lyrics

king of the single's bars

i've been sitting here watching you
what you drink, how you’re dressed, the way you walk
you can throw me any line you like
actions speak louder than talk
i know you're looking for something
or you wouldn't have walked through the door
maybe a dance or a few compliments
maybe a whole lot more
everyone wants to be flattered
just got to know how to sell
i'm good at massaging egos
and a few other things as well
out on the streets i don't mean a thing
but down here at night i'm a king
i come out with the stars
i'm the king of the singles bars

i've been laughed at and spat on
had drinks thrown back in my face
i've been knocked back
more times than the pope's said grace
my feelings are armour plated
nothing can't dent my pride
for every woman who knocks me back
there's a hundred i haven't tried
lonely hearts and party girls
wall flowers and flirts
housewives from the suburbs
sick of making beds and ironing shirts
some come to play, some for romance
each has a reason, and each one’s a chance
i come out with the stars
i'm the king of the singles bars

i'm no valentino
i'm no great catch
i dress like a used car salesman
i’ve got the tongue to match
if you're hoping for a movie star
well it's time to cover your bets
take a look around this dump baby
i'm as good as it gets
the tank's full and the engines running
times ticking down on the clock
don't wanna drive onto the sunset darling
just once round the block
you could do better and maybe you will
but i love the chase as much as the kill
i come out with the stars
i'm the king of the singles bars
