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
Words & Music by Cliff Darby
Extended Keywords: Traded love for booze. The king gave up throne. Finally dawned on him she's gone this time for good.
