Lucrezia, Giovanni,
Gioffre and Cesare
Italian barmy army,
The Borgia Family

Our daddy was Rodrigo
I had a monstrous ego
Where he makes trouble we go
The Borgia Family

Our tale begins Renaissance Spain,
It's leaders were a shower
So I run out of patience
So began in my quest for power

I splashed my cash to all the papal cardinals in hope
That they'd be bought,
They were in short
And I became the Pope

More power than I oughta
Blood's thicker than water
Appoint my sons and daughter
To run a dynasty

With daddy as the Pope I could do as I pleased was ace,
I'd kill a man who dared
Like invade my personal space
I found a husband for Lucrezia
Rich Giovanni Sforza, do you love him?
Yes of course but love is power and money more so

Now married to the Sforza's
This opens up new doorsas
They world bows down before us
The Borgia/Sforza family

Yes, and while we're at it we will marry son Gioffre
Aged twelve but so what soon will be
The Borgia/Sforza and the Naples family

When the Sforza family
Eventually bores ya
With just annul the marriage
If he refuses to divorce ya

Don't I get a say?
Don't fret, for you another man I'll get
Alfonzo of Aragon
I like him this could go on and on!

You like him I've gone off him
His pretty face makes me wince
You killed him!
Yeah I'm the model for
Machiavelli's Prince

Giovanni run the army but Cesare said
No way! I'll kill you if you cross me
I might kill you anyway
I am the mostest powerfulest, evilest of all
As long as dad's alive
There's not a single chance I'll fall

Huh aaaaah!
Awww nooo

We suddenly lost status
It seemes the whole world hate us
They excommunicate us
The Borgia Family

R.I.P.

    *talking to last person*

    I agree, but while we're on the subject of bad grammar, in your context it should be 'too', not 'to'.

    Just to say.
