    "Tell The King" Lyrics

    The Libertines

    I've got a little secret for ya

    Even now there's something
    To be proud about
    You come up the hard way
    And they'll remind you every day
    You're nothing

    Oh my words in your mouth
    Are mumbled all about
    You're like a journalist
    How you can cut and paste and twist

    You're awful

    Tell it to your king
    Tell him everything you know
    Tell him you know how I feel
    Tell him you know how I feel at the palace gates
    Oh I'm all levered off my face
    And just to work out what it's on about
    And see snakes in eyes
    And danger signs

    If you were late you mustn't dare complain
    And you won't like this at all
    There's nothing to break your fall

    Oh tell it to your king
    Tell him everything you know
    And you know how I feel out of place
    Until I'm levered off my face
    And I can't work out what your on about
    Didn't they explain
    You have to play the game, oh-oh

    He drinks and smokes his cares away
    His heart is in the lonely way
    Living in the ruins
    Of a castle built on sand
