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 woooman 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 I 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 
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
