s the price I pay for life

Gettin’ gold from the nobles and mockin’ from ye all, but we drink with the greatest warriors, and we dance in every hall

We meet the fairest ladies, but we never had a chance
So we play our bagpipes as the common people dance

[“Bagpipe” solo]

To die without a nickle is a scare for anyone,
So we work until our last day, and we die like common man

Gettin’ gold from the nobles and mockin’ from ye all, but we drink with the greatest warriors, and we dance in every hall
Yes, we drink with the greatest warriors, and we dance in every hal
