All the King’s Horses

All the King’s Horses
(Difford/Tilbrook)

He’s ordering double shots tonight
He thinks he’s single he could be right
He seeks no trouble while he’s around
The king of love wears half a crown

He’s looking anxious and turning red
And hears the clicking castanets
But there’s no dancer when he looks around
The king of love wears half a crown

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put the young king back together again
He shouts at the jukebox then falls to the ground
Tonight the young king wears half of his crown

Down from the barstool he tries to climb
Putting his legs down one at a time
What a palaver, what one more round?
The king of love wears half a crown

Out of the hotel gulping the air
The extra-strong mints drop everywhere
Asleep at the wheel, what’s this she’s found?
The king of love wears half a crown

All The King's Horses
