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 and he's 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, that 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
