Al Stewart - King Of Portugal Lyrics




Dreamed I was the King of Portugal
In a big four poster bed
Noble tapestries from wall to wall
And a crown upon my head
Bells ring and servants bring
The jewels and the robes
For the night to begin

Would you love me forever
If I had everything
Would you love me forever
If I were a king

Then it seemed that I was travelling
Through the granite hills of Dao
With a vineyard spread in front of me
In a carriage headed south
Night came with the skies aflame
And all that I saw
Was all mine to claim

There are those that can tell you
What your fantasies mean
But I don't feel the need to
Understand everything

    Hey....Peter White's solo is the same exact one he did on "Running Man" just repurposed.
    Heard this a million times before I ever noticed lolol

    Al Stewart is a very underrated lyrical artist and musician. I have enjoyed his historical storytelling over the last 40 years.

    Jack F

    dave alen .....read your post and then let out a big long satisfying fart.

  19. kirin2112

    If there was any justice in the world this whole album would have been a massive hit, alas it's not that well known which is more the pity but, frankly this is one of Stewart's best albums when taken as a whole. There's truly not a bad track on the entire record.

    David Lane

    I agree 100%, I played this continuously for months.   could not get enough.

    Jack F

    kirin2112 .....it has a great vibrancy. If you could see it as a coloured print it would be full of vivid hues.

  20. Ratama

    I wish I had posted this.

  21. Narasimhan S

    Surprisingly Stewart. Starts like a level42 number. Great song

  22. Laura Kothe
