He said he came from London
With violets for eyes
He told them he was honest
They believed him, no surprise

They followed him through Yorkshire
They went down to Liverpool
He gave them all fair warning
That they would cover up the fool

He's the man who thought he had it all
He's the man who thought he had it all

He performed for them each Tuesday
He played them Irish reels
He acted on the biggest stage
Oh, you must know how that feels

He kept promising them everything
He told them not to wait
He kept doing little plays for them
But their love just turned to hate

He's the man who thought he had it all
He's the man who thought he had it all

When you've gone as far as he has
If he goes as far as you
You'll be stuck in disappointment
With no one to see you through

Now he's living in a blank space
Where he's filling up for time
He promised he'd be back someday
You can guarantee those lines

He's the man who thought he had it all
He's the man who thought he had it all
He's the man who thought he had it all
He's the man who thought he had it all
