Who is the stranger who breaks every rule.
The Highwayman
He isn't a rogue, He isn't a fool.
The Highwayman
He's dashing and daring and ever may care.
The Highwayman
With a glint in his eye and the wind in his hair.
The Highwayman
Who is the highwayman? Who is the highwayman?

He's rough but he's handsome, he's gentle but strong.
The Highwayman
They say he's a nobleman who has gone wrong.
The Highwayman
He'll take all your jewels but do it with style.
The Highwayman
As he pockets your diamonds he'll flash you a smile.
The Highwayman
Who is the Highwayman? Who is the Highwayman?

I've never known anyone like him; he's like no one that I've ever met.
How easy he'll be to remember, how hard he will be to forget.

(Break in lyrics)

He's stolen from princes, he's stolen from Earls.
The Highwayman
But his greatest pleasure is stealing from girls.
The Highwayman
You'll feel empty inside when you see him divide.
The Highwayman
You may not realize but he's stolen your heart.
The Highwayman
Who is the Highwayman? Who is the Highwayman?
