Original video
Disregard for how and where and with whom
You amuse yourself encourages bad behavior

The Duke, as was appropriate, held himself in high regard
And therefore considered himself in need of encouragement
He expected the people of Madrid render him this service
And as convenient setting for the achievement of this end
He established the Cabaret of the Seven Devils
This is what happened:

Sick and tired of what passed for diversion at the Carnival Palace of Don Diego de Cordona
I'm sick and tired of what passed for diversion at the Carnival Palace of Don Diego de Cordona
So-so-so lucky to have him there in the first place
And he certainly was in the First Place-
The Duke of Medina Sidonia, himself made up his own mind

When he must go back to the 'capital',
Which was soon, "And which I hate,"
He would take his exercise in the town.

The evening in question was a moonless Monday
The evening in question was a moonless Monday
And carrying his own purse
The evening in question was a moonless Monday
And carrying his own purse
And carrying his own purse

With only one valet (only one-but by far his best swordsman)
The Duke marched into the least auspicious tavern,
Tossed his silver bag at whom he assumed was the proprietor
And said, or barked, I mean,
"This establishment will now serve my purposes.
And I should like it to be known as the Cabaret of the Seven Devils."
