I can sing a song of sixpence
Or however much you like
I can sing a song to make you feel like
Cheating on your wife.
When I’m finished you’ll find out
Exactly what your life’s about
And your pockets inside out.

Well I’m just an old romantic
Who is in love with make believe
Life has taught me that the more you want
The more you have to weave
Where the wine and laughs are flowing
That’s exactly where I’ll be
And I’m always the last to leave.

Don’t misunderstand me,
Wait before you turn and walk away
I’m not a bad man
I’m just feeling kind of cynical today.

When I’m dining in society
I use my royal name.
Well your wife would just adore
My little chateau on the Seine.
But before we all retire
To my villa on the hill
Well would you mind to pay the bill?

If you need a friendly shoulder
I’m your best friend in the world
If your feel are feeling cold
I know a very friendly girl
Well I never had a brother
Who was half as good to me
You’re like my second family.


No, no, no, don’t misunderstand me!
