Lyrics

WHEN A KING BECAME A CLOWN




V.1) I GOT THE LETTER FROM YOUR LAWYER JUST YESTERDAY
THAT'S WHEN IT FINALLY DAWNED ON ME
YOU'VE GONE THIS TIME TO STAY
AND IT HURTS TO KNOW, THAT I'VE FAILED US SO
AND LET OUR BABIES DOWN.
WHEN I TRADED LOVE FOR LIQUOR,
THAT'S WHEN A KING BECAME A CLOWN.

C.) NOW I'M KNOWN ON A FIRST NAME BASIS
I'M A CHARTER MEMBER HERE.
I PROVIDE THEIR ENTERTAINMENT
EVERY NIGHT WHEN I CRY IN MY BEER.
WHEN THAT JUKEBOX BRINGS YOUR MEM'RY UP
I DRINK IT RIGHT BACK DOWN.
WHEN I TRADED LOVE FOR LIQUOR
THAT'S WHEN A KING BECAME A CLOWN.

V.2) ON FRIDAY NIGHTS WHEN I DRANK MY CHECK
YOU'D SIT AT HOME AND CRY
BARELY ABLE TO AFFORD NEW SHOES
FOR JENNY AND LITTLE MIKE
AND IT KILLS ME NOW, WHEN I THINK OF HOW
I'D BOUGHT THE WHOLE HOUSE ROUNDS
WHEN I TRADED LOVE FOR LIQUOR
THAT'S WHEN A KING BECAME A CLOWN.

C.) REPEAT, TAG, END
