Narrator speaks: Once upon a time in The Land of Eight,
There stood a castle, very great.
Eight flags were waving in the air
For the King of Eight had put them there.

A muted trumpet blows: Doot,do do do do do do
Doot,do do do do do do
Doot,do do do do do do
Doot doot do

King of Eight speaks: (has the voice of Rowlf the dog)
I'm the King of Eight,
And I'm here to state
That everything here must number eight,
The guards, for instance, by the gate
Must always number exactly eight.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Muted trumpet blows again: Doot,do do...

King continues: In my castle, in back of me,
Are eight windows you can see.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

In these windows are my daughters,
Show yourselves, my dears.

(each princess calls out her number): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Each princess wears a golden crown,
With eight jewels going 'round.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

So I love eight,
Eight is great,
Eight is the number I do not...

King's messenger blurts out: WAIT!!!
Important news comes from the Queen,
A new baby! And I have seen,
That she is well, and doing fine.

King says: Good grief, that's princess number nine!!
