Down and out in the city
Won't you give a boy a break?
Juvenile on trial before committee
Taken all he can take
(Taken all he can take)

But the king shall have his vengeance
Especially on the poor
Some say, "Preaching to convert him"
Me, I'm not too sure

Spring she comes and spring she teases
Brings summer winds and summer breezes
Blow through your hair till autumn leaves us
When autumn leaves us, oh how winter freezes

And the child is still breathing
With the beating of the heart
(With the beating of the heart)
Some say, "We are equal"
Some a million miles apart

Oh my God
Oh my God

But the king shall have his vengeance
While the queen she represents the innocent
And the child so dependent
But the seasons conquer all

Spring she comes and spring she teases
Brings summer winds and summer breezes
Blow through your hair till autumn leaves us
When autumn leaves, oh how winter freezes
Oh how winter freezes

But the king shall have his vengeance
Especially on the poor
Some say, "Preaching to convert him"
Me, I'm not so sure
