Enter Shikari – The Jester lyrics

Simmer down ladies and gentlemen, simmer down.
You're acting rather irresponsibly right now.
Damn you all...

Hold your horses, steady now,
Cause we're floating precariously and therefore
Furthermore frivolously
On tectonic plates.
And everything we stand on and everything we stand for
Is rather unstable right now.
So I think I'll kill some time and have you done medium rare,
But I think I'll tease my pallet with some crudites
Just to prepare.
You see we've had a joker in the pack now for quite some time
So I reckon it's just about time to roast this swine.

This is a crock of shit I refuse to be fed!
So knuckle down and fetch his head!
Can it sunshine, bottle it up you ponce!
Then knock me up a dish with some vol-au-vonts.

Now I think we should take a leaf from the romans book! (throw it up, throw it up!)
Now I think we should take a leaf from the romans book! (throw it up, throw it up!)
Let's throw it up, and start again!
We'll throw it up, and start again!

Nicely does it now...
Target locked!
Cop a load of this one!

That was great, my compliments to the chef.
I'm very satisfied.
I'll be sure to dine here again, fine cuisine.
The stuffed cheeks were very agreeable.
All in all a splendid spread.
