“Temple Beautiful”

Emperor Norton In The Last Year Of His Life (1880) (LYRICS)

Every set of keys is an original

Every silver lining is a curse

Anyone who's ever turned their back on me

Always ends up facing something worse

Something worse

Some kind of nightmare or some kind of curse

Miss Sally Rogers did a little dance for me

Warmed me up and down my crooked spine

Miss Sally Rogers, yes, she'll dance for anyone

She'll be yours as easily as mine

She'll be mine, Miss Sally Rogers never will be mine

So I said Run around, run around, run around, run around Sal

Run around, run around, run around, run around Sal

Sally run around

Last night it was snowing down on Market Street

This morning there's three bodies in the cold

All the love you're saving for a rainy day

Won't be enough to save your wretched soul

Save your soul

Won't be enough to save your wretched soul

Save your soul

Twenty years ago I saw the president

He rode a silver horse into the crowd

A hundred years ago they might have made him king

Without him brother where would we be now
