king of dreams lyrics – company of thieves

“king of dreams”

you came along, you came along
ooh-la
wanting a whole lot of money, wanting a whole lot of fame
you’re looking strong, walking tall
ooh-la
chalking a whole lot of numbers, dropping a whole lot of name
you came along, a christian son
ooh-la
digging a whole lot of gold, raising a whole lot of game
you rambled on and said it all
ooh-la
ohh-la, la la

in the wake of ridicule with your arms raised
you’ll blame it on the other man
was a monster in his day
born to take the weight

you came along, you came along
ooh-la
wanting a whole lot of money, wanting a whole lot of fame
you’re looking strong, walking tall
ooh-la
chalking a whole lot of numbers, dropping a whole lot of name
you rambled on and said it all
ooh-la
ohh-la, la la

in the wake of ridicule with your arms raised
you’ll blame it on the other man
was a monster in his day
(he was) born to take the weight

here now- ooh look who’s on display
ooh a lion in a cage
yes sir, a rebel in his day
