The Duchess of the abbey

In the labyrinth of the rooms of the abbey

The Duchessis in the drawing room drinking tea

Stick to the rules they said, and obey:

 

THE duchess masks  her tears through a gleam so happy

The smiling, the waving, the bowing, for all to see

In the labyrinth of the rooms of the abbey.

 

She writes to her forbidden lover Sammy

Questioning the meaning of life, what it means to be or not to be

Stick to the rules they said, and obey

 

The Duchess is served by a maid so tatty

A middle aged woman who’s never seen the sea

In the labyrinth of the rooms of the abbey

 

The Duchess’s corset is strung so tight, breathing hurts badly

Trapped in the walls of wealth longing to be free

Stick to the rules they said, and obey

 

She looked out the window and sighed sadly

Watching for her dear lover together to flee

In the labyrinth of the rooms of the abbey

Stick to the rules they said, and obey.
