Ellis Paul – Abiola lyrics
In a far and distant country
Lived a strange and a fearsome beast
They said he killed the farmers' cattle
And laid waste to the farmers' fields
Laid waste to the farmers' fields

So the King sent out his criers
And they roamed from town to town
Pledging a plot of land and his daughter's hand
To him who laid the Monster down
To him who laid the Monster down

La la la la li da da
La la la la la la la la la la

Now Abiola, the shepard's daughter
Hadn't heard of the King's decree
She never paid much heed to rumors
And she headed out into the fields
She headed out into the fields

When she came across the creature
She could not believe her eyes
Cause out of all the things she had ever seen
She'd never seen a monster cry
Seen a monster cry

The Monster said to the young girl
I never did those evil deeds
But the King has tried to blame me
And no one dares to not believe
No one dares to not believe"

He wants the pastures for his horses
He wants the orchards for his thieves
And if the farmers come to fear me
Then the King gets what he needs
Yea, the King gets what he needs

La la la la li da da
La la la la la la la la la la

Abiola said to the Monster
"We are going into town
And till then we'll cry
From the rooftops high
And we'll spread the truth around
Yea, we'll spread the truth around"

Well, the children all believed them
But the grownups took their time
To break their fear
Though it was clear
That the fearsome beast was kind
Oh, the fearsome beast as kind

Then the people stormed the castle
And they drove the old King out
And for her bravery, truth, and kindness
They gave Abi the crown
Yea, they gave Abiola the crown
