The King Of Soho

I am The King of Soho, I was born to spin a hustle
It took time to find my mojo, till I found it on The Dean Street Shuffle
The name is a derivation from an age-old hunting cry
And if you follow The King of Soho
You’ll be hunting till the day you die

And what you won’t see, you won’t know,
When you find yourself in Soho
You can’t avoid it or confront it
You’re gonna have to be the hunter or the hunted

If someone’s gonna win, someone needs to lose
I’m begging on a whim but I take what I’m due
I fall in and out of love to the sound of the street
I know it’s wrong ‘cause every night she takes me and she breaks me
But she makes my heart beat.

Yes they call me The King of Soho, like a knife that’s double edged
I’m the life and soul. I’m out of control or so it’s been alleged
No I can’t stop this excursion; it was in my destiny
I changed the rules of the game, just to entertain
I started in variety

And what you don’t see, you don’t know,
If you find yourself in Soho
You can’t decry it or deny it
You’re gonna have to keep your mouth shut till you’ve tried it

If someone’s gonna win, someone needs to lose
I’m begging on a whim but I take what I’m due
I fall in and out of love to the sound of the street
I know it’s wrong ‘cause every night she takes me and she breaks me
But she makes my heart beat.

So gamble everything you’ve got tonight
She won’t care if it’s wrong or right.

If someone’s gonna win, someone needs to lose
I’m begging on a whim but I take what I’m due
I fall in and out of love to the sound of the street
I know it’s wrong ‘cause every night she takes me and she breaks me

But If someone’s gonna win, someone needs to lose
I’m begging on a whim but I take what I’m due
I fall in and out of love to the sound of the street
I know it’s wrong ‘cause every night she takes me
And you know she’s gonna break me
Escaping is a no go, yes they call me The King of Soho
