(Tennant/Lowe)
The cathedral's glittering on coronation day
Crowned heads and cardinals under military sway
I approach the altar slowly in a humble shroud
To receive the acclamation of the loyal crowd
Give me power over people
In a palace with a permanent guard
And the flags unfurled
Give devotion, dedication, celebration
Not some cheap charade
And I'll rule the world
All of these delusions of grandeur
'Cause they said: "We don't understand you"
And I want revenge
In audience I receive the media's pleas
They kiss my ring in interviews on bended knees
In victory I am magnanimous and charming when
I speak exclusively at length to CNN
About power over people
In a palace with a permanent guard
And the flags unfurled
With devotion, dedication, celebration
Not some cheap charade
I will rule the world
All of these delusions of grandeur
Because they said: "We don't understand you"
And I want revenge
Ring the bells, tell everyone
Ring the bells, tell everyone
Ring the bells, tell everyone
Revolution can be fun
All of these delusions of grandeur
'Cause they said: "We don't understand you"
And I want revenge
Give me power over people
In a palace with a permanent guard
And the flags unfurled
Give devotion, dedication, celebration
Not some cheap charade
And I'll rule the world
Ring the bells, tell everyone
Revolution can be fun
