First I was a beggar
Then I was a thief
Then I found a diamond ring
Well that was my belief
Then I was a prince
Later was a king
But then I lost my golden crown
So let the dance begin

I’ll dance…………..

Then I was a soldier
Fought a hundred wars
Won them all but ninety nine
At least I kept my horse
Met a lively princess
Who later was a queen
But ran off with a gypsy boy
So let the dance begin

I’ll dance……………..

Then I was a sailor
Sailed the seven seas
Rose to be an admiral
Your lordship if you please
Sailed the mighty ocean
My crew on whisky gin
But then the pirates stole my ship
So let the dance begin

I’ll dance………..
