    Big brown eyes
    On my knees, mama please
    I'm a regal man

    I'll do what I can
    To take you off to the promised land

    I'm a sun king, baby
    Let me take you by the hand
    Sun king, honey
    We can rule across the land

    I'm a sun king, baby
    With you, I'll share my throne
    A sun king, honey
    I can't make it on my own, no

    Hey, look out, little missy's about
    Ripping up the town, yeah
    Honey, I can't tie you down
    Woman, you make me frown

    Long legged lady with a black dress on
    On my knees, mama please
    I'm a regal man

    To t-t-take you to the promised land

    Cult children in the house of the dawn, yeah

    Time was wasted 'cause it's gone too fast

    I see the sun begin to shine
    I see the sun begin to shine
