The King Was In The Counting House

(Montague Ewing)

Masqueraders (Savoy Hotel Orpheans)


The King was in the counting house
The counting house, the counting house
Counting his money, wearing an artful grin

The Queen began to plead then roar
And cried once more, "Unlock this door"
The King replied, "Shan't, I'm busy, you can't come in"

When you were eating honey
Then you made me wait, it's true
For your housekeeping money
You can wait like I had to wait for you

The King was in the counting house
The counting house, the counting house
So the butcher and baker had to take IOU's
