    (The) Strawbs - "The Battle"

    "When the anxious King began to fail,
    As many thought he might,
    The Queen ran screaming round the walls,
    And urged the men to fight,
    The Bishops' men were tiring,
    As the afternoon drew late,
    And the King's men lowered the drawbridge,
    And poured out through the gate."

    Also the B-side to that single - 2 Whom It May Concern: "2 whomever it may concern, you must come to your senses. There are no kings on this earth - only Princes" (although less of a 'song', really - more a medley of tracks from / promo for the accompanying album)
