      The Decemberists - The Infanta Música y Letra

      Here she comes in her palanquin 
      On the back of an elephant 
      On a bed made of linen and sequins and silk 
      All astride on her father's line 
      With the king and his concubines 
      And her nurse with her pitchers of liquors and milk 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      
      Among five score pachyderm 
      Each canopied and passengered 
      Sit the duke and the duchess' luscious young girls 
      Within sight of the baronness 
      Seething spite for this live largesse 
      By her side sits the baron 
      Her barrenness barbs her 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      
      A phalanx on camelback 
      Thirty ranks on a forward tack 
      Followed close, their shiny bright standards a-waving 
      While behind in their coach, in fours 
      Ride the wives of the king of Moors 
      And the veiled young virgin, the prince's betrothed 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      
      And as she sits upon her place 
      Her innocence laid on her face 
      From all atop the parapets blow a multitude of coronets 
      Melodies rhapsodical and fair 
      And all our hearts afire 
      The sky ablaze with cannon fire 
      We all raise our voices to the air 
      To the air... 
      
      And above all this falderal 
      On a bed made of chaparral 
      She is laid, a coronal placed on her brow 
      And the babe, all in slumber dreams 
      Of a place filled with quiet streams 
      And the lake where her cradle was pulled from the water 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta 
      And we'll all come praise the infanta
