The Mustard Musketeers

Lyrics (fan transcription):

the mustard musketeers
travelled the world calming the fears
of the ladies in waiting
twas a glorious time
swords and swoons and magic harpoons
and white horseback riding

the mustard musketeers
huffed and puffed til they puffed away
everyone's sorrows
then they rode away
into directionless dust and no one could say
where they'd end up tomorrow

the time went by and
they got older
skies got hotter and
days got colder
it's paper or plastic...

so the mustard musketeers
scaled their last castle wall and went in
one went in dressed like a priest
one went as a gardner
and one went in as a flower
