King Of The World Lyrics

Hello one and all
Was it you I used to know
Can't you hear me call
On this old ham radio

All I got to say
I'm alive and feeling fine
Should you come my way
You can share my poison wine

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground
Where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
As far as I know

I won't take your bread
I don't need no helping hand
I can't be no savage
I can't be no highwayman

Show me where you are
You and I will spend this day
Driving in my car
Through the ruins of Santa Fe

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground
Where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
As far as I know

I'm reading last year's papers
Although I don't know why
Assassins, cons and rapers
Might as well die

When you come around
No more pain and no regrets
Watch the sun go brown
Smoking cobalt cigarettes

There's no need to hide
Taking things the easy way
If I stay inside
I might live 'till Saturday

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground
Where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
King of the world
As far as I know
