Uradel (noun): Ancient nobility. Refers to noble families with ancestral lineage prior to the Late Middle Ages. This song basically retells the Pygmalion myth.

lyrics

The pocketbook prince is making sure his debts are paid
A fiver for the driver and a fiver for the maid
He's covering his tracks because the party is tonight
If everybody's paid off everybody is polite

But what would the king think to see his very own boy
Hobnobbing with a member of the hoi polloi?

You are cordially invited to an evening of black ties and white lies
You are cordially invited to an evening of black ties and white lies
And bright eyes with dark sides
King Cophetua's ghost is looming high
Cuz when the prince wants to impress he doesn't have to try

The pretty peasant princess smiles at everyone she sees
But little does she know she's got some spinach in her teeth
Daddy taught her all the benefits of dating in to wealth
And now she's got the finest noblepeople toasting to her health

But when she opens her mouth, trying to entertain
The king's monocle falls right into his champagne

You are cordially invited to an evening of black ties and white lies
You are cordially invited to an evening of black ties and white lies
And bright eyes with dark sides
King Cophetua's ghost is looming high
Cuz when the prince wants to impress he doesn't have to try
