I dreamed I did a good job and I got well paid
Blew it all at the penny arcade
A hundred dollars on a kewpie doll
I guess no white chick is gonna make me crawl
That's right

On a TWA to the promised land
Every woman, child and man
Gets a Cadillac and a diamond ring
Don't you know we're riding with the king?

He's on a mission of mercy to the new frontier
He's gonna check us all on out of here
Up to that mansion on a hill
Where you can get your prescription filled
Any kind of pill

On a TWA to the promised land
Everybody come on and clap your hands
Don't you just love the way he sings
Don't you know we're riding with the king?
We're riding with the king

A red cape and shiny cold .45
I never saw his face but I saw the light
Tonight everybody's getting their angel wings
Don't you know we're riding with the king?

Well I stepped out of a mirror at ten years old
With a suit cut sharp as a razor and a heart full of gold
I had a guitar hanging just about waist high
I'm gonna play that thing until the day I die

We're riding with the king
Don't you know we're riding with the king?
We're riding with the king
We're riding with the, hmmmm
Riding with the king
