"King Of The Mountain" as written by and Bon Jovi/sambora....
Listen people can't you hear the voices that are crying out
There's a hunger burning in the heart of their souls
Maybe now that I got you let me tell you what I'm talking 'bout
Stand up and shout tonight we'll lose control

I been down and mistreated
Now we're standing undefeated

[Chorus:]
I'm the King of the Mountain
I'm the King of the Hill
I'm the King of the Mountain
I'm the King of the Hill

You spend your life working 9 to 5 it's like doing time
Boss man says "Hey boy, you'll never be no good"
With the night there's a magic in the air that makes us come alive
Tonight's the night they can't put you down, no one could

I been down and mistreated
Now we're standing undefeated

[Chorus]

Listen people can't you hear the voices that are crying out.
There's a hunger burning in the heart of their souls.
Maybe now that I got you let me tell you what I'm talking 'bout
Stand up and shout tonight we'll lose control

I been down and mistreated
We won't be cheated
Now we're standing undefeated

[Chorus]

    General CommentI find an interesting association with "The Hobbit" from Tolkien, when Bilbo, Thorin and the other dwarfs reach the city in the lake. Thorin is the grandson of the King under the mountain and when they arrive they are very hungry.
