Lou Reed – Courtly Orangutans lyrics

[Hop Frog:]
Tomorrow is the seasonal ball
I propose costumes for you
and the honourable ministers to wear
[King:]
Yes
[Hop Frog:]
All dress as orangutans
All your guests will run and scream
with their mouths agape
And try to hide
And you Sire will have last laugh
For such imperial cunning

[Hop Frog:]
I will reach, restore wrong
I will torture you
I will burn you
Dead
[Tripitena:]
My prince
My prince
You light a fire .......
Burn, monkeys
Burn
