"Emperor" as written by John Lydon, John Mcgeogh and Alan Dias....
Is there a King that can do no wrong?
The crown that sings its very own song
When I play my fiddle, will I see you dance?
You crack this whip and I'll break my lance

You make me feel like an emperor
You make me feel so proud, so sure
So, so secure from the familiar
Uncommon sense is the great leveler

Best to flatter the devil, than fight him
The weak heart hidden in weaker sin
An occupation is as good as a land
In you I have a kingdom in the palm of my hand

You make me feel like an emperor
You make me feel so proud, so sure
So, so secure from the familiar
Uncommon sense is the great leveler

Emperor, we need you
An emperor
We need you

You see, even a speckle of sand
Could be dangerous in the right hand
An emperor, we need you
Yeah

Don't want to be no inflexible flake
Standing too brittle, I know that I'll break
All of them doors that I broke into
All of these doors I opened for you

I've seen too many crack at the seams
I see the wonder of all my wet dreams
Chance to put heaven back on this earth
Lift the hammer, lift the curse

You make me feel like an emperor
You make me feel so proud, so sure
So, so secure from the familiar
Uncommon sense, the great leveler
An emperor

You make me feel like an emperor
You make me feel so proud, so sure
So secure from the familiar
Uncommon sense is the great leveler
Emperor

You see, it's these little fears
That keep us in chains
Throw away every thought, flush down the drain
Sweet poetry, like an emperor
