"Not Even The King" as written by Alicia J Augello-cook and Emeli Sande....
Money
Some people so poor, all that they've got is money
Oh, and diamonds
Some people waste their life counting their thousands

I don't care what they're offering
How much gold they bring
They can't afford what we've had
Not even the king
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king

Oh, castles
Some people so lonely, what good is a castle
Surrounded by people?
But ain't got a friend that's not on the payroll

Oh, and I don't care what they bring
They can have everything
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
They can't afford what we've got
Not even the king

All the king's horses and all the king's men
Came charging to get what we got
They offered the crown and the offered the throne
I already got what I want

All the king's horses and all the king's men
They came marching through
They offered the world just to have what we got
But I found the world in you
I found the world in you

So darling, listen
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
Yeah, believe that
The trust that we feel the kings never felt that

Yeah, this is the song that we sing
We don't need anything
They can't afford this
This is priceless

Can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
Can't afford what we've got
Not even the king
