There Once Was a Man Lyrics

There once was a man who loved a woman
She was the one he slew a dragon for
They say that nobody ever loved as much as he
But me, I love you more

And there once was a man who loved a woman
She was the one he gave his kingdom for
They say that nobody ever loved as much as he
But me, I love you more

My love is a giant, fierce and defiant
But how can I prove it to you
Ain't got no kingdom or dragon
To back up my braggin'
How can I show what I would do

I only know there once was a man
Who loved a woman
She was the one he ate the apple for
They say that nobody ever loved as much as he
But me, I love you more

There once was a woman who loved a man
He was the one that she took poison for
They say that nobody ever loved as much as she
But me, I love you more

And there once was a woman who loved a man
He was the one she swam the channel for
They say that nobody ever loved as much as she
But me, I love you more

My love's meteoric, it's merely historic
A whirlwind, a cyclone on wheels
It rocks my whole solar plexus
It's bigger than Texas
I just can't tell you how it feels

I only know there once was a woman
Who loved a man
Loved him enough to cause the Trojan war
They say that nobody ever loved as much as she
But me, I love you more, more, more, more

More than a hangman loves his rope
More than a dopefiend loves his dope
More than an Injun loves his scalps
More than a yodeler loves his alps
More, more, more, more, more

There once was a man
There once was a woman
who loved a woman
who loved a man
She was the one he slew the dragon for
He was the one that she took poison for
They say that nobody ever loved as much as he she
But me, I love you more
But me, I love you more
