King Of Everything

They got this woman at the county fair
With a beard that hangs down below her thighs
She rides the unicorn around and around
And the audience can’t believe their eyes

I caught a matinee and far be it from me
To complain but she looked a little bored
What she was chasing that few will ever find
Does not elude me anymore

Fire all the movie stars they don’t move me like you do
Silence all the singers put away the dancing shoes
They can’t hit the target of this heart it’s only you
Sometimes all you need is 3 chords a cup of coffee and the truth

Tomorrow morning with a briefcase and a plan
And my hair smooth as asphalt in the sun
Up to the castle of the king of everything
I could march right in and meet him one on one

Our minds would meld and make more money than there is
Then I would IPO my fears
His crown is shiny but it’s heavy and it’s cold
And I got something more sincere

Fire all the movie stars they don’t move me like you do
Silence all the singers put away the dancing shoes
They can’t hit the target of this heart it’s only you
Sometimes all you need is 3 chords a slice of pizza and the truth

Are you thinking what I’m thinking
Maybe what’s her name with such a furry face
Can share some brightness a little more excitement
That his Highness might appreciate

She’ll dance the cha cha with her tigers bears and lions
And he’ll keep her circus dreams alive
Me I’ll go and see them the next time I’m in town
Just one more kaiser in disguise
