In the trade of Jester

(Jauvet)

Strophe:
In the trade of jester, we’re fools that play our part.

In an act sworn by folklore, where the lines are made by heart.

Ref:
Getting gold from the nobles and mocking from yey all.
But we drink with the greatest warriors and we dance in every hall.

Strophe:
We travel through the countries. We go from town to town.
We’re the sworn kings of jester. But we never worn a crown.

Ref:
Getting gold from the nobles and mocking from yey all.
But we drink with the greatest warriors and we dance in every hall.

Strophe:
I never had a family. Nor have I had a wife. It’s a high cost of living.
It’s the price I pay for life.

Ref:
Getting gold from the nobles and mocking from yey all.
But we drink with the greatest warriors and we dance in every hall.

Strophe:
We meet the fairest ladies but we never had a chance.
So we play our bagpipes as the common people dance.

Ref:
Getting gold from the nobles and mocking from yey all.
But we drink with the greatest warriors and we dance in every hall.

Strophe:
To die without a nickel is a scare for anyone.
So we work until our last day and we die like common man.

Ref:
Getting gold from the nobles and mocking from yey all.
But we drink with the greatest warriors and we dance in every hall.
