King Without A Crown lyrics

Welcome to the great republic

Guess i should show you round

Where once i was a king

And now i am a clown





The love that we once shared

Made a king of me

But now you're gone... but now you're gone

All i face is poverty



...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Oh i'm a king without a crown

...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Oh i'm a king without a crown



Hell hath no fury

Like a woman scorned

But heaven don't boast - no heaven don't boast

The jewel - the pretty jewel i just pawned



Every cloud has a silver lining

Every dog has its day

Oh but i guess the sun stopped shining

On the day you went away



...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Oh i'm a king without a crown

...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Oh i'm a king without a crown

...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Yes i'm a king - king! king without a crown



Bathed in former glory

Deposed from my throne

How do i get to tell my story?

When all get's your answerphone...

But you ain't home



With the love you gave

I felt like royalty

But now you're face to face - face to face

With one ex-member of the aristocracy



...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Oh i'm a king without a crown

...king without a heart

...king without a hope

...king without a woman baby

Oh i'm a king without a crown



There's no need to feel down

Yeah just take a look around

You'll see a man who's just a man

Nothing more

A king without a crown
