There Once Was a Man is the third song from King George and the Ducky.

Lyrics

Melvin: There once was a man, a very rich man. He had a lot of sheep, he had a lot of land. He threw a lot of parties, he was dapper, he was tan. Yes, there once was a very rich man.

King George: Okay, great story. I'll see you next time-

Melvin: Wait just a minute, my story isn't done. It's about two men and I've only mentioned one.

King George: Oh.

Melvin: There once was a man, a very poor man. He had next to nothing, just a little lamb. But he loved it like a son and he fed it from his hand. Yes, there once was a very poor man. Then one day, there was a guest at the house of the rich man. What did he do, have you guessed, to feed the guest of the rich man?

King George: Well, let's see. He had plenty of sheep, so he could just share one of his sheep. Not a problem!

Melvin: He took the lamb of the poor man. He took the lamb of the poor man! The rich man took, to feed his guest, the very very poor man's lamb!

King George: What? Is that a- Is this a true story?!

Melvin: As surely as I stand before you today, my story is true.

King George: Who is that man?! Tell me! To take the lamb of the poor man! Why, he had lots of sheep, but the poor man only had one! Man! For his cruelty, he shall spend the rest of his days locked in my dungeon! Who is he?

Melvin: Oh, King George, you are that man!
