Lion In Winter

 Lion in my winter.
 I'm a lion with no crown.
 
 You wanna make me big man, a star on a screen.
 Some kind of James Brown or something in between.
 But when I ask for money you smother me in charms.
 I can't live on glory when your bendin' both my arms.
 
 I, I was a lion in winter.
 And man I had friends for miles around.
 I was a lion in my winter.
 What good's a lion, Lord, without a crown.
 
 You're living in a cave man, upon your marble throne.
 You think you own the heavens, but you've got to be alone.
 You know I prayed for sunshine, a woman with my name.
 You don't want to live man, you gave away the game.
 
 I, I was a lion in winter.
 And man I had friends for miles around.
 I was a lion in my winter.
 What good's a lion, Lord, without a crown.
