*Dwarf King*
You're not our real son-
Give up this fantasy-
You're on the tall side
No escape from reality -
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see -
Isn't the ceiling, just a bit close to you?
Carrot dear, it's time to go,
Don't you see the roof's too low?
You've outgrown the mine now, Time to take the road to -destiny-,

Minty, I'm leaving here,
They are sending me away,
I'll be going any day;
Minty, I will miss you so
But I'm off to be a man, within the Watch -
Minty, ooo,
Didn't mean to make you cry
I'll write to you when I get to Ankh-Morepork -
Carry on, carry on, as if it doesn't really matter-
Off now, my time has come,
My Protective on my head-
Should it be elsewhere instead?
Goodbye everybody -I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and start anew -
Ankh-Morepork, ooo-
It seems so far away,
But still I think it could be where I 'm needed -

l see a little silhouetto of a thing
Nobby Nobbs, Nobby Nobbs can he really be quite human?
Fred Colon and the Captain - what on earth is happening here?
Fabricate, Fabricate,
Fabricate, Fabricate
Fabricate Diem Pvnk - Protect and Serve -
But I'm just a new boy and nobody knows me -
But I have a rule book, know how it should be -
The laws and ordinances of the city -

*Vimes & Carrot*
Easy come easy go , you have to let them go -
It's the law! No, -, we will not let them go -let them go -
It's the law!! We will not let them go-let them go
It's the law! will not let them go-let them go
Will not let them go - let them go
Will not let them go - let them go
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -

Corporal Carrot, Corporal Carrot, Corporal Carrot let them go
Vetinari has some scathing words to say, to me, to me
to me -

So you think you can get drunk leave things to rot -
So you think you lay there and act like a sot -
Oh Captain - Can't let this happen Captain -
You've gotta get up - You've gotta take charge of things now -
Yes it really matters -,
Anyone can see,
The city needs a Night Watch - The city needs a police force to be free,

Just leave it to the Night Watch

(gong sound of salute as fist hits breast plate over heart)
