DONKEYSKIN

What did I see? My empty eyes saw only memory
I had watched you, but was blind to blossoming maturity
until a pretty miniature showed me
showed to me your face anew
If you could know the pain I've known
while you in charm and grace have grown
my one, my only pretty daughter
come and share this lonely throne with me

my one, my only pretty daughter
come and share this lonely throne with me
tell me what you wish, you shall have it
call the royal tailor, sew a dress that's fit
the sky, the moon, the sun, these things will clothe you
the sky, the moon, the sun, let me behold you
tell me daughter, do you have another wish?
my donkey's skin? but who has put you to it?
what do I care, this gold is shit, you shall have your wish
I will skin my banker for you
