My mama had held me one time then kissed me goodbye
Bu I still believe in love
She never came back and I don't know why
But I still believe in love
She passed me her crown on her way out of town
But I still believe in love
She left me this kingdom to wear it around
But I still believe in love

Hail the Orphan King!
Wth the crooked smile and a crackerjack ring
An alley cat court and a song to sing
I still believe in love

Hail, Hail the Orphan King!
With the crooked smile and a crackerjack ring
An alley cat court and a song to sing
I still believe in love

I sleep in parked cars I drink in graveyards
Woke up in the shoolyard face down by a sqand car
I am the King

HAIL THE ORPHAN KING!
WITH A CROOKED SMILE
AND A CRACKERJACK RING
IT AIN'T EASY BEING KING
BUT I STILL BELIEVE
I
HAIL THE ORPHAND KING!
Still
SUPERHERO OF SUFFERING
Believe
LIKE MOSES AND BATMAN
In
AND JAMES DEAN
Love
