  • I saw the stars in your eyes
    And I knew it was puppy school love

    You saw the twinkle in mine
    Then we both knew it was time to hold our breath
    And run and get committed

    We got lost in a sea of love and lust
    With a galaxy of trust
    We were soon committed
    To each other like a mussel in a clam
    To the movies to the mall glued together hand in hand

    And we walked and ran through love land
    Everything was fine
    Until my baby took me for my very last dime

    Bang, bang, shoot me dead
    Thought my baby loved me
    But I`d been mislead

    My, my she sucked me dry
    Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

    Once I was a King
    Now I`m wrapped around her finger
    Like a diamond ring

    The engagement ring
    The wedding ring
    The church bells ring
    And the suffering

    Understand I`m a man
    Who believes in the glory of love
    You`re a fool and a sucka
    True love is the light shining bright
    From the Heavens, The Heavens above
    You cold motherfucker

    I believe, I believe it is better to trust
    Even when I`m wrong
    Be careful you`re my brother
    Than to let my fear drive me
    From the home where I have belonged

    She was my Queen to protect and serve
    Then she threw me a curve
    Skam skimmin` gold diggin`
    Kick me to the curb

    Bang, bang, shoot me dead
    Thought my baby loved me
    But I`d been mislead

    My, my she sucked me dry
    Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

    Once I was a King
    Now I`m wrapped around her finger
    Like a diamond ring

    The engagement ring
    The wedding ring
    The church bells ring
    And the suffering

    I know what they say on the street
    She`s a cheat and a thief and a liar
    And everybody knows it
    But she`s my light and my love and my hope
    And my only desire
    You`re anger can`t control it

    She broke the bank, then she took my car
    That chick stole my heart

    Should have known from the start
    Bang, bang, shoot me dead
    Thought my baby loved me
    But I`d been mislead

    My, my she sucked me dry
    Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

    Once I was a King
    Now I`m wrapped around her finger
    Like a diamond ring

    The engagement ring
    The wedding ring
    The church bells ring
    And the suffering Writer/s: STUART PHILLIPS
