Слова песни Thin Lizzy — King’s Vengeance

Down and out in the city
Won't you give a boy a break
Juvenile on trial before committee
Taken all he can take

But the king shall have his vengeance
Especially on the poor
Some say preaching to convert him
Me I'm not too sure

Spring she comes and spring she teases
Brings summer winds and summer breezes
Blow through your hair till autumn leaves us
When autumn leaves us, oh how winter freezes

And the child is still breathing
With the beating of a heart
Some say we are equal
Some a million miles apart

But the king shall have his vengeance
While the Queen she represents the innocent
And the child so dependent
But the seasons conquer all

Spring she comes and spring she teases
Brings summer winds and summer breezes
Blow through your hair till autumn leaves us
When autumn leaves, oh how winter freezes

But the king shall have his vengeance
Especially on the poor
Some say preaching to converted
Me I'm not so sure

The lyrics touch upon the concept of equality and the vast differences between individuals. The king’s vengeance is contrasted with the representation of innocence by the queen and the dependence of a child. Overall, the song explores themes of social inequality and the cyclical nature of seasons.
