    Allen Sherman said it best:

    Louis the Sixteenth was the King of France in 1789.

    He was worse than Louis the Fifteenth.

    He was worse than Louis the Fourteenth.

    He was worse than Louis the Thirteenth.

    He was the worst since Louis the First.

    King Louis was living like a king, but the people were living rotten.

    So the people, they started an uprising which they called the French Revolution, and of course you remember their battle cry, which will never be forgotten:

    (small piano intro):

    You went the wrong way, Old King Louie.

    You made the population cry.

    'Cause all you did was sit and pet

    With Marie Antoinette

    In your place at Vesailles.

    And now the country's gone kablooie.

    So we are giving you the air.

    That oughta teach you not to

    Spend all your time fooling 'round

    At the Folies Bergere.

    If you had been a nicer king,

    We wouldn't do a thing,

    But you were bad you must admit.

    We're gonna take you and the Queen

    Down to the guillotine,

    And shorten you a little bit.

    You went the wrong way, Old King Louie.

    And now you ain't got far to go.

    Too bad you won't be here to see

    That great big Eiffel Tower,

    Or Brigitte Bardot.

    To you King Louie we say fooey.

    You disappointed all of France.

    But then what else could we expect

    Fro a king in silk stockings

    And pink satin pants.

    You filled you stomach with chop suey.

    Also crepe suzettes and steak.

    And when they told you wife Marie

    That nobody had bread, she asaid

    "Let 'em eat cake."

    We're gonna take you and the Queen

    Down to the guillotine,

    It's somewhere in the heart of town.

    And when that fella's through

    With what he's gonna do,

    You'll have no place to hang your crown.

    You came the wrong way, Old King Louie.

    Now we must put you on the shelf.

    That's why the people are revolting, 'cause Louie,

    You're pretty revolting yourself!
