I was your big man I was your prince charming
King on a white horse hey now look how far I’ve fallen
I tried to trick you yeah but baby you got wise
You cut me cut me right right down to size
Now I’m just a fool in Gloria’s eyes

Swore I’d get you back I was so sure
I’d get you back life I done so many times before
A little sweet talk to cover over all of the lies
You came runnin’ back but to my surprise
Well there was somethin’ gone in Gloria’s eyes

Well in the dark when it was just me and you
I asked the question that I knew the answer to
Is that a smile my little dolly on the shelf
Tell me is that a smile
Or is it somethin’ else ?

Now I work hard to prove my love is true
Now I work hard and I bring it on home to you
At night I pray as silently you lie
Some day my love again will rise
Like a shining torch in Gloria’s eyes

I was your big man I was your prince charming
King on a white horse now look how far I’ve fallen
