It's good to be king, if just for a while
To be there in velvet, yeah, to give 'em a smile
It's good to get high and never come down
It's good to be king of your own little town

Yeah, the world would swing, oh, if I were king
Can I help it if I still dream time to time

It's good to be king and have your own way
Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day
And when your bulldog barks and your canary sings
You're out there with winners, it's good to be king

Yeah I'll be king when dogs get wings
Can I help it if I still dream time to time

It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
A sweet little queen who can't run away
It's good to be king, whatever it pays

Excuse me if I have some place in my mind
Where I go time to time

    General CommentUsed to love this song since I was 17. Just saw the music video for the first time last week and it hit me it's clearly about mkultra monarch slaves and their handlers. Seeing a lot of this theme since I noticed it in the "Don't Come Around Here No More" Alice in Wonderland themed video and I'm watching "Mare Jane's Last Dance" to see if there's any symbolism there. Makes me question/pity Tom Petty.
