Spoilers for Season 3 of Game of Thrones TV show...


And who are you, the proud lord said
That I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat
That's all the truth I know
In a coat of gold or red
A lion still has claws
And mine are long and sharp my lord
As long and sharp as yours
And so he spoke, the Lord of Castamere,
but now the rain weeps over his hall
Without a soul to hear his cries anymore...

verse 1:

Walked up to the House of Frey, hat in hand
From another day
Broke his oath to wed a daughter, so today
They'll have a wedding to commemorate
The Tullys and the Starks' bond
King in the North, chose to follow his heart on

Broke the bread, cloaked a girl and they ate a feast
Bannermen celebrated in the evening
While the band played tunes, that the people loved to hear
Til the bedding ceremony took the bride and groom out of here

Left alone with their thoughts of the future
Thoughts of the heir to the North that's unborn
Thoughts of those passed,
Thoughts of those missing
Thoughts that's so far from that oncoming war

So the band, well it started to play a little familiar tune
A tune that Lady Stark, bugged her ear, when she knew
As Lord Frey stood, set to give his own wedding gift
Made clear who he pledged his fealty to...


verse 2:
The queen said at the wedding, with a toss of her hair
How those that come against the Lions, fare thee well
Cuz from Casterly Rock to King's Landing
With a whisper, my what a story to tell...

Your house will be forgotten, your home will be burned
Your name will be erased from the annals of time
Except a mention in a song or a legend just to warn
Any and all those who ever dared step out of line

We always pay our debts, whether silver in our hands
Or the soldiers in the field, or the ships in the port
From the North to the South to the Free Cities
More harm done with the pen and ink than a sword

So beware, 'fore they make you another example
Another head on a pike, or a name in a song
Have you ever heard the story of the King in the North
And that Red Wedding day that went over so wrong


verse 3:
And so the band stopped playing, crossbows throughout the balcony
No one was left to see, a king's ignominy
As the arrows pierced the flesh, as he fell to his knees
And his bannermen bled, and his crown was thus seized

And he crawled cross the floor, placed a hand on the stomach
Of the love that he risked his whole family for
And a son or a daughter that will never see the sunset
Never see Winterfell, never be born

While his mother pleaded, let the boy live
But the Lannisters send their regards with a knife
And a slit of her throat, as she fell and bled out
Off to join Eddard Stark there on the other side

They say the rain falls on some houses more than others
I say it falls on all, it's how you deal with the rain
And let us never forget the Rains of Castamere
Tell it to your sons and daughters,
Let us sing it again...
