King Henry the Eighth was a Rabbit

There was a rumour
Soon dismissed to be a lie
I’m here to tell the truth
Present to verify
They say he was a man
They said he was a rabbit

Henry the Eighth, you know.

Rumours spread
He had a tail
He had whiskers, too

It was all very hushed up.

Conversations overheard and
Keyholes left uncovered
A child chancing upon the king
Seeing the truth, the animal truth.

King Henry the Eighth was a rabbit, you see.

An animal, a beast, a wild creature
If you wondered why he wasn’t ever seen in public,
well,

that’s why.

And his wives!
If you were engaged to a rabbit
You wouldn’t last long either.

They faked their own deaths and left the country.
It made Henry famous for all the wrong reasons.

There was a rumour
Soon dismissed to be a lie
I’m here to tell the truth
Present to verify

They say he was a man,

but he was a rabbit.

You don’t believe me?

Tell me,
have you ever
did you ever
will you ever
see him with your own eyes?

Thought not.
