Princeps, how could you deceive me? You have left your loyal comrades at the door Princeps, I could only dress myself in sorrow You have loved another country even more I thought you were different Sent to us from the periphery And, blind, I'll defend thee Covering the blight There's a dazzling light And you squeeze me, squeeze me so tight Princeps, you'll never believe me You have dozens of compadres on the phone Princeps, they don't understand why you are laughing When their pensions have been plundered And their hours cut in two They thought you were different Out of misery you'd lift them And, blind, I'll defend thee What you do is right You belong at that height But you squeeze me, squeeze me so tight
