Leirin's Joys

The Simple Joys of Maidenhood soundtrack of “Camelot”

O Kypris, Sweet Kypris
It’s Lierin, remember me?
O Kypris, Sweet Kypris
I’m over here beneath this tree!

You know how faithful and devout I am
You must admit I’ve been a lamb

But Kypris, Sweet Kypris
I won’t obey you anymore
You’ve gone a bit too far
I won’t be bid and bargained for
Like beads in a bazaar
I tell you Kypris, I’ve run away
Eluded them and fled
And from now on I intend to pray
To someone else instead!

O Kypris, Sweet Kypris
Where were you when my youth was sold?
O Kypris, Sweet Kypris
Shan’t I be young before I’m old?

Where are the simple joys of maidenhood?
Where are all those sharp and dashing swords?
Where’s the knight pining so for me
He’ll challenge and then duel with me.

Oh, what are a maiden’s simple joys?
I don’t want the normal life a maiden should.
Why can’t I rescue HIM in the wood?
Two knights should never tilt for me!
Let only my blood be spilt for me!
Aren’t these are the simple joys of maidenhood?

So I shall not be on a pedestal,
Worshiped and competed for,
Not be carried off, or even worse,
Cause a little war.
Those sweet, gentle pleasures are gone for good.
And if I must I’ll begin a feud for me.

Kith cannot kill their kin for me
Since I have fled where they cannot seek
No longer harmless, convivial, or meek
I’ve changed the simple joys of maidenhood!
