"King of the World" as written by and Susanne/seymour Hug....
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

They said, "As king of the world
You can have anything
Your greedy royal 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 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
