All The King's Gardens

Joan Armatrading

You're a highfaluting man
Mixing with dinner party freaks
And you're dating only ladies known as the circle elite
You put me down as part exchange
And left me there with all my dreams
Waiting at the gates of all the king's gardens

It does you good to know
You've got a pretty face
Your manners quite distinguished
As a gentleman's ought to be
You hurt this girl you left behind
You put me down as part exchange
Opened my eyes to all the king's gardens

Feel the pressure rising
Getting higher and higher
Come on home, crazy baby
Light my fire
I'll make you happy
Make you laugh
Think about the future
And not the past

You're a highfaluting man
Mixing with dinner party freaks
And you're dating only ladies known as the circle elite
You put me down as part exchange
And left me there with all my dreams
Waiting at the gates of all the king's gardens

Well you try to break me up
But I'll write it down as experience
Once bitten twice shy
But I'll make my comeback
You broke up but I still will try
I'll keep on trying until I
Open the gates to all the king's gardens
