BURT BACHARACH lyrics - The Hangman

BURT BACHARACH
"The Hangman"

The star on my chest
Tells me I can't rest
Till I find my man!
The trails getting hot
And I think I'm not
Far behind my man!

But there's one thing that I'm certain of
If I find my man, I'll lose my love
Oh no, oh no!
She couldn't give her heart to the hangman
And a hangman wants to be loved
Like any other man!
Yes, a hangman needs to be loved
Like any other man, any other man!

He's wanted and yet
She would help him get
Safely out of town!
She tells me that he
Couldn't kill and she'll
Never let him down!

And as sure as there's a sun above
If I find my man, I'll lose my love
Oh no, oh no!
She couldn't give her heart to the hangman
And a hangman wants to be loved
Like any other man!
Yes, a hangman needs to be loved
Like any other man, any other man!

My duty is clear
If we meet I fear
He cannot go free!
When fate turns the wheel
If I'm lucky he'll
Get away from me!

There is nothin else I'm thinkin' of
If I find my man, I'll lose my love
Oh no, oh no!
She couldn't give her heart to the hangman
Oh no, oh no!
She couldn't give her heart to the, to the...
