King Of France
The clairvoyant was at the fair
and fortune telling was her game,
she could see into the future
predicting fortune and fame.
She called him to her tent
he must have caught her eye,
“come over here young man,
don’t be nervous or shy. “
She was looking into a crystal ball
and seemed to go in to a trance,
“you’ve lived before she whispered,
you once were a king of France.”
She forecasted great things ahead
one day he’d be a well known celebrity,
own a mansion in the countryside
and always be rich and healthy.
At the end she asked for money
as she didn’t do it for free,
and the reason she was so expensive ?
was because she was the famous Gypsy Rose Lee.
Well what a waste of cash that was
as none of what she said came true,
and he found out later she was a con woman
she was plain old Elsie Crump from Crewe !
