The tale of the Czar has been many times told
He had all the power. He had all the gold.

He had skills and ideas and played a mean bass
He sang killer songs - a sly look on his face

Was it fortune or fame that brought his demise?
Was it jealousy, envy, anger, or lies?

Whatever the reason, his body was found
With his head several feet away on the ground

The Czar was beheaded, that’s why he has sworn
Not to play with a capo ‘cause it makes him forlorn.
