The King Of Names (LP Version)

The King Of Names (LP Version)

Peter, Paul and Mary

There's a man goin' 'round takin' names,
Well there's a man goin' 'round takin' names.
He took my father's name,
And he left my heart in pain,
There's a man goin' 'round takin' names.

An' he took that liar's name, takin' names,
He took that liar's name, takin' names.
He took that liar's name,
His tongue got twisted and it died in shame,
There's a man goin' 'round takin' names.

When the child saw the man takin' names,
What a funny, what a funny game, takin' names!
He took his brother's name,
And he took his father's name,
When the child saw the man takin' names.

And there's a King on the throne takin' names,
There's a King on the throne takin' names;
And there's a priest in flames,
And the court's gone insane,
And the King's sittin' there takin' names.

I had a dream, I had a dream,
I had a dream last night that worried me,
It worried me.
Trees were bending, People were trembling,
I had a dream that worried me, that worried me, worried me.

There's a man goin' 'round takin' names,
There's a man goin' 'round takin' names.
He took my father's name,
And he left me there in pain,
There's a man goin' 'round takin' names.
