What fate decrees, will come to pass.
No, matter what your creed or class,
thought we may struggle and protest
She's adamant that she knows best
and will not change her mind alas.
What fate decrees.

Fate may be right, fate may be wrong
we have no choice but go along.
Fate will insist on her own way
We aren't allowed to disobey.
Most certainly it comes to pass
what fate decrees.
