Come hear of Rodrick the First, the famous Coward King!
When all the way from Saltar’s mines the Ferrets came a-charging
He cowered up to the highest tower as the warning bells a-tolled
The glove was thrown, the moment come to show his true mettle,
But yellow as brass was the coward king, and never quite as bold.
On trembling shanks and soggy tail he set sail quite unsettled!
His people cried and called to him, but he left them to their sorrow.
Until his ship was sunk as stone... and he cowered down below.
