"When I Am King" as written by and Alan Doyle....
Wake up
Without a care
Your head's not heavy, your conscience clear
Sins are all forgiven here
Yours and mine
Fear is gone without a trace
It's the perfect time in the perfect place
Nothing's hurting, nothing's sore
No one suffers anymore
The doctor found a simple cure
Just in time

All these things if I were king
Would all appear around me
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king

Oh, she walks right in
She don't even knock
It's the girl you lost to the high school jock
She shuts the door, turns the lock
And she takes your hand
She says she always felt a fool
For picking the captain over you
She wonders if you missed her
Said she always told her sister
Oh, that you're the best damn kisser
That she's ever had

All these things if I were king
Would appear around me
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king

Daylight waits to shine until the moment you awaken
So you never miss the dawn
No question now, you know which road you're taking
Lights all green, the radio plays just the perfect song

Well, the war's been won
All the fights are fought
You find yourself in just the spot
It's a place where everybody's got a song to sing
Just like the final movie scene
The prince will find his perfect queen
The hero always saves the world
The villains get what they deserve
The boy will always get the girl
When I am king

    General Commentobviously about what would happen if he was king. how he'd right all the wrongs and make the world a better place. and of course you need to get something for yourself too "It's the girl you lost to the highschool jock"

    General CommentLyrics Corrections:

    Insert "No one suffers anymore" between "Nothings hurting, nothing's sore" and "The doctor found a simple cure"
    Repeat the chorus after "That she's ever had" and twice at the end of the song, with an extra repetition of "The world will sing when I am King" after the last chorus.


    Now that that's out of the way, this is a really catchy, upbeat song. It also describes what most people make make the world like if they ran the place. If you had ultimate power, wouldn't you make it so that good things really do happen to good people all the time?
