"King Kong" as written by and Dory Langdon Previn....
once i roamed a handsome thing
in my natural place
here i am repulsive
'cause i'm diff'rent from your race
who decides who's ugly?
who decides who's right?
i tell you
in my jungle
you would be a sorry sight
but we have never caged you

king kong came to our town
tore our town apart
king kong put the fear of jesus
into every heart

wait says king
wait i said i said
even though i am dead i'm dead
wait says king
though i died i died
hear hear hear hear hear
the other side
the other side

king kong came to our town
that's when we employed
decent weapons of defense
and king kong was destroyed

wait says king
you take someone
and put him in a cage
then you shoot him down 'cause he
retaliates with rage
with rage

king kong had no feelings
had no christian thought
for the feelings of the folks
he captured and he caught

i captured those
who captured me
i didn't want to die
you say i got no feelings
but you know
you know you lie
you know you lie

once i roamed a handsome thing
in my natural place
here i am repulsive
'cause i'm diff'rent from your race
who decides who's ugly?
who decides who's right?
i tell you
in my jungle
you would be a sorry sight
but we have never caged you
nor have we put you on display
and when you kill me
with your rifle
don't you know
who it is you slay?

king kong came to our town
tore our town apart
king king put the fear of jesus
into every heart

fear of god
ain't what you hear
pounding in your ear
christ is dead
i am too
the one you fear fear fear
you fear is...

king kong came to our town
tore our town apart
king kong pur the fear of jesus
into every heart

the one you fear is....
