King Of The World

This song is by Dan Bern and appears on the album Dan Bern (1997).

Well, they elected me King of the World
I said, "Here's what I'm gonna do
Send everybody over to China
Except for me and you

Strip ourselves naked, go to Beverly Center
Watch movies and eat Cinnabons"

I think I'm gonna like
Being king of the world for a change

And they said, "As king of the world
You can have anything
Your greedy little heart desires"

I said, "All I really want
Is some wide open space
Where I can set forest fires

I want peace and quiet
I want nudity
I want sex and wine and love"

They said "So let it be written
Your highness,
So let it be done"

I am the king, the king of the world
It could have been you, but it's me
I'm suprised you didn't hear about it
It was on the cover of Newsweek
November 1993

As king of the world
I'll occasionally go
To China to visit you guys
You don't have to be afraid
I don't need you to bow down
I'm not God, I'm just the king, I realize

Well, it might be kind of nice though
If you'd kiss me feet
And call me, "All knowing leader of men"
If you were king of the world
I'm sure you'd want the same
For yourself

I am the king of the world
King of the world
Can you believe my luck?
I'm king of the world

I'm king of the world
I'm king of the world
Can you believe my luck?
I'm king of the world

Woo hoo
I'm the King
