Did you know someone was watching you bathe,
That spring morning on the roof?
Your husband was at war and the king had stayed behind
What did you think when the messengers knocked on your door?
When they told you that the king demanded to see you
Did your heart quake within you?
Did he wine and dine you first?
Before his took you into his bedroom?
Did you remember your husband at all?
And then you were late
And you told the king
And he called your husband back from war
Did you want to see your husband?
Did you beg him to come home for the night?
Did you yell and scream and cry and plead?
Could you feel the baby inside you move while you begged?
And then your husband went back to war
And died fighting bravely at the front
Or at least that is what they told you
And you mourned, your belly growing, stretching, pulling
And you went home with the king
And the baby died
Even though the king wept and prayed
But his younger brother lived
Do you know who your descendant will be?
