Said the king, “When I get poor
I won’t have to live in this castle no more.
I’ll live in a cottage down by the sea
And all that remains of my kingdom will be
A patch of grass and a big oak tree.”

Said the king, “When I get poor
And live in my cottage down on the shore
Where knights and nobles can’t bother me,
My subjects will be a gnat and a flea
And they surely won’t plead on bended knee.”

Said the king, “When I get poor
And don’t have to do the same old chore
I’ll have no gold but time is free.
My simple life I’ll live with glee.
I always wanted dirt floors, you see.”

Said the king, “When I get poor
And live in a cottage with an earthen floor
I’ll spend my days beside my queen
And it will be nice (she would agree)
To sit around having crumpets and tea.”

He would grow his own tea leaves of course.

the narrow-mindedness of the supermarket generation is appalling

Well.... I cook but I don't know how to make crumpets. I make bread but I don't know how to grow yeast. Is that an ingredient in crumpets?
