Roger Waters

"“Flushed with Wine...”"

RINGMASTER
Flushed with wine Marie Antoinette
Casts down her red, white and blue rosette
An impetuous and dangerous vignette

OFFICER
And then with her harming little shoe
She grinds the precious symbol underfoot
What a lark, what a hoot
The regiments all follow suit
The regiments

CHORUS
The regiments

OFFICER
The regiments

CHORUS
The regiments

OFFICER & CHORUS
The regiments all follow suit

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Red, white and blue and they all follow suit

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
Red, white and blue and they all follow suit

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
In Paris there is nothing to eat

CHORUS
Not a crust, not a crumb
Not a grain of wheat

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
They think that starving may weaken the man in the street

CHORUS
Not a chance, they're used to the heat

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
In Versailles they drink wine and dine on freshly baked bread

CHORUS
The peac*ck sprawls upon his bed

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
We choke on the bones of swallowed pride instead

CHORUS
Soon they'll see what a feast they've made

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
A bitter feast

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHORUS
For the Parisians

CHORUS
...for the Parisians

RINGMASTER
These hags, these shrews, these courtesans
These animals we call women
Have marched hear through the pouring rain
TO bring the baker home again

CHORUS
Louis protests; he cries

KING
Veto, veto! I'll give you all bread if you just let me go!

RINGMASTER
These fishwives with their babies, these animals called ladies
Will carry back home to Paris
The King, The Queen, and The Dauphin

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Versailles has loomed to the regiments' final bow

CHORUS
Versailles bloomed

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
All fawning before

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHILDREN'S CHORUS
The Austrian cow!

CHORUS
Fawning on bended knee

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
The party's over

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHILDREN'S CHORUS
Take down the marquee

CHORUS
Hang up your dancing shoes in the hanging tree

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
We'll take the baker back to Paris

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHILDREN'S CHORUS
Back to Paris

TROUBLEMAKER & MALE CHORUS
He'll make bread for the prince we decree

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST, CHILDREN'S CHORUS, & FEMALE CHORUS
The shrews, the hags and the courtesans

TROUBLEMAKER & MALE CHORUS
The animals we call women

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST, CHILDREN'S CHORUS, & FEMALE CHORUS
Will take back the King to Paris

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHILDREN'S CHORUS
The crowd now seven thousand strong

TROUBLEMAKER & MALE CHORUS
Bore the royal coach along

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHILDREN'S CHORUS
With trophies raised on pikes above

TROUBLEMAKER & MALE CHORUS
The guardsman’s heads they had cut off

TROUBLEMAKER
Adieu Versailles

MALE CHORUS
It rains, it pours, the crowd roars

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Bonjour Paris

CHORUS
Adieu Versailles

COMPANY
Bonjour Paris, adieu Versailles
